Today we have a guest blog from Emilie and Adrienne, owners of locally owned LittleDipper.co fabric company talking about designing fabric for your sewing projects. They made a beautiful E.S.P. Dress using their Preston Stripes. They used poplin for their ESP Dress. Poplin, most commonly used with cotton batiks and favored by quilters, is known for its crisp hand and stiff drape.
We are a fabric company based out of Berkeley, CA. Because we believe that fashion and style have no minimum or maximum size or a perfect shape, we are super excited about Decades of Style. We love that Decades patterns offer a full range of sizes. Some of us have curves and some of us don't and all that makes us is women. Whether you are a size 0 or a size 20, the best way to walk through life feeling like a million bucks is for your clothes to fit the skin you are in, as it is! Decades Everyday patterns fit great and allow you to make adjustments based on your curves. Hmm...clothes that fit. What a concept!
We (LittleDipper.co) are a fabric company, but, we are so much more than that. We are supporters of beauty and style and creative choice. LittleDipper.co fabric is created by independent artists. Any fabric created through LittleDipper.co, has been selected by you......our fabric loving consumers. Artist submit their designs to us, we curate and present them to you, and you decide which designs you want to buy. We provided the fabric, the patterns and the inspiration and let you make (or have made) what you want. Haven’t you ever seen a dress and thought, “ I would totally love a table runner in that fabric”; or a pair of curtains and thought, “Oooh, that design would look great on a pair of pants”? At LittleDipper.co, we want to provide you with the flexibility to create what you want, when you want.
So, how does it work? I'm glad you asked... Design of any kind, whether it be fashion or furniture, only allow us to purchase what they deem “in”, or “out”, charging top dollar and only discounting items that don’t sell. Incentivizing us to waste money on things we really don't want or need. Unlike the mainstream retail market that only discounts the unwanted, or less desirable products; We produce limited edition, small runs of the highest quality, and award the best price to the early bird, who make a purchase within the first 7 days of a design going live on our site. Once a fabric design has been presented on LittleDipper.co, it is available for pre-order, and pre-orders are everything! The magic number is 300. An artist's design must be popular enough to get at least 300 pre-ordered yards, before we will produce it. If you pre-order a design and it doesn't make it to 300, your credit card will not be charged.
We so appreciate the opportunity to say hello to the Decades of Style community and hope to encourage a trend towards great fitting clothes, and a super stylish lifestyle, one yard at a time!
