Women sewing organic clothing can make a difference

Sew my Mexican Dress from organic fibers for environmentally friendly fashion

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.

 

With careful choosing, you can find an organic cloth that is soft and lightweight enough for creating my Mexican Dress. As demand for organics grows, we can look forward to seeing more and more choices being made available to us.

NearSea Naturals, Inc. currently offers one of the best retail selections of organic fabrics. You can request swatches from the company to feel for yourself which fabric you feel would be most appropriate for making your Mexican Dress. These three look good to me:

I have found the people at NearSea Naturals to be very friendly and helpful, and if you do a lot of sewing and like to buy organic, you will enjoy visiting their website.

I plan to add further good organic clothing fabric sources to this page as I find them. If you know of a good retailer who carries a fabric that you feel would be appropriate for making my Mexican Dress, I'd love it if you'd drop me a line.
