Sew Indulgent Box - May

*** Available to order from March15 to April14. Ships on May 2 ***

Say hello to Bobbi, a button-down skirt or pinafore that’s both classic and bang on trend. Endlessly versatile, it looks so different depending on the fabric you pick and the details you add. Go utility chic with a choice of three pockets, optional flaps and belt loops – or leave them off for an understated look.

It has a flattering shape thanks to the curved fitted waistband, princess seams at the back and slim-look bib on the pinafore. Bobbi will be a go-to garment in your me-made wardrobe. More...

Pinafore Fabric

  • Mustard Calligraphy Canvas - We seem to be on a painterly kick this month, and each box has an artistic print in it. This print is made up of large-scale brushstrokes, gray ink on a mustard background. The canvas has a supple drape and will sew up beautifully into this pinafore 
  • Oatmeal Diego Jacquard - Sometimes, you just need a natural tan hue to tie your wardrobe together. This oatmeal fabric is calming just to look at and evokes beach weddings and summer nights. It's similar to the black jacquard in our Sew Curvy Box but heavier weight and with a wood grain-like texture, both of which will work extremely well with this pattern. And because it's a neutral, it will layer on top of practically anything.
  • Cadet Blue Velveteen - Who can resist blue velvet? It's got an entire song written about it (and a movie for the Lynch fans out there). So why not create a blue velvet pinafore? The cadet blue, a shade close to classic blue jeans, is muted and soft. And speaking of soft, the velveteen has a hand that is lush and densely piled. It will be an indulgent pinafore to be sure.

Skirt Fabric

  • Burgundy 6W Corduroy - Wide wale corduroy is making a comeback, but it will always have a 70s feel to it. Especially this one, which comes in an earthy red hue, straight out of the Nixon era. The large wale also works as a stripe, which helps to show off the A-line nature of this skirt. So pick this fabric, put on some Nancy Sinatra and some boots and get your groove on.
  • Folk Horse Coral Canvas - Especially in this time, it's important to have some whimsy in your life. So why not in your wardrobe. This unbleached canvas is printed with an intricate floral design that harkens right back to medieval tapestry. It even has a horse on it! With bright coral colors and deep greens, it's fun and cheery, and a playful fabric choice for the skirt 
  • Indigo Railroad Denim - A yarn-dyed denim print with vertical railroad stripes is a perfect match for this pattern. It shows off the A-line of the skirt, complements the vertical button placket, and hey, it's just a classic. A denim skirt is a wardrobe staple so why not take it up a notch with a print?
    Also in this Box: Matching thread (for both fabrics), topstitching thread, overall buckles, 18 buttons, lining fabric, fusible interfacing, and a sewing machine needle
