Lavendar, Shirtwaist | Warp Weft Heirloom
Warp and Weft Heirloom collection is 19 yarn dyed woven cotton fabrics designed by Alexia Abegg of Ruby Star Society. This is a follow up collection to her very popular Warp and Weft collection. In designing Warp and Weft, Alexia made an artistic shift, leaning heavily on color and geometric design rather that her usual drawing, painting and block printing. She is fascinated by the way colored threads blend and intermingle in Warp and Weft and we really look forward to this collection for quilts and apparel.

We recommend that you pre-wash and dry your fabric the same way you plan on washing your finished project. That way it will already be done shrinking in case of an accidental trip through the dryer.
We tear the fabric to make sure it's cut on the straight of grain, because of this, we make sure to add about an inch extra to the cut.
