Sew Fearless Box - August

*** Available to order from June 15 to July 14. Ships on August 3***
Slacks are defined as trousers for casual wear. While we don’t hear that term much these days, we think it is time to embrace it again. The Free Range Slacks pattern is as easy to wear as its name. You will feel free to roam in the comfort of a stylish, elastic high waist when you wear these pants. Although they were designed with linen in mind, these pants are so comfortable that we think you will want to make them in a multitude of fabrics and wear them all year long in any season.
There are two options - a tapered leg version and a straight, cropped version. Both have an elastic high waist, side panels, front pockets that are topstitched in place from behind, and an optional back patch pocket(s). The tapered legs look great rolled up so the finished garment measurements show rolled and unrolled measurements and the instructions include options for French and flat-fell leg seams. More...

  • Light Gray Brussels Washer Linen - It's no secret that we love Robert Kaufman's Brussels Washer Linen. The combination of linen and viscose creates a fabric that is soft and silky, with a gorgeous semi-fluid drape. This yarn-dyed version in light gray has a lovely heathered look that adds depth and texture. The neutral color allows you play with the color of your tops and shoes to create all sorts of different looks. Go bright for a bold summery look or stay neutral for a serene beachy feel. The possibilities are up to you! 
  • Dusty Rose 6 oz Twill - People often think of twill as a sturdy weave, like denim, but with the right fiber, it can be light and soft. This cotton twill is medium weight but is supple and thin, making it a perfect choice for these slacks. Plus, the dusty rose is a gorgeous transitional color to take your handmade wardrobe from summer to fall. Not too bright, but definitely not a neutral, you can make a pair of pants that are as unique as you are!
  • Army Green Crinkle Cotton Poplin - This poplin is all about the texture! A creped surface, this cotton looks like silk noil, but without the dry clean only care. In a utilitarian army green, this fabric will make for a gorgeous pair of slacks. The poplin has a little crisper drape than the other two fabrics, which makes it well suited for the wide leg version of the pants, but like most cottons, it will soften up with washing so you can be sure your slacks will be oh-so-comfortable!
