  • Indigo Washed 8 oz Denim - The short version of this skirt is ideal for denim. The structure of the fabric creates a lovely bell shape and topstitching adds detail and contrast. I've chosen a dark indigo wash for the skirt, all the better to show off topstitching, and the 8oz weight is just right for a structured skirt that still has some movement. If you are looking to have a classic denim skirt in your wardrobe, this is the option for you!
  • Posey Smokey Dotted Floral Dobby Viscose - It's hard to categorize this fabric. It's a floral viscose, but it also has a dotted dobby weave for a tone on tone detail. All of it combines into a unique fabric that will become a one of a kind skirt! The soft, semi-fluid drape of the viscose works for all versions of the skirt but will have the most twirl-worthy flow for the longer style. Plus, the deep green, dotted with orange and cream flowers, is soft, saturated, and truly lovely for the spring season. A gorgeous choice!

the perfect box for serious sewist.

Needlesharp provides a beautifully curated box for sewing a garment. I love that the fabric is matched to the pattern. The tread and needle is matched to the fabric and all extra notions are included in the box. I have made many garments from these boxes and I am so proud of all of them. I have also discovered new fabrics and patterns that I might not have found on my own.

Zoe is my blouse!

Such an easy pattern and it looks so pretty on. Will be making another one very soon!! Loved the box and the beautiful rayon challis in burgundy. Such a treat and would have never bought this pattern. Thank you for such a great experience!❤️

Still learning after all these years
A few problems

I am struggling with the pattern. The instructions are confusing to say the least. Fabric is great.

Good box, but could be improved.

Not enough interfacing included, had to purchase more to finish dress. Also, the 'extra' was a card stock bookmark. Kind of silly and not needed. Hoping more for sewing notions. Great fabric and presentation though! Just needed enough interfacing and better 'extra' item.

My best make yet!

I recently finished my Wilder dress in Burnt Sienna Monstera Print Rayon Poplin from the Sew Essential box and I can’t rave enough about this kit! The fabric is beautiful and incredibly high quality, and since I wear a smaller size I have enough left over to make a True Bias Ogden cami, too! The included thread matches beautifully. And I enjoyed making the Wilder pattern so much that I’ve also used it to make three Wilder blouses. Just the pattern and project materials are a great value, but with my extra yardage and multiple pattern usages it’s a steal. I’ve bought a few Needle Sharp kits and am always blown away by the quality and style of the fabric and choice of patterns. Can’t wait for my next project!
