My seester had a birthday a few weeks ago, and I’d been waiting until she received the package to post these pictures. The ivory fabric is organic bamboo and if you could feel how soft and lovely this fabric is you would run out and buy it yourself. Elli really loved this birdy fabric so I knew it needed to make it’s way into her birthday present.
This one is one of my own designs. It is a variation of this top that I made for myself recently. You know, it does make me feel bad that you don’t have any way of making this. I love to see stuff on blogs, go out and buy the pattern, and make it myself. The problem of course with women’s wear is ideally the pattern would have multiple sizes (how does one do this without having a legion of spare bodies in various sizes?) and would be easy to print or purchase. I just have no idea where to even start with this. So those of you who keep asking for the patterns for my tops, speak up and let me know if you have any ideas on how I could get these patterns out.
*Although I would much rather support the small fabric store or Etsy seller than the big box stores for my sewing supplies, I end up at JoAnn’s ALOT due to the fact that they carry so much stuff. So I’m thrilled they carry organic cotton. The price bump ($14.99/yd minus 40% with one those awesome coupons) was totally worth it. And let’s be truly honest here, the organic offerings out there are really pathetic. And boring. I would love to be wrong about this, so send me your favorite organic fabrics and prove me wrong!
