Happy Birthday Jemima Waistcoat! 13 results


It‚Äôs been one whole year since we launched the Jemima Waistcoat. Where has that gone?!ūüė≤

Did you know, the Jemima Waistcoat was originally designed and created after Chloe, our designer, was inspired by all the wonderful costumes she worked within theatre? "Having made tonnes for different shows, I wanted to make a waistcoat for myself that suited me."

Years later, when we decided to launch The Pattern Stash at Fabworks, we thought the waistcoat would be the perfect garment to launch alongside our gorgeous HOH Thistledown Marl Wools! 

The Jemima Waistcoat was also perfect for many of our other fabulous wool fabrics we stock at Fabworks! Many times, we have had customers coming into the Mill Shop and saying ‚ÄúOoh I love this fabric but wouldn‚Äôt know what to make with it!‚ÄĚ Our goal now is to create stunning sewing patterns to sit alongside our gorgeous Fabworks fabrics to act as a source of inspiration!¬†
