Grainline Studios began as the personal sewing and project blog of Jen Beeman, designer and patternmaker behind the company. Having studied fashion design at Columbia College where she focused on patternmaking and technical design, Jen enjoyed inspiring people with her projects and sharing tips and tricks she learned from school, and friends. People began responding very positively to the clothing that Jen was drafting for herself and they began requesting the patterns. Jen made PDF downloads of her patterns available online and with their popularity, the rest was history!
With their modern, simple aesthetic, Grainline patterns are definitely made to be the workhorse pieces of your wardrobe. Striking yet streamlined they can be both casual and business appropriate depending on the fabrics chosen! Tops, skirts, a blazer and even a travel bag set, Grainline has you covered with patterns for all the basics!
I think it’s safe to say that we at Harts are OBSESSED with Grainline Studio’s Scout Tee pattern!
The much-revered Scout Tee!
The Scout Tee was the pattern to knock Colette’s Hawthorn down from its coveted first place! It’s just such an easy, versatile pattern that even the most unmotivated of seamstresses can bust out two or three of over the course of a week! It’s a joke at Harts now that if you find a fabric you like but don’t know what to make with it– make a Scout Tee!
We are so excited to have Grainline as one of our sponsors for Sew Your Hart Out September! If you have never used a Grainline pattern, we HIGHLY recommend them! Don’t forget to share your project photos with us! We want to see all your Grainline pieces!!
