Out of Line was created out of a realization that there was a need for a high quality jersey clothing option for women. One made from primarily natural fibers, designed to wash, wear, and repeat. Garments with clean lines and unexpected design elements.
I have been working with jersey fabric for 20+ years. I use industrial machines that give the seams a very finished clean look. I am very choosy about fabrics. I’ve found that my favorite jersey is a cotton spandex blend 95% cotton, 5% spandex. Most of my fabrics will be about 95% natural fiber with the remaining content a stretch element.
All the cutting and sewing is done here in my studio, piece by piece, made to order. I consider this process “slow fashion” along the lines of the slow food movement. These garments are made with care to wear and wear…
Out of Line was started in 2000, while I was a single mom to my then 5 year old. I have truly raised both my daughter and this line together and have calmed myself many times with the words “baby steps”. Thanks to everyone who has supported Out of Line over the years- at markets, through boutiques, and online!
