- Grey and White Striped Dot Double Knit - I saw this fabric on Instagram and knew I had to use it! A true double knit, the one side consists of gray and white stripes while the other features a polka dot pattern. Truly unique, this fabric still manages to be surprisingly light and supple, like your favorite midweight jersey. With the most drape of the three options, this will give a slouchy look that's perfect for lounging. Pick your favorite side for a patterned top, or mix and match for a look that is truly one of a kind. If you're brave, you could even go for a reversible top!
- Ivory Anti-Pill Polar Fleece - We've never offered polar fleece before, but a fleece turtleneck seemed so snuggly and plush, that I couldn't get the idea out of my head. This snowy white fleece is soft and breathable, with a shearling-like fuzziness on the right side. The moderate drape will give structure to the turtleneck and some swing to the boxy shape of the body. Designed to resist pilling, it will stay lofty through wear, which is ideal because you won't want to take this pullover off!
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.
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!❤️
I am struggling with the pattern. The instructions are confusing to say the least. Fabric is great.
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.
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!
