In the Wild: Amy’s Finlayson (and a give-away!)

In the wild banner - medium

We’re thrilled with the enthusiastic response we’ve received about our newest pattern, the Finlayson!  I know fall might seem a long way off here in the Northern Hemisphere but this you will have plenty of time to find the perfect fabric and sew a few sweaters before the weather even begins to change :).  And for those in the Southern Hemisphere, hopefully this new sweater will be a nice addition to your mid-winter wardrobe and I’m sure will pair perfectly with a nice cup of cocoa!

For today’s In the Wild post, I’d like to show off Amy’s Finlayson hoodie.  She was one of our very helpful test sewers who contributed greatly to some of the finishing options and thoughtful details now included in the pattern (she came up with the method for applying the twill tape to the kangaroo pocket!).  She just launched a blog post complete with a give-away last night.  Head on over to her blog to see some great Finlayson photos, hear her review of the pattern, and enter to win a Finlayson pattern of your own!

In the Wild: Featuring finished Thread Theory makes

Today marks the first day of what will (I hope!) be our first regular series on the blog!  Each Tuesday morning I’ll be posting a new Thread Theory garment that I’ve seen around the internet or sewn myself throughout the previous week.  There are so many amazing menswear pieces popping up on blogs and social media sites lately.  Every time I see a new one my drive to create more menswear garments is happily refreshed.  It is most definitely time I share them with you so you can feel the same!
