Are you a jeans and tee girl like Alex from My Sew Bliss?  I am for sure!  I love how she took her usually uniform up a notch with this gorgeous new blouse.

She used the Brenda pattern from Made for Mermaids and our Mustard Floral Stretch Crepe for a top that's both comfortable and oh so pretty!  Head to her blog for all the details.

Year Round Love of Double Brushed Polyester with Rachel of Handcrafted by RED
Year Round Love of Double Brushed Polyester with Rachel of Handcrafted by RED

June 19, 2020

Hi RCF crew, it’s Rachel from Handcrafted by RED here again with some love for double brushed poly (DBP) and why I think it makes a great summer fabric. I’ve seen a lot of people comment that it’s too warm for summer and it’s a favorite in our house so I wanted to share a few thoughts about why we love it so much, even in hot weather. It’s true that polyester, a manufactured substrate, isn’t as inherently breathable as natural fibers like cotton or bamboo. For that reason, I don’t love using DBP (or its single brushed counterpart SBP) for fitted warm-weather garments. However, it has amazing drape and is beautifully flowy, and has more stability than other drapey fabrics like rayon spandex. Because of this, it doesn’t “grow” while you’re wearing it or stretch out of shape over time. As an added bonus, it doesn’t get wrinkled or pilly from washing or wearing, either - it’s a great fabric choice for traveling!
