Our Thoughts: Heather from Feathers Flights made a maternity sweat shirt with slits using our Cornflower Interlock. She looks so elegant.
As I've unpacked all my maternity and nursing clothes from my last pregnancy, I've realized I don't really have anything for winter. Henry was born in September so all my maternity clothes are basically shorts and tees. I need to make a bunch of winter maternity clothes before the snow comes! At Organic Cotton Plus they have lots of different types of fabric, but I, of course, chose knit. I can't go against my first true love, right? I chose interlock in cornflower because I wanted to make a maternity sweatshirt. Interlock is more stable than jersey but not quite as thick as sweatshirt fleece.
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.
