Earlier this year, after months of careful preparation selecting fabrics, colors, and silhouettes to translate our vision from paper to concept to reality, we launched our new Alabama Chanin collection. Here, we highlight some of our favorite new springtime-appropriate pieces.

Our Magdalena V-neck Shell Top (above) features our Magdalena stencil in placement fashion, hand sewn in backstitch reverse appliqué. Offered in 100% lightweight cotton jersey and three sleeve lengths, this top has a casual but feminine fit, and is slightly nipped at the waist. The beautiful tone-on-tone detailing around the neckline highlights the chest and neck, bringing attention to the face.


The Scallops Boatneck Top, with a modest, feminine look that accentuates the neck and collarbone, is quickly becoming one of our more popular collection pieces. Versatile, yet classic, the top features our Large Scallops pattern in reverse appliqué. Slightly fitted with darts, a subtle drape through the neckline adds a flirty detail to the top, which can be paired with everything from jeans to elaborately detailed skirts.


We’ve included several variations of our Tiered Dress in the new collection. The Painted Magdalena Tiered Dress has become a favorite, as it features a subtle, hand-painted stencil on the middle tier. This dress is perfect for those searching for something basic, but still undeniably Alabama Chanin-style. Fitted through the bust with a generous flair to the hem, this tiered dress comes in Black; you choose the third tier color (shown here in Navy).


The Beaded Mid-Length Skirt, made from 100% organic lightweight cotton jersey, has been a personal favorite of mine for some time. It is versatile and the perfect length—measuring 32” from waist to hem—wear it alone, or layer it underneath a shorter skirt or dress for a bit of extra length and coverage. The beaded detail around the hem adds a just the right amount of embellishment.

    Hi! I have been coveting the boatneck top and wondered if you were going to make that available in either the DIY section or in a later book or other capacity where we can enjoy making one up? Wish I could splurge…..thank you for the lovely work and inspiration you all do.
