Mountain Collection II

MaaiDesign x Winding Road Design Studio Collaboration II

The first Mountain collection was such a great success, so of course we had to come back for round two!

We again collaborated with local artist, Alicia, from Winding Road Design Studios to transform her incredible designs into fabric!

Alicia is based in Tawonga at the base of Mt Bogong and draws much of her inspiration from her local environment. In northeast Victoria, we enjoy a unique mix of Australian native bush and deciduous trees, which are cleverly interpreted into her art.

To prepare and test the fabric, Maaike and the team have been sewing up a storm which will also help you get a sense of quality and scale in these designs. We hope these garments give you inspiration for your own makes.

This collection again includes cotton jersey and the fine cotton poplin, but we've added linen as well this time.

To make it easy, we have collated a list of all the patterns we used for the photoshoot below:

Fringe Dress Hacked into a top (inspired by this Instagram post)

fabric: Zen Garden Black and White Linen

Ever since we spotted that great hack on Instagram we've been keen to copy it. This is basically the top of the dress with a split hem added. 

This pattern is easy to sew and comes together quickly.

Remy raglan in linen

Sew House 7 - Remy Raglan
fabric: Gingko Clay linen

One of the quickest woven tops to sew out there. The Remy raglan is one of our most popular patterns as it is very beginner friendly, and comes with a few nice options too.

fabric: Gingko cotton poplin in Pink

The Carolyn Pyjamas allows you to sew a very fancy pair of pjs. It is a bit more involved than most of the patterns in this list, but oh so rewarding. The pattern instructions are very detailed, like holding your hand every step of the way.
