cotton & steel rayon frock tour

There are exciting things afoot for garment sewers thanks to the masterminds at Cotton & Steel. Perhaps you’ve already seen their gorgeous cotton lawns and double gauze, but now …there are RAYONS! That’s right, new rayon fabrics, and they’re beautiful.

I’m honored to be included in the official Frock Fabric Tour, along with some other amazing sewing wizards, to help kick off this new collection. I can’t wait to see what everyone makes!

Here’s the tour schedule, along with everyone’s details, if you’d like to follow along:

Here’s a peek of the fabric I’ll be using in the tour – Look at that drape!

Bringing garment weight fabrics to the Quilting Industry is kind of a huge deal for sewers like me (i.e. obsessed with quilting cottons but isn’t really a quilter). I’m a Cotton & Steel super fan girl, so needless to say I’m super excited to share my project with you on Saturday! I’m dying to see what the other ladies are making, too…

Stay tuned 🙂

  • I kind of want all those fabrics…

    Can’t wait to see your dress tomorrow!!!

  • RAYON!!! I’m so glad!!! I’m getting tired of quilting cottons. I love the prints, but there’s just not the fantastic drape like rayon has! Can’t wait to see your project!

  • Can’t wait!!!

  • Evie

    This is so awesome! I love all of their prints, but quilting cottons really aren’t suitable for a lot of the sorts of things I like to make. Can’t wait to see what you make!

  • So excited for these! Can’t wait to see what you make!

  • Very cool! Those fabrics are so delightfully lovely (the black and grey design jumps out at me in particular). It will be oodles of fun to see what you create for this fun blog tour.

  • I am so excited for the rayons! I love Cotton & Steel designs too, so I am over the moon about them releasing garment fabrics!

  • I am excited about their new fabrics, especially the rayon and lawn.

  • Stephanie Thorpe

    Oh yay! I love rayon and I love all of the Cotton and Steel fabrics that I’ve seen on your blog so this is perfect!

    How exciting! But pace yourself…no need to make those wrists act up! :o) (and I’m totally ignoring my own advice, pftt!)
