Classic Sew Select Box - 6 Months - March 2024
The Arenite Pants are the luxuriously deep-pocketed, slouchy pants of your dreams. Incredibly versatile and amazingly cozy, you can wear these high-waisted pants for date night, in the office, or as pajamas. The pattern includes three leg finishing options – a knit cuff, an elasticated woven cuff, or a dressier hem. Learn to sew French seams, flat-felled seams and a comfortable, non-twist elastic waistband for a made-to-last, beautifully crafted wardrobe staple. It is the perfect project for those new to sewing pants, as the fit is very forgiving.
- Tobacco Brown Tencel Twill - We've used this fabric before, and the best word to describe this twill is "buttery." The twill weave is very fine, but it adds a lovely sheen to the fabric, which will really elevate the tobacco brown color. With a supple drape and soft hand, pants in this fabric will feel silky soft against your skin. Plus, they'll look as amazing as they feel!
- Black Sandwashed Cupro/Viscose Twill - We are big fans of this viscose/cupro blend, and it is just a dream: buttery, deeply saturated and silky, it has all the characteristics of a silk without the upkeep. And this teal color is just gorgeous. These pants will be elegant and one of a kind. Who can ask for anything more?
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.
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.
