The famous words uttered by the father of the blueberry girl from Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. In fact, violet was turning more of blueberry shade than a violet but we can't help but think of this phrase when "violet" is uttered from the lips of just about anyone. This year, pantone and others are making a big to do about a color called "ultra violet."
Fall's here and we're feeling the layers. Right now we're working on adding the finishing touches to our Balsam Jacket. This beauty's made from 100% Organic Spiritex Lightweight French Terry and features a pleated scarf collar, tuck details to accentuate and flatter all shapes, and ethically sourced antler buttons (fun fact: deer shed their antlers).
Today the sewing room has been working hard to crank out our newest RAD Dress. It's a sweatshirt, dress, hoodie, cowl hybrid so it couldn't be anything other than rad. Throw it on over your favorite shirt with some leggings or jeans or tights or whatever. Pants or no pants, this thing is probably the most comfortable piece of clothing that has graced any lady face.
Fall is in the air and so is the crispy. We love fall because it means you can layer up your look. There's really nothing better than a good hoodie. Our hoodies come in a few different styles, the one pictured is made from 100% Organic Cotton Heavy Weight French Terry. It's got a lined hood and a standard kangaroo pocket up front.
For those of you who didn't know, we do a lot of our production cutting at our Riverside dr. warehouse where we also warehouse finished fabric and apparel and our design/sample studio resides. The warehouse is in Woodfin, about four miles from our downtown Asheville store.
Capturing light in a specific way is no easy feat. Call it being in the right place at the right time, or just call it being plain patient- not all photos are created equal. Evan Anderson truly has a gift for capturing so much more than an image in his work. It's like he's actually encapsulating a whole feeling. It gives us the feels anyway.
Since we cut an sew most of our garments in house, we're generally left to problem solve in order to figure out how to utilize the scrap left over from the edges of the marker. The marker is all the pattern pieces laid out on a giant sheet of paper used to lay on top of the fabric to cut quickly and efficiently.
So after asking ML for a poncho for a few years now, those of us askers have finally been granted a wish! We took some Spiritex luxuriously loopy heavy weight French Terry and cut it into a poncho, with a hood and a pocket!! It's pretty dope if I do say so myself. F'real, it's like a fashionable snuggie. The hood on this thing is a cowl hood combo kind of, omg so trendy.
