  • Eggplant Yarn Dyed Linen Cotton - A mix of linen and cotton, this medium-weight fabric has a fuller drape that is perfect for this skirt. The beauty of linen is that the more you wash it, the softer it becomes. Plus, the cotton keeps the fabric from wrinkling too much. Eggplant yarn crossed with white weft thread creates the heather purple hue that is sure to set them apart from anything you can find in stores. A lovely spring-ready option!
  • Lagoon Blue Crinkle Cotton Crepe - This fabric is all about the texture! The creped surface is nubbly and dry, with a crisp drape and matte finish . In a gorgeous lagoon blue, veering towards teal, this fabric will transform into a beautiful skirt. The lightweight means it will gather well at the waist, and the structure of the fabric will really let the swishy shape of the skirt shine. And like most cottons, it will soften up with washing so you can be sure your skirt will be oh-so-comfortable!

Favorite Winter Trousers

This box arrived just in time for the cooler weather. The trousers by The Assembly Line are great. I was a bit skeptical of the double pleats on the front and double darts in the back. Once I was done, I felt like I stepped out from the 1920s or 30s. I'm 5'10" and normally need to find jeans/pants with a 34" inseam. I was very surprised at the length of these trousers since their website state that they draft their patterns for a height of 5'6". I decided not to add any extra length and they ended up being just right -- with a narrow hem -- when I wear flats. I would definitely add an inch or two next time to widen the hem and make them a little longer to wear with any type of small heel.

I also really loved the buttons that were included in the box.

I am already planning on making another pair of these trousers for this winter.

Good, but...

I love the fabric, pattern and notions, but the pattern calls for interfacing which was not included. I thought it would be and had to make a run to the fabric store.

Awesome pattern, concerns with content of kit

The pattern has been really nice to work with, everything is really clean and finished. The needle works very well for this fabric, and I love how the kit was packed. However, I have a few concerns with the accessories that came with the box. The fabric ended up being really think for the pattern - some of the seams had 4-5 layers of fabric, making for bulky seams. The fabric is also a heavy weight when the pattern recommended light to medium weight. I still think I can make it work, it just made it difficult to work with.

Additionally, I received 2 sets of thread and it was not enough to complete the project. It got me through most of it, and I tried my best to preserve it. I'm not sure anyone could make the entire coat with only the 2 thread.

I'd still order again because of the ease of everything coming in one kit, and I realize this is a new service so I'm hopeful it will only get better!
