choose fabric for your project

I keep a curated selection of high-quality woven linens and organic cottons in stock for Custom Made-to-Measure garments. I vet these materials for versatility, comfort, and easy of care.

When I acquire new options, my priority is to maintain an exciting selection without sacrificing ecological and social responsibility.

Choose any of these for your custom clothing project. I'll make recommendations based on your priorities and the details of your Project.

Linen

Use linen for pants, shirts, dresses, light jackets, undergarments… almost anything, really. Machine washable (cold) and fast drying.

 

Linen is one of the most ancient fabrics. It's made from the stems of the flax plant. Flax is a fast-growing and ecologically gentle crop. The fibers that make up linen are long and hollow, providing excellent insulation in both warm and cool weather.

BROADCLOTH

Broadcloth is a medium/light-weight plain-woven cloth. This broadcloth is uncommonly soft and luxurious, and very versatile: this is my go-to cloth for many designs. Easy to care for; a pleasure to wear. Great for blouses, tunics, mild-season skirts and pants, and colder-season undergarments. 100% GOTS-certified Organic Cotton.

BATISTE

Batiste is a very light-weight plain-woven cloth. It's slightly sheer; if used in a single layer, it lets the light through for a peek-a-boo hint of what's beneath. This batiste feels delicate, but it's surprisingly sturdy. Lovely for summer blouses, tunics, and undergarments, handkerchiefs, decorative seam bindings, and underlinings for heavier-cloth cotton or linen garments. 100% GOTS-certified Organic Cotton.
