tidal lace fabric giveaway

Several months ago we introduced the Tidal Lace fabric collection designed by Kim Andersson. Well, we are happy to inform you that those fabrics are now available for purchase in shops. Kim is hosting a generous fabric give-away, read at the bottom of the post for details.

Tidal Lace was inspired by intricate lace and tide pool life and were woven together to create Kim’s first fabric collection for Windham Fabrics. You can view the whole collection here.

Some of the fabrics have already been sewn up in several Oliver + S patterns, here in a Roller Skate Dress and a Pinwheel Slip Dress.
