Willow Fabric Recommendations
Grainline Studio Blog

Today’s post is all about recommended fabrics for the Willow Tank & Dress. First I’ll walk you through the fabrics we used for our samples, followed by a chart showing a few commonly used fabrics and their composition & weight. I hope this gives you an idea of how a similar fabric could work.  For the tank version of the Willow we used a lightweight linen. This fabric is lightweight enough that it’s a bit sheer and for that reason it’s a better choice for the dress than the top. Despite the oz weight of the fabric being quite light at 3.83 oz, the structure of the linen keeps it ..read more

New Field Bag Artist Series Kit | Bob Bechtol 02

Yesterday we launched a second series of limited edition Field Bag kits that sold out before we could even post about them here…again!⁠ The reception of the first edition of the hand-painted Field Bag Kits was incredible and so we enlisted Karen’s husband, Bob Bechtol, to do a second edition for the holidays. This batch is similar to the first stylistically, but incorporates pinks and sunny yellow bits along with the blacks and whites. Some are softer and more atmospheric, some bolder, and no two are alike – so what you'll make with the kit is a truly one-of-a-kind bag for yourself or a loved ..read more

Our Corin Sample Fabrics

Today I’ll be walking you through all the fabrics that we used for our Corin Top samples. It’s one thing for me to just recommend a list of fabrics, especially since they sell out so quickly, but I find it so much more helpful to see the fabric details along with how they sewed up. I can really get an idea of how a similar fabric will work that way. For that reason we tried to use a variety of fabrics for each of our samples. For Dani's non-elastic version we used this 100% linen watercolor leaves print from Blackbird Fabrics. The slightly stiff drape of linen combined with the linen's m ..read more
