Alabama Chanin - Sustainable Style
Whenever I think of Alabama stitching my heart skips a bit. The reverse applique technique could not make clothes more beautiful and unique. The process of stitching is long and hard but certainly worth it! The sustainable style in the title implies that recycled cotton jersey is used, although I bought some more jersey to try this. To be honest I've been preparing to do this since last spring, so I may be lucky this one?!
The genius behind Alabama stitching is Natalie Chanin, a former costume designer and fashion stylist, who is the founder and head designer of Alabama Chanin.
I've set my eyes on the coats. I would love to have them in my wardrobe!
