It's Only Natural

You know that idea Judy and I had to combine knitting and sewing, starting with natural fibers? We thought it would be helpful to create sample outfits complete with jewelry ... just like you see in department stores. This is the beginning of one outfit that will be on display at the Grove after June 1st with all materials available for purchase. The free pattern for this 100% Belgian linen top is located at Coiled. (When at all possible, we'll be using free patterns to minimize costs and simple ones to start with). Judipatuti is sewing a linen skirt and silk camisole to go with this cropped top. We are naming this collective endeavor, our "It's Only Natural" line. Can't wait to share more as this project unfolds!


  1. That is so beautiful! Can't wait to see the whole outfit. You guys are just full of inspiration.

  2. I love this top, may have to move it to the top of the queue. It's so, well, natural. A nice summery necklace, maybe with beads....

  3. My great idea when it comes to knitting and sewing? A special line of "Underthings" to go with our fantastic knits.

    Right now I need luscious scoop-necked T of pima cotton in a medium celery to go under my February Lady Sweater. I have one knit shirt that is OK but I would LOVE to have one whose lines really work with the sweater, that keeps my arms from itching, and is the right color to accent my knit without overpowering it.

    Underthings - the Next Great Knitting Accessory! Anyway - your lovely post reminded me of this recent rant! Can't wait to see more Naturals!

  4. Can't wait to see Judy's new booth at The Grove!
