Sewing Challenge: Black Square Mesh

Hey y'all, we've got a new challenge to bring you!

We're always having conversations about how versatile the black square mesh fabric is.

It's got amazing stretch and recovery and makes for great airflow on athletic makes like Colleen's:

but it's surprisingly not that see-through! I made a dress and didn't even feel weird about wearing it all over last summer.

Brainstorming all the ideas for summer made the team realize all their plans for the black mesh! And so why not have a little sewing challenge?

How does it work?

Participating sewists have made something that shows off the versatility of the fabric and you get to vote for the sewist who's make you want to win!

I love Rachel’s the neckline is awesome and def so i would sew myself.


They're all so great, I love what the team came up with! It's so hard to pick a favorite.

Since I have to pick one one I'm going to go with Daisy.
