Suggested Fabrics
Mid-weight woven fabrics such as linen, cotton, rayon, viscose, etc. The straight shape of this dress lends itself well to fabrics with a bit less drape, meaning it works great with denim and canvas, too.

Notions
Thread in a matching color, basting thread, thread in a contrasting color for topstitching (optional, but excellent with denim).

Herbal Inspiraton

Stellaria media is the botanical name of chickweed, a juicy edible plant that grows all over the world in disturbed soils. Stellaria’s flowers have thin white petals that radiate out from the center, looking very much like a star.

In my arid garden in Montana, you had to look close to see the tiny stars. Stellaria plants there were sprawled out flat on the ground, often hidden under the edges of a head of lettuce or in the rows of potatoes.  In Rome, the plants grow knee-high with fat leaves and the flowers are nearly as big as a dime.

Stellaria is a plant that’s just as much at home in the garden as she is growing between the cracks in a sidewalk. She’s out there, adding a little cosmic sparkle, whether anyone notices her or not.
