Sew Essential Box - October 2023
I love the box and its contents. It was so nice to have everything that was needed and of good quality. I made a trial pair, found the fit too large, and made a second trail pair in size 4. I just finished the final pair except for the snaps. They do fit, and I love the fabric, but the pockets aren’t quite staying in place attractively. So your work and the box, 5 stars, but the pattern took some work. Thank you.
This pattern and the fabric were fantastic! The pattern had such clear instructions as well as a detailed blog post to walk through all the steps. The fabric choice was nice to work with and is super comfy and seems like it will last.
Nice notions included as well! Loved it.
I really like the jacket and pattern. The only thing I would recommend is to have the front facing be one solid pattern piece instead of two separate pieces. This was a little confusing.
I thought this was a very flattering pattern and I am pleased with how it is turning out. The lightweight cotton voile print was a good selection on Mary's part and she included everything needed so no further shopping necessary which I love. I used the included tear away product to stabilize the waist and it was easy to use. I skipped the side zipper as I didn't need it and raised the neckline for a more modest fit. I have enjoyed all my Needle Sharp boxes, love how Mary puts everything you need in there plus labels and little extras. It has helped introduce me to Indy patterns and keeps my me made wardrobe currant.
