Run For The Border Print

If you've been following along as the Brand Ambassador for Sew Much Fabric builds her curated wardrobe, you'll remember the white and tangelo wrap tops.  She has added a fun embroidered border print denim (Sold Out) skirt to the mix.  Perfect start to a summer wardrobe!  Thanks Dorcas!!!

With temps pushing 90 in Houston our coveted, albeit short-lived, spring is quickly departing. The good news? Bring on the summer sewing! My first make is my uber-favorite Grainline Studios Moss skirt made with this fabulous embroidered border denim now in stock at Sew Much Fabric.

I have a closet full of shirts that look great with this multi-colored floral embroidery. The colors are so vibrant and rich.

I used cotton shirting for my pockets and fly shield and topstitching was easy on this denim, as it is on the lighter end of the denim weight scale.

And of course, this summer skirt is special enough to deserve a lining. I used cotton broadcloth and a decorative stitch hem.

I love wearing this skirt and it has already become a staple in my wardrobe! The embroidered denim (Sold Out) and both the white and orange 11 oz. rayon knits are all available at Sew Much Fabric. So summer, welcome to Houston! I'm ready for you.
