Linen (medium weight) and cotton voile (sheer and light weight) simple box fit stand out tops.  Inspired by the Central and South American huipil, the design is meant to display the pattern of the fabric.  With my patterns I find it best to design simple shapes that fit many shapes.  The cotton voile sheer fabrics are dyed using different natural dye methods and then blockprinted, each print individually stamped onto the fabric.  Screenprinting is used on the linen blend, and on one of the sheer tops. Only two of each fabric is created into a top. The natural dyes tend to fade with time, but the ink used is light fast so you see a life to your piece. Cold water hand washing, line dry, is suggested for the sheer tops, but the linen can handle a gentle cycle in the laundry if you like.
