Self-Care Sewing Kit: Romey Dress & Top


nspired by the beloved Remy Raglan pattern, Romey features the same keyhole neckline (Remy version #2) and loose fit. Sew House Seven has added an elegant empire waist with a gathered skirt or peplum and billowy gathered sleeves at bracelet length. Both dress versions include patch pockets.

With its flowy and oversized fit, the Romey Gathered Dress and Top definitely qualifies as ‘secret pyjamas’. It can be worn casually with sneakers, sandals or boots, or sew one up in a slinkier fabric for a more polished look.

  • White Cotton Batiste  There is something so natural and comforting about a crisp cotton. This batiste, lightly crisp and wonderfully light, has a gorgeous drape, a silky hand, and delicate delicate volume. Plus the bright white is crisp and clean, like fresh linens. Be your own perfect day when you wear this fantastic fabric! (Plus it's a great canvas for Sew House Seven's embroidery add-on)
  • River Blue Viscose Dobby Dot At first glance, this fabric looks like hammered silk. The small dots, created in the dobby weave, create a tone-on-tone dotted look that is extremely subtle but makes the dress look shimmery and complex. Silky soft, with a delicious drape from the viscose content, this dress will feel amazing to wear, whether it's to a chic party or for a Saturday morning stroll.

Also in this box: Matching thread, matching button, and a sewing machine needle

The fabric for this kit is amazing and I can not wait to make the dress. Having sewn for quite sometime, I was so impressed that this kit contained everything you would need to start the project as soon as you open the beautiful box. Totally will be saving up to purchase more kits.
