A Tour of the Stylecamp Sewing Room
Welcome to the Stylecamp sewing room! Here is where all the pieces are designed, drafted, handcut and made before being packaged for delivery. It's a great space to work in, so allow me to take you on a little tour:
The sewing room is a light, bright space filled with everything needed for designing and making here at Stylecamp.
The room centres around large cutting tables that offer plenty of space to move around them. Underneath these tables there are sections for storing fabric, garment patterns and swatches, as well as a trolley keeping all the paper and fabric cutting tools within easy reach.
The tables are overlooked by Stylecamp's signature print that represents the sun-kissed glamorous feeling of the brand, with its sunny colour palette and simple design reminiscent of vintage travel posters and travels to faraway destinations.
Colour is such an important, feel-good element of Stylecamp, which is why everything is made in a range of holiday-bright coloured fabrics, some of which can be seen on the shelf on the left.
A large window brings lots of natural light into the white-walled room. The clean aesthetic enables good visibility for sewing and for the space to double up as a photographic studio, ready for taking product photos or creating content. You can also see the ironing station below which is used throughout the making process.
The fabric and wardrobe wall is one of the most eye-catching elements of the room - handy for storing the most-used or most-delicate fabrics, and for keeping garment samples hanging and crease-free.
Leading into the room you'll find the brand logo which was handcrafted from clay for a 3D effect, and it appears in the background of lots of Stylecamp content.
On the opposite side is the sewing area where all the machines are kept, with additional storage for threads, bobbins, elastics and other haberdashery needed for making. The locker is a stand-out in Stylecamp pink, and is large enough to keep everything stashed away tidily.
Three main sewing machines feature here, including a coverstitch machine for hems, and an overlock machine for general seams and finishing. In the centre is the trusty Frister-Rossman sewing machine which sews all the bits in-between. A good solid machine with multiple stitch functions, which works amazingly for its 50+ years.
The pegboard attached to the back keeps all the most used tools organised and within easy reach, from scissors and elastics to pins and bobbins. Pegboards are essential for any sewing room or workshop!
Reference books are displayed on various shelves around the room to keep them close to hand, especially useful to dip into when it comes to designing new pieces for Stylecamp.
In the background a magnetic whiteboard helps with planning new designs and making notes. Magnetic post-it notes (pictured on the locker) are also great for quick reference of machine settings and more.
Lastly, every sewing room needs space for a whippet to trot into every now and again, in total comfort in the sunny spot by the window..!
I hope you enjoyed this look around the sewing room. I really enjoy working in this space and look forward to making something for you very soon! If you have any questions, feel free to ask down below. Alternatively, why not shop the collection and see what's new?
