Metallic Quilted Linden

I’ve got another Grainline Linden sweatshirt to share! It is a surprise to me that I’ve only made three of these so far – but I’m sure by this time next year there will be a dozen. In fact I’ve got a fluffy white organic cotton fleece standing by. I am a little concerned that a plain white sweatshirt will be too boring – any ideas for embellishing it? Maybe embroidery

This was taken with a sculpture by Patrick Amiot – a local artist in Sebastopol. I couldn’t resist the farm girl and her pig. I’m sure she sews.

The fabric for this one is a quilted black poly with splotches of metallic silver. I overexposed this photo so it’s easier to see what the fabric looks like. I’m not a huge fan of poly (major understatement) but this one just looked so cool I had to have it. No regrets.

Details: Linden sweatshirt by Grainline, sz 2 graded to sz 4 at hip, shortened the body (front & back) by 2″

    Every time I see another Linden I feel like i must buy that pattern next! I’ve seen a few woven versions lately too … yours is very nice!

    Love it! Linden is perfect for northern California, it makes complete sense that you can’t stop making them! I just finished my first one a couple weeks ago and have worn it every single day on the weekend so far. Clearly I need another (or two)!

    This looks great on you! Yes, some of the coolest, really fun and funky fabrics are poly and it would be a shame to not enjoy them too. Also I think a white fluffy fleece one would not be boring at all, I would wear something like that a tonne! 🙂
