Botanica Tinctoria is known for its beautiful sewing patterns and unusual naturally dyed embroidery threads. The threads are linen and luxurious eri silk both mill and handspun. We’ve teamed up with designer Rachel MacHenry to showcase our handwoven Kala Cotton with Botanica Tinctoria’s pattern download and embroidery embellishment. We are offering 3 options: 2 elegant tops and a warm indigo wrap.
Option 1 Ruched Top Bundle includes Botanica Tinctoria pattern, Ultra lightweight 200s Kala ecru (undyed) cotton with Natural Eri millspun silk thread. This is a beautiful lightweight top in organic cotton.
Option 2 Ruched Top Bundle includes Botanica Tinctoria pattern, lightweight 40s indigo light blue dyed Kala cotton with mid-tone Indigo Eri millspun silk thread. This top features a luminous mid-tone indigo blue in a lightweight Kala cotton. The indigo bundle fabric is discounted 20%.
Option 3 Indigo Wrap Bundle includes Botanica Tinctoria pattern, handspun medium shade indigo and linen/kala cotton chambray fabric, naturally dyed button and contrasting linen thread Terra Cotta. This pattern makes a cozy wrap from our heavier handspun kala cotton indigo fabric with fabric accents of handwoven linen/cotton chambray.
How it works
Choose a bundle option and we will assemble the fabric and threads and ship to you from Botanical Colors, Seattle WA.

Rachel is also offering access to a “how to” video showing the stitching techniques that are covered in these patterns to include ruching, stem stitch, couching sashiko stitch and satin stitch.
