Batik Week

Batik Week! 

Whether crisp cotton or silky rayon, batik prints are irresistible. This week we got in a group of each, and their rich colors and fun designs are just dreamy. Take a look at the spectacular fabrics made with this traditional wax-resist dyeing process.

Rayon batiks have a soft, flowing drape. Breathable rayon fibers make a fabric that's cool to the touch and easy to wear.

Cotton batiks are crisp and light. Garments made from cotton batik are delightful for hot summer weather - they never cling!

 Are you seeing all the great shares on our Instagram lately? 
Get inspired to sew!
Treadle student Bryanna @bry4andafter made this cute dress in our T-Shirt Dress class! We love the sunny yellow paired with the floral skirt. If you missed this class last time, we will be holding it again in June, and there is still space available!
We reposted this cute skirt with great pockets from @tippermakes, made in one of our great linen blends. She shared this as part of Me-Made May. There's still time to show us your me-made projects! Tag us or write us an email.
Right at our own place, a project from one of our newest Treadlettes, Grace. She shows off this cute pleated skirt she sewed from our organic cotton. We always try to keep a broad array of display garments in the store to help you visualize your projects!
