Have you seen the ML Marsh Collection: Organic Designer Fabrics?
Yes, we're making a big deal about the ML Marsh Collection: Organic Designer Fabrics, but there's a reason for that: we're excited! These are beautiful fabrics, created around a core palette of winter-inspired colors, and they will invigorate your sewing options. Created with designers and small businesses in mind, but there's absolutely nothing preventing home sewists from taking advantage of the offering as well. (I certainly plan to!)
Just looking at the fabrics is inspiring -- I want to make my son a raglan-sleeved shirt from the Espresso/Charcoal Stripe and the Espresso 1x1 Rib Knit, and he will undoubtedly try to convince me to make a pair of sweats using the Espresso French Terry as well. He likes to match, that boy of mine! And the Cranberry is such a vibrant, intense color that I have to make something nice for myself; I'm considering a very simple scarf like this one but a bit wider and possibly with a nice design on it too. They're easy enough to make that I could even do something seasonal if I felt like it -- snowflakes, maybe. I know ML Marsh particularly likes the Ribbed Thermal because it "does not look like long underwear," but I'm still considering making a set of longjohns for my mom out of the Burnt Umber Ribbed Thermal -- it's a gorgeous fabric and color, and I think it would be wonderful used for warm winter clothes, baby blankets, and other basics. (That said, click on the image above and see ML Marsh's layered skirt using Embers Ribbed Thermal -- I may not come up with creative designs like that, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate them!)
We should have a preview of the spring/summer 2011 ML Marsh Collection in February -- you won't want to miss seeing what her fertile mind comes up with!
