Elegant Easter Dresses

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. :)

Perfect Playdate Dress

Creation: Perfect Playdate Dress

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.

Nifty Art Supply Organizer

Creation: Elegant Rag Doll 

Fabrics Used: Natural Twill, White Thread, Natural Twill Tape

The Visionary: Erin, HelloSociety Influencer, http://erindollar.com/

Our Thoughts:  Erin, an HelloSociety Influencer made a nifty art supply organizer and some cool coasters using our Natural Twill and Notions. We love em!

 

I was eager to try a DIY project with the Organic Twill - it's a great middleweight fabric, which makes it great for a many different types of DIY projects. I loved experimenting with the Procion Dyes on the twill, the fabric soaked up the dye like a sponge, and it was super easy to create a shibori-inspired design.

A Made for Summer Maxi Dress

Creation:Lime Green Maxi Dress

Fabrics Used: Lime Green Interlock Knit

The Visionary: Suzannah, Create/Enjoy.com

Our Thoughts:  Suzannah at Create/Enjoy.com made a cool summer maxi dress using the Lime Green Interlock from Harmony Art

I've been wanting to incorporate more brights into my wardrobe for aaaaaaages, but it's hard to find the right colors at the fabric stores. I picked this  lime green interlock knit yardage from Organic Cotton Plus and it's   organic, too! It's super nice, much softer than I remember basic interlock knits being from when I was a kid and my mom made my doll clothes out of them. ;)

Pretty Floral Dress

Creation:  Pretty Floral Dress

Fabrics UsedEvelyn & Janette Twill

The Visionary: Kelly, CutCutSew

Our Thoughts:  Kelly at CutCutSew.com made a pretty summer dress that's just right for an elegant garden party.

Browsing the site, I immediately gravitated towards the organic cotton sateen- there were lots of great prints and solids but I was drawn to these pretty flowers. It is super soft and drapey, and I decided it had to be an Anna Dress.

Hand Stamped Maxi Dress

Creation: Hand stamped maxi dress

Fabrics Used: Natural Stretch Jersey

The Visionary: Justine, SewCountryChick.com

Our Thoughts:  Justine at SewCountryChick used her creativity to make a unique sundress and it looks great.

A couple of years ago, I bought some wooden stamps at The Rose Bowl Flea Market.I got a few yards of beautiful natural colored organic cotton with lycra from Organic Cotton Plus. It was an undyed, organic cotton jersey with just a hint of lycra, in a perfect weight for dresses.  I absolutely love the quality. Being organic, as well as cotton, it was a perfect canvas to hand dye and stamp. Polyester blends don’t take dye very well. This was the perfect opportunity to finally try out my Indian fabric stamp!
