Faron // fabric ideas

We had so much fun choosing fabrics for our Faron samples, and wanted to share some of the fabrics we used, and a couple still on our list to sew up!



Is there anything more luscious than an amazing piece of wool? We like to steam-shrink with an iron before cutting out the pieces, but make sure you test a swatch first!

Find this fabric here (414 - grey & natural herringbone).


We love corduroy for the Faron jumper! Just make sure to remember it has nap and you may need to deviate from the cutting instructions to ensure all pieces are cut in the right direction!

Find this fabric here.



Linen would be a great fabric to sew a Faron for summer. It’s breathable, easy to clean, and has amazing drape. A linen Faron would be so cute over a summery tee or tank top.

Find this fabric here.


We love the idea of a Faron with slightly more give. You’ll want to find a fairly stable medium to heavy weight ponte, and you might even size down a bit for less ease.

Find this fabric here.

A denim Faron is definitely on our sewing list. We recommend using something similar to the weight you’d want for jeans to ensure enough body in the garment. Also, depending on the wash, you may have to pre-wash a couple times to get all the extra dye out!

Meet Elwynn and Faron

Launch day is here and we’re so excited to finally share our first two patterns!!! ….Introducing the Faron jumper dress and the Elwynn blouse!



The Elwynn keyhole blouse is a yoked blouse with bust darts, a back keyhole, and capped sleeves.

View A has a Peter Pan collar and a tie closure. View B has a button and loop closure.

Our favorite Elwynn tops are sewn with drapey lightweight fabrics. You can also use a crisper fabric for a more structured look. The Elwynn is so easy to throw on over a pair of leggings or jeans, or to dress up with a cute skirt. You can sew it all in the same fabric, or have fun with color-blocking.

The Faron jumper is a sleeveless overdress with a scooped front neckline and low back, front and back princess seams, an a-line skirt, and a separating zipper opening in the front.

Faron is designed to be worn over other garments, such as blouses and t-shirts. (Or Elwynn.)

Faron works best with heavier weight fabrics and is such an easy dress to wear! Throw it on over a t-shirt or a cute blouse and you’re good to go. We made ours out of wool and corduroy — super warm for winter, and easy to accessorize with cute boots and scarves.
