Classic Sew Select Box - July 2024


Sauvie is the dress you'll reach for when you want comfort, ease and style in those hot summer months. It's also perfect for layering over a t-shirt when the temperatures drop. Sauvie can be anything from a swim cover-up to a casual summer dress to an elegant evening gown depending on your fabric choice. The low front and back V-necklines and narrow straps were designed to cover a bra, and optional bra keeper instructions are included to hide and secure your bra straps within the garment for that extra couture detail. With two pocket options, three hem finishes, two waist finishes and two hem lengths, you can mix and match any of the versions' features.

Version #1 - loose waist, above-the-knee hem.

Version #2 - loose waist, midi length with side vents.

Version #3 - wide elasticized waist, midi length.

Version #4 - wide elasticized waist, midi length with ruffle hem. More...

  • Maize Cotton Batiste - ThereÕs not much more summery than a bright, sunny yellow, so it was simply obvious to feature this gorgeous cotton batiste. Light and silky, this finely woven cotton is a classic summer fabric. It is breathable, soft, and supple. The lightly crisp drape will accentuate the flow of this dress, without adding too much volume, all while keeping you cool in summer heat. And the color will be a burst of cheer in your closet. WeÕre happier just looking at it!
  • Magenta Baby Noil - If you love our viscose linen noil, this will be your next fave. With a higher rayon content, this fabric is even silkier and drapier, making it ideal for this dress. And the color is divine! A vibrant, jewel-toned pink, it give a kick of color without knocking you out. You may not think a pink dress is in your future, but I'm here to convince you otherwise. Go bold with this stunning choice!

The Indigo Pre-Quilted Stripe fabric in this box just blew me away. The pictures and description just did not do it justice.
The box comes with all the notions needed to complete the project. It's lovely to have a new needle for each new product.

High Quality Fabric

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the fabric. Good Purchase.

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.
