Fabrics Used: Green Interlock
The Visionary: Kelli, True Bias
Our Thoughts: Kelli at True Bias made a really cute romper for her daughter using our Green Interlock. So cute!
I haven’t sewn with a lot of organic or fair trade fabrics before and was curious with all of the recent news happenings in the world of fashion and fabric of late. I feel generally good about the fact that I make such a large percentage of my own and my children’s clothes and are therefore contributing less to the problems of fast fashion, but then there is the next step of being aware of where the fabric I use comes from. Organic Cotton Plus is certified under the Global Organic Textile Standards and is committed to fair labor and sustainable materials.
I chose to review some of their interlock knit and couldn’t resist their dark green color (the color of the season :). The fabric came fast and in nice minimilist packaging. It’s the perfect knit to sew with – washes up great, and not too slinky so that it gets caught up in your machine and is hard to cut, but still soft on your skin. I have some fabric left over from making the romper and plan on making myself a stretch skirt soon. If eco friendly fabric is something that is important to you I highly recommend checking out Organic Cotton Plus.
