Classic Sew Fearless Box - July

*** Available to order from May 15 to June 14. Ships after July 2***

The Lou Box Top is a versatile, loose fitting top with two neckline options and three hem options, for a total of six different silhouettes. Designed with beginners in mind, the steps are very easy to follow, using the most basic techniques and the loose fit of the design requires minimal fitting. It's a great project for beginners looking to get their feet wet and for more experienced sewists who want to add some quick-to-make basics to their wardrobe. This pattern also has two expansion packs which you can get separately through Sew DIY for a sleeved or dress version. More...

Pattern:Lou Box Top from Sew DIY *Note: this pattern will be a printed pdf copy*

What you should know (or desire to learn): Finishing a neckline with bias tape, attaching a shank button, topstitching (optional for pocket), hemming lightweight fabrics

Fabric Options: Read more about the fabric options here.

  • Forest Tulips Rayon Lawn - This fabric is all about the print, as most Cotton + Steel lawns are. Dark green tulips pair with polka dots on a white background, accented with gold lines. It's the perfect print for fall, with warm tones and light hues. The rayon lawn is also light and cool, making it a great option for transitional weather, and the drape will soften the square lines of the pattern for a relaxed and flowing look. Paired with the cardigans for last month (the turmeric will match perfectly!) and you have a killer combo!
  • Maple Viscose Linen Slub - We've been all about this color - a muted pink similar to dusty rose or red clay - and we think it's perfect color for the autumn season. Plus, who doesn't think about maple in the fall?? The fabric itself is sort of the lovechild of a rayon challis and a crepe, combining the cool hand of your favorite challis with a slightly nubbly texture you get with crepe. The texture will really be on display in this top and will feel like an added surprise whenever you wear it!
