This is a classic box from previous months. To read more about the theme and the fabrics, click here.
Named Clothing caught my eye a few years back because their designs are so fashion forward. I never realized the Finns were so chic! But now that I know this, I find myself scouring their website looking for inspiration.
This month, I found it with the Pulmu High-Waisted Pencil Skirt. Not your average pencil skirt, it has a belt and side slits. But what really got me was the triangle insert instead of side seams. Just such a clever design detail that adds visual intrigue and also a little bit of a sewing challenge (something I always seek in my sewing projects - I love to learn new skills).
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner
What you should know (or desire to learn): Inserting an invisible zipper, inserting a lining, understitching, sewing darts, hemming
- Fiery Red Viscose Flannel - The solid color will show off the style lines and the flexibility of the fabric will move with you for your comfort. Go bold, and go red!
- Grayed Jade Stretch Polyester Crepe - With a unique, pebbly texture, there is some visual depth to the fabric to lift it out fo the ordinary.
- Black Polyester Twill/Raw Hide Stretch Faux Leather - A solid black twill for the main front and back panels, but a stretch faux leather for the sides. Pretty rock and roll, right?
Also in this box: a coordinating zipper, coordinating charmeuse satin lining fabric, matching thread, a sewing machine needle, two D-ring closures, and two sets of hook/eye closures. If you order the faux leather option, you will also receive a leather sewing machine needle. We have also included interfacing to stabilize the waistband and the invisible zipper. All you have to provide is the sewing machine.
