Today’s the day we share our Stonemountain Spotlight staff makes! For this edition of the Spotlight, our talented staff created garments using one of the shop’s favorite Better Basics, Mammoth Flannel. We’re so excited to share everyone’s projects with you.
A Brief History
Why Mammoth Flannel? This collection of high quality cotton flannels comes to us from another family fabric business, Robert Kaufman Fabrics. The owners of Stonemountain & Daughter have known the owners of Robert Kaufman Fabrics since the 1950s! Based in Los Angeles, Robert Kaufman Fabrics is our #1 fabric resource today—we love knowing that when we buy from Robert Kaufman, we are stocking quality fabrics that are perfect for everyday garments and home decor items. Many of their fabrics can be reordered, so we can stock these staple fabrics for you season after season!
Get to Know Mammoth Flannel
Mammoth Flannel just might become your new favorite fabric—it’s one of the thickest cotton flannels we carry, with a dense weave and a brushed face to keep you warm and cozy. Our collection includes solids as well as yarn-dyed plaids and checks for lots of mix-and-match options, and the line includes some organic flannels, too. To start the year, our staff used Mammoth Flannel to create jackets, shirts, dresses, pants, pajamas, and a skirt for our Stonemountain Spotlight—scroll down for all the details on these fantastic flannel creations!
Kristen liked the rich, vibrant colors in Mammoth Flannel and appreciated that it was easy to press yet still squishy. She made the Lottie Shirt/Dress modified to tunic length and fully lined to combat flannel clinginess. Kristen found patience essential for careful pattern matching while cutting, and used a walking foot to keep her stitching smooth. Kristen said, “This garment is my typical style, styled with leggings or slim fit jeans and layers! It could have a cardigan over top or a long sleeve tee underneath. It’s a perfect Bay Area layering garment for fall and winter!”
