Indiesew.com | Cloudless Fabric Batch

The days are gradually getting warmer here in Boulder and we couldn't be happier to launch a batch of fabrics that we're really excited to sew right now. When it starts to get hot, all I want to wear are natural fibers and cool colors. Our 19th fabric batch, Cloudless, checks both of those boxes with five airy fabrics. And we're obsessed with every single one:   Green Floral Cotton Voile This . . .

Fabric Batch #018: Sprig

Indiesew.com | Fabric Batch #018: Sprig

My last fabric souring trip to LA was one that I'll always remember. Three other industry ladies ( Gabriela ,  Kelli , and Leslie ) all joined me to help hunt for overstock fabric, talk shop, and connect in person on the overnight trip. The short jaunt felt more like vacation than work and I left feeling inspired, motivated, and really lucky to call these ladies my friends. What's even better is . . .

Fabric Batch #017: Texture

Indiesew Fabric Batch | Texture

A few weeks ago, Leslie from  Threadbear and I traveled to LA together for an overnight trip. I was excited to reconnect and show her what the LA Fashion District and  overstock fabric were all about. When I source fabric in LA, I typically travel alone, in one day. But having another apparel sewist and pattern designer on my sourcing trip was an incredible asset. And this fabric batch, Texture, . . .

Fabric Batch #016: Sketch

Indiesew Fabric | Batch #016: Sketch

When we sent out our 2017 Customer Survey  there were a few surprising (to me) requests that trended from this community. One of those? Many of you asked for more high-contrast black and white fabrics. It's not typically a color palette I'm drawn to, but after sourcing our sixteenth fabric batch, I now see what all the fuss is about. Black and white motifs are strong; they make a statement. And . . .

EDIT: Orchard is mostly sold out at this time. We'll work to restock! Our fifteenth fabric batch is here! Orchard is a collection of five fabrics that feature pops of apple red, indigo blues, and soft creams.

Introducing Fabric Batch #013: Harvest Moon

Indiesew Fabric Batch #013: Harvest Moon

I’ve been antsy to release this particular fabric batch since these textiles landed on my doorstep. I just love amber and navy mixed with a rich emerald green. These four fabrics combined are the recipe for some lovely handmade clothing. And, in fact, the showstopper of this particular fabric batch was a last minute, out-of-the-corner-of-my-eye find. I saw the auburn red color peeking out from a . . .

Introducing Fabric Batch #012: Electric Ave

Indiesew Fabric Batch | Electric Ave

If you hadn’t noticed, we love a black and white color palette here at Indiesew. The two colors are neutral, timeless, and easy to mix with other shades. Throw in a dynamic shade of fuchsia and you have a stimulating color palette perfect for a night on the town. Meet our newest fabric batch, Electric Ave. It’s named as such partially because I couldn’t get that 1980’s song out of my head while . . .
