Sewing the finishing touch on a Holographic Polka Dot Tee- my cleaning kitty label that says "wash me gently, wash me slowly, take it easy, inside out" smile
LOVE this custom holographic tee we just made. We have five tee colour options for this style, which all look amazing with the holographic appliqués.

About

No rush is the best rush.

Hello! Skinny Sweats is a line of loungewear with a tailored fit, designed by me Adrienne Butikofer. The main objective behind my work is joy, which I bring to the surface with comfort, style, and humour. I make loungewear that feels amazing but looks good too. You can absolutely wear it out of the house.

The line is named after the Basic Skinny Sweats that I first started making in 2006, alongside the contemporary womenswear I was making at the time. After I started a family I wanted to narrow my focus so I started Skinny Sweats as a brand in 2012 with the one singular style.

Skinny Sweats has evolved over the past few years to include other pants styles, tshirts and sweatshirts. I like things that are a little funny, contradictory, complimentary, and seriously irreverent. Skinny Sweats is a pattern study on the same styles over time.. I develop and produce collections and new pieces thoughtfully, and release new work when it comes up.

I sincerely LOVE what I do, I hope my maker's joy translates into my work. I make all my own patterns and samples, and am the sewer behind all made to order pieces you find in my shop. I have help from three Toronto manufacturers with a portion of the sewing of my collection.

Although Skinny Sweats is still young, I'm not new to fashion. I have been working in the fashion industry in Toronto since 2004. I had a contemporary women's wear label named Butikofer up until 2009 when I had my first child, which turned into an extended leave to have my second. You can see some of my past work at www.butikofer.com. I graduated from the Fashion Design Program at Fanshawe College in 2003.

Skinny Sweats is polished comfort, made for a woman who loves fashion and wants to maintain her personal style on her days off. Hope you love them as much as I do!

Lazy, Sexy, Cool.
