Introducing the Fillmore Duster!

Introducing the Fillmore Duster!

We are excited to launch our new pattern, the Fillmore Duster! 

We had a tough time naming this pattern. It can be worn as a long vest, a topper, a dress... So we landed on Duster! 

​Because our Fillmore Duster is incredibly versatile, we wanted to show some of the ways we have styled it. Be sure to look at our Gallery for inspiration. And send in your photos of your completed TSW garments. You may be featured in our Gallery! Remember, the best photos show the garment:

  • ​On a person
  • Against a relatively plain background 
  • In good light

Teal and black wool stripe knit. Also available in tan and black

When we introduced the pattern at #SewStitchExpo2016 this cotton sateen version was our most popular. Everyone loved the color choices and how well the garment works for so many body types!

Erin's favorite way to wear the Fillmore Duster is as a dress with a fun pop of print on the sleeves underneath. 

The vivid blue wool crepe is available here.

The red cotton/linen is here

Worn buttoned closed in a fantastic print. The stripes change direction on the different circular panels.

And seriously, how fun is this? I'll be doing this all day when I wear it!

Looking forward to receiving my Fillmore pattern via the autoship program. I was hoping to have one made up to wear to the Atlanta Expo next week but the USPS must be using pony express these days :p What size are the ones that you all are modeling and can wear? I usually make the same size as Linda wears.

These are mostly smalls and mediums. Linda's teal stripe version is a medium. The black and white stripe is size small, as is the cotton sateen version (it was too tight around the arm and bust for Linda although you can't tell in the pic).

Is that marvelous turquoise/block stripe fabric shown as the model available? How about the fabric with little mini stripes that Linda is wearing at the sew expo? I'm interested in either fabric for the Fillmore Duster. Thanks.

Great question, Linda. I should have mentioned the stripe is available and we LOVE it. It's a gorgeous wool knit stripe. It is product number 10-815-28. There is also a tan and black version, 10-815-29. Unfortunately, all we have left of Linda's stripe crepe is a 1 yard end cut. Not enough for the whole duster, but you could combine it with another fabric. 3-1015-14 is the end cut.

Can't wait to stitch this. I'm going to use line.

How easy would this be to shorten if I wanted more of a vest look? I missed Puyallup this year! Sigh! Will try and get there again next year.

I consulted Kathy for the answer and she says it will be tricky, but there are some people doing it. You can either enjoy it as a long vest, or give it a (careful) try. First, start right below the bust where there are the least amount of seams, pockets, etc. to maneuver. You must pay attention to 360 degrees of the garment as you make the adjustments because so many of the seams are curved. Next, you could shorten more from about midway down the large front circular panels. At that line, you'll have to gradually connect all the curves as you make the changes. Good luck and thanks for the question!
