I just have to say this. I love that Erin proudly uses quilting cotton to make dresses. I have seen many sewing sites where either this is sternly frowned upon or sheepishness or embarrassment is expressed by the seamstress who has boldly dared to make a dress out of quilting cotton. This is ridiculous. Just because it is called quilting cotton doesn’t mean that’s all you can do with it. No other fabric comes in so many different colors and prints, it’s easy to sew and it’s comfortable to wear. Why wouldn’t you want to wear it?
Sewing is all about freedom – about doing your own thing and wearing what you want to wear. Most people who sew understand this but, just as with any other area of interest, there are a few people who are all about rules and who mistake their own preferences for rules. The rest of us need to learn to ignore these people.
