Our Thoughts: Denise at Whimsy Couture made a cute cotton blouse for her daughter using our Batiste Voile and Cotton Lace. We love the detailed tutorial!
 
 I want to show you a great way for finishing hems other than serged/rolled hemming. Some patterns require a hem finish with a serger but what if you don’ t have a serger? You can use this tutorial to finish any ‘to be serged’ hem other than with a serger.

The ‘secret’ is…..binding! I promise you, once you have tried to bind hems you will love it! But promise me, that you will take the time to read this tutorial with PLENTY of time on your hands!

The fabrics at Organic Cotton Plus are 100% organic. They have expanded their lines to include knits a well as all kinds of woven fabrics. If you are looking for high quality organic fabrics this is a good place to start. After I was finished with my project, I was left with piece of fabric that I will use in the warmer weather for a summer tunic. We’ve actually already placed another fabric order as well.

Our Thoughts:  Caroline from SewCanShe.com made adorable Easter dresses for her children using our Lunada Bay Voile.

 

The fabric I picked is Lunada Bay organic cotton voile (so fine and pretty), with a solid version of the same voile for the dress linings.

I really like the Organic Cotton Plus website. It's easy to navigate and there are lots of explanations and descriptions (including this one that explains why Organic fabric is so special) This way you know just what you're getting. Plus the prices are very competitive with low shipping. I shopped around so I know. :)

Our Thoughts:  Janice from Socal Sewing Mom made a really cute summer dress for her daughter using our Lunada Bay Voile fabric - perfect for playdates!

 

I chose some delicious fabric from Organic Cotton Plus - Lunada Bay voile from Cloud 9. Organic fabric - need I say more? Well, I had never sewn with voile. In fact, I don't even think I had ever felt it before. It's a beautiful weight - lightweight, but not so light that it's difficult to sew. It's like a cotton lawn, but a bit lighter weight. I did line the body of this dress using voile as well.
