Leah Duncan's new organic batiste collection has arrived just in time for spring sewing! Floret is a focused collection of bold yet wearable florals in Leah's distinctive hand. A light and semi-sheer cotton, batiste is ideal for airy blouses and flowing skirts. Cobalt blue, bright orange and black are combined with soft cloud blue and shell pink creating a sophisticated palette perfect for warm weather sewing. We can see beautiful tops, shifts and even pajamas made from this soft breezy fabric.
