A weekend at Mulberry Silks

Last weekend Linda traveled to Mulberry Silks to teach a workshop. Mulberry Silks & Fine Fabrics is an independent fabric store and sewing studio in North Carolina. This beautiful store, which is located in an old mill in downtown Carrboro, has been in business for 35 years, which is certainly a milestone in this day and age. Linda spent two days there working with sewists on fitting and wardrobe inspiration, and came back with inspiration of her own. We love seeing how our customers make our patterns, it always gives us a fresh perspective on our designs. We want to share with you some of the gorgeous garments Linda saw during the workshop, in hopes that it will inspire you as well!

Liz and Kathy, the owners of Mulberry Silks, model two lengths of the Tremont Jacket. With Linda in-house to help, her workshops are a perfect time to try variations on Sewing Workshop patterns. Above, Kathy helps Nancy with her lengthened and trimmed Liberty Shirt.

Nancy has a great Sewing Workshop wardrobe! Here she wears a pink Now Jacket.

And here she is in a gorgeous lengthened MixIt Top. Don't you love that piping? 

And finally, she showed us her elegant black Onde Jacket

How pretty is Pam's Urban Shirt without the flange. This is a great staple garment. 

Patty tried our new Zayn Shirt using this fun knit print - Stitched Floral Knit Print. If you want to make a similar Zayn, click here to check out our selection of knit prints. 

Love this modified eTee that Carol made – we are always a fan of mixing fabrics. 

Anne made a Tremont Jacket that is perfect for summer. I love seeing it paired with a dress. Normally we think of it with pants, but this is a great look!
