Classic Sew Essential Box - 6 Months - April 2023
The Puff shirt has overlapping shoulders that create an elegant boatneck. The sleeves are wide at the bottom and gathered with elastic folded inwards which creates a puff sleeve. Even though the end result looks very refined and elegant, it's really easy and fun to make. More...

- Evergreen Viscose Linen Silky Noil - I've used this fabric before for a dress, but I couldn't get it out of my head for this blouse. The little nubs of the noil will add texture and interest to the blouse and the viscose will add a nice amount of drape to the bodice. The linen will keep the structure of the sleeve so you can have just the right amount of volume for your look. Plus, that deep green color is divine - rich and verdant. If you want to let the color make the blouse, this is the fabric for you!
- Cream and Blue Ikat Cotton - I have been itching to use an ikat for a while now. I love the uneven nature of the print and how it really shows off the weave of the fabric. If you're unfamiliar, ikat is a resist-dyeing technique where the threads used for weaving are dyed beforehand. The ikat threads are bound in a pattern so that the threads covered by the binding ‘resist’ the dye, creating a design. Here that design is a beautiful check pattern where squares of indigo blue float on a white background. The simple cotton is soft and supple and will show off the clean lines of the pattern beautifully. A dream of a fabric!
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!
