Women sewing organic clothing can make a difference
Sew my Mexican Dress from organic fibers for environmentally
Are you a 'green' gal or a planet-loving lady? Chances are, you may
have been frustrated by the price tags on organic clothing. For myself,
I love to dress in a manner that has the lowest possible impact on the
environment, but I'm not in a financial position to pay $40 for a pair
of socks or $500 for a dress. Happily, I've found some good sources for
affordable organic fabric yardage that makes paying a few extra cents
a yard worth it for eco-conscious crafters and seamstresses.
My Mexican Dress easily lends itself to the use of organic cotton,
hemp, linen, or tencel. You want to find a lightweight fabric with a
soft drape and easy movement. You can go completely natural with an
undyed fabric, or make your dress of a beautiful color of your choice.
If you demand organics, this will become your favorite summer sundress!
Organic cotton and hemp are the two fibers most commonly used in
creating what seamstresses call fashion fabrics - in other words, cloth
you make clothing from.
