I was going to use this lovely voile fabric to make a button up shirt for me, because this was the perfect lightweight fabric for a summer shirt, but I ended up using it to make this vintage baby dress and bonnet that I've been wanting to make for my baby.

Fabrics Used: A variety of fabrics HERE

The Visionary: Callie Jensen, Calliejensen.com

Our Thoughts:  Callie from CallieJensen.com used Organic Cotton Plus sustainable fabrics as part of her thesis entitled "Made in ________". We think she did a fantastic job and wish her a wonderful career.

 

After World War One, there was a push for sustainable clothing development, not because it was “in fashion,” but because resources were scarce. The repair and reuse of items became a necessity, and fabrics were rationed just as were many other supplies. At the time, grains, flour, and plant growing supplements were delivered in cotton-linen bags that were durable and tightly woven as to transport the various kinds of feed. For women like my great-great-grandmother, who lived on farms, this created an incredible resource. The bags often came in friendly floral patterns which made them desirable and easy to repurpose into clothing. By the end of World War II, increases in mass production in the food and fashion industries created a depreciation in quality that persists today.

Creation: Elegant Easter Dresses

Fabrics Used: Lunada Bay Voile

The Visionary: Caroline, SewCanShe.com

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. :)

Fabrics Used: Lunada Bay Voile

The Visionary: Janice, SoCal Sewing Mom

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.
