- Royal Blue Seersucker - If Madras in our Classic Sew Esssential Box is a quintessential, beachy fabric, then seersucker is its partner in this box. It's impossible to see the classic blue and white lines of this fabric and not think summer vacation. The wonderful thing about seersucker is the puckered texture that transforms a simple cotton into a jack of all trades fabric. Light, airy, and touchably soft, this fabric will become a knockout pair of shorts!
- Rust Orange Crinkle Cotton - With a soft hand and lightly crepe texture, this fabric is a step above your typical cotton. It has a softer drape than a typical poplin, but still has a nice crispness for these shorts. And in an earthy orange, it will be a sunny addition to your summer wardrobe for a stylish and easy look.

Delightful gift from fellow sewer. Everything needed for project included which encourages starting the project
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the fabric. Good Purchase.
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.
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.
Everything comes in a lovely box and clearly lovingly packaged. The fabric is gorgeous
