Article says they are hard to get, but not hard for us to use for sewing inspiration!

I've really love this polka dot knit (weird because when it showed up in the mail I thought I'd just use it for practice fabric!) - so much so that I've just begun recreating this cowl neck tee to change some of the details I'm less than fond of.

I'm inspired to sew beautiful tee shirts for my own wearing. I also like the idea of locally sourced fabric . San Francisco Pickwick and Waller make theirs for the ready to wear market using fabric woven in CA and with high quality details.
