Classic Sew Select Box - March 2023

$95.00

The Nikko pattern includes four views, all with a simple and stylish mock turtleneck. Views A and B are tops with a fitted silhouette that is perfect to pair with a high waisted bottom like the Lander pattern. Views C and D are straighter through the waist and hip, extending to the ankle, with knee-length side slits to complete the dress. Views A and C are both sleeveless, cut to resemble a racerback, but with enough coverage to wear a regular bra. Views B and D have long fitted sleeves that reach the wrist. More...

  • Black Double Brushed Poly - We couldn't do a whole month of turtlenecks and not offer a black version. The ghost of Steve Jobs wouldn't allow it! This double brushed polyester, which has the softest hand you're bound to find in a knit, makes a perfect choice. It's got amazing stretch and recovery, a soft drape, and medium body. The brushed face will feel so cozy in the turtleneck and the black color will be elegant and understated. A perfect wardrobe necessity!
  • Evergreen Cotton-Modal Jersey - Our favorite t-shirt knit, this fabric is beefy yet soft, silky yet not clingy. The modal adds a lovely sheen to this fabric and the cotton gives it good weight, a must on cold winter days. And the color is heavenly. Darker than some of the other options, the green is serene and lush, like pine trees on a snowy day. A lovely fabric for a lovely top!

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!
