Soft, Light Linens

Linen really is wonderful for all year, but truly excels in the hot summer.

Whether you're strolling city streets or hiking up a mountain, linen will keep you cool, comfortable, and looking great!

Poly Charmeuse

 is a great alternative to silk for an easy-care garment. It also makes a great lining, and you know Michele's motto: no boring linings!

As we look to where and how our fabrics are produced, we know you care about sustainability as much as we do. Our poly fabrics are designer dead stock. You get a good price AND give them a second life.

How can you resist bold, gorgeous prints like these?

Ghastlies are Back!

We love the creepy, vintage style of Alexander Henry's Ghastlie prints. 

If you like Edward Gorey's strange and dark art style, you'll find much to admire in the Ghastlie prints.

Friday Fun Fact!

Let's talk about one of my favorite seam finishes, the flat-felled seam!

Flat-felled seams were the typical choice throughout history for underwear and shirts, for good reasons:

Flat-felled seams are smooth - there's no raw edges or bumpy seams to chafe against the skin.

They're durable - with no raw fabric to fray, they help a garment withstand constant laundering and wear.

These days, well-made shirts still use flat-felled seams, but mostly you'll see them on jeans.

To sew a flat-felled seam:

- Sew the seam as usual.
- Trim away half of one seam allowance.
- Wrap the untrimmed seam around the trimmed one.
- Press flat to the side.
- Stitch through all the layers, close to the fold.

You can learn more about how to make flat-felled seams and more in our Beautiful Seams and Hems class!
