O! Jolly! Crafting Fashion by Olgalyn Jolly

My name is Olgalyn Jolly and I'm a designer of knitted textiles and knitwear in New York City. My past work includes heading my own knitwear line and developing stitch patterns for leading fashion designers and retailers. You may have seen my designs in Bloomingdale's, Macy's, Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord & Taylor, or your local boutique. I currently teach knitwear design to third year fashion design majors at New York City's Fashion Institute of Technology.

I'm attracted to and inspired by beautiful fibers. With beautiful yarn and good knit design it's possible to create the most intricate, textured accessory or a simple, classic garment with an elegant drape. I love the versatility of knits!

My personal mission at the Crafting Fashion Shop is to bring quality and unusual sweater knit fabrics to home sewists and professionals alike. Most of these fabrics are unique to my online shops, as I’ve personally sourced the yarns and had the fabrics knitted to my specifications at knitting mills in the New York City area.

If you're a home sewist and you’d like information on cutting and sewing these fabrics, please read my blog at, where you’ll find tips, tutorials, and pictures of garments sewn with my sweater knit fabrics.

Additional policies and FAQs
A special note to everyone: Before committing stitch to fabric, be sure to practice on the cutaways first, getting stitch length and width and all the settings just right. Once these are correct, working with sweater knit fabrics will be an absolute pleasure. :)

--I'd like a sample of your custom fabric because I need to see the color/texture/drape in real life. Can I get a free swatch?
No, but I totally understand your need to see and touch the fabric "live". That's why swatches for ready-to-ship fabrics are available at $1.25 each.

--Aren't your prices a little high?
Yes and no. Yes, when compared to fabrics you might find at a big box store or online from questionable sources. No, when compared to the fabrics used in luxury brands. I use only the highest quality yarns, purchased from quality producers and distributors. The fabrics are designed and developed with great dedication and attention to detail. Please realize that I'm not providing an everyday fabric for everybody. It is indeed a luxury item. I'm happy to be able to offer some fabrics in quantities as small 18 inches by 18 inches, an excellent size for gifts and little luxurious treats for yourself. If you have a top of the line sewing machine or serger and have never worked with artisan knit fabrics, give it a try. You'll love the way the fabric looks, feels, and behaves!

--I like your fabrics, but I don't see exactly what I want in your shop. Do you take special orders?
Yes. If you need another color of something in the shop or a variation of a swatch you've seen on my site or even something very different, I might be able to help you. Swatches for custom fabrics are available, starting at $110 for a production swatch of approximately 12 inches x 12 inches. Order a production swatch before you place a custom color or custom fiber order for a fabric design already in the shop, so that you can see the color and feel the fabric you'll be ordering. For instance, if you'd like to order Washington Square in natural cotton, instead of the pictured deep raspberry or dark chocolate, order a production swatch first. Half the price of your first production swatch will be deducted from the price of your future order. Click "Request a custom order".

Need something original? You can order an Original Design Swatch. Please convo me for an estimate. My original designs have been purchased by prominent designers, department stores, and specialty shops. You will own exclusive rights to the design I create for you. Please click "Request a custom order". and we can discuss what you have in mind.


All fabrics on in this shop are responsibly knitted in New York City or the surrounding area. Some fabrics are produced in small lots and cannot be reordered due to yarn unavailability or other reason. Many fabrics can be reordered. If a fabric you'd like to purchase is currently out of stock, please convo me to ask if the fabric can be made available again.
