Fabric Options: Read more about the fabric options here.

  • Black Medium Weight Cotton Spandex Jersey - This fabric is about as classic as you get with a knit. In a medium weight, it has just the right amount of heft while still being soft and supple. And the black color is simple and timeless. This is a knit top or dress that you'll be able to wear year in, year out, and look elegant and stylish every time.
  • Seafoam Bamboo Cotton French Terry - We love, love, love this bamboo french terry. We've used it in our own sewing as well as in our February Sweatpants Box to make Hudson Pants. The bamboo makes the fabric incredibly soft and light. In a bright blue that verges on turquoise, you get a dress that is bright, cheery, and a dream to wear!
Also in this Box: Matching thread, clear elastic, a twin needle, and a sewing machine needle

Tote Bag:

In this box, we are also including a complete kit to create the Mason Pouch from Sallie Tomato. The kit includes the pattern, two cuts of fabric (exterior and lining), fusible interfacing, sew-in foam, and a zipper. Pick from the two fabric combinations below:

  • Blue Clouds Canvas
  • Mango Dot Canvas
