How to Style Prints: Ft. Our BF Exclusive Cotton Twills

        Allow us to introduce our BF Exclusive Printed Cotton Twills! Bursting with bright, playful designs, we are so excited to spot you out and about wearing these sewn up in all sorts of fabulous makes!
        Made from 100% cotton, we love how this twill sews up so easily thanks to its beautifully crisp drape and stable twill weave. At 8.5 ounces, this versatile midweight cotton has more heft than a shirting fabric and a softer hand than traditional denim or canvas. We think it would be the ideal match for a wide range of projects including pants, light jackets, jumpsuits, and accessories.

       To help you better picture what these prints would look like in your wardrobe, we've matched them with some of our favourite indie sewing patterns. Check out our pattern pairings and how we'd style them down below!

After a more subtle way to wear prints? A printed tote bag is quick to sew up and the perfect way to introduce a little bit of print to your wardrobe. These prints pack a punch and will totally pop against any kind of solid coloured me-mades! Shown here in our Checkerboard Printed Cotton Twill in Baby Blue & Ivory, our Groovy Blooms Printed Cotton Twill in Oasis, and our Mini Flower Power Printed Cotton Twill in Rainbow & Multi.

        For an extra added personal touch, stitch on one of our new Self Care Labels! Created in collaboration with Seattle based artist Alex Smyth, these labels celebrate slowing down, taking a breath, and being kind to yourself! Featuring cute critters and affirmations of self-love, these bright & colourful labels are sure to put a smile on your face every time you put on one of your me-mades.
