There is something special about hand stitching clothes. First of all there is no noise, no rattling of a sewing machine. Then there is the slowness of it, what is the hurry anyway. Also I can sit outside in the sunshine while stitching and hear the birds sing or watch my children play.
Here I used an organic cotton/bamboo mix jersey fabric from Organic Textile Company.The pattern for the dress is from Alabama Studio Sewing + Design.
