Sew Confident Box - April

*** Available to order from February 15 to March 14. Ships on April 2 ***

Mila might look like a complex pattern but that’s not the case. If you are an intermediate seamstress or even a confident beginner, it will be perfect for you. Versatile and customizable, there is a jumpsuit view with V neckline, wrap-around ties, pleated trousers with tapered legs and back elastic waistband, and a dress view with the same elements and some changes: the front neckline is buttoned, there are ¾ length sleeves and a pencil skirt with front slit. With its casual yet elegant look, I hope Mila will be able to seduce you. More...

  • Dark Gray Tropical Melange Suiting - It's no longer just about the little black dress. Now, you can also have the perfect black jumpsuit (PBJ, if you will) This dark gray suiting is almost black, but with a subtle heather finish, almost like a wool suiting. The fabric is soft and supple, exactly what you want for this pattern. Your finished garment will be elegant and ready for whatever you throw at it - sandals and a bold necklace for a lazy weekend or heels and a blazer for that important meeting at work. This jumpsuit does it all, just like you!
  • Blue Tropical Floral Linen Blend - This print is a showstopper. Large scale chrysanthemums and lotus float on a navy background, suggesting aloha shirts and tropical caftans. This fabric will really shine with the minimal style lines of the pattern and will make feel like you're on vacation even if it's still 50 degrees in April. If you're looking to create a bold and beautiful jumpsuit, this is the pick for you!
  • Mustard Viscose Linen Woven - There have been too many mustard jumpsuits floating around lately for me to ignore the trend. Bright colors are the name of the game, and I'm ready and willing to play. This rich mustard comes in the form of a linen viscose blend, meaning not only is the fabric bold, it is also soft and textural, everything you want in a fabric for this more architectural pattern. The saturated color will really show off the twist at the center and it will create a great palette against which you can play with jewelry and layers, scarves and footwear. So many options!
Also in this Box: Matching thread, 6 buttons, waistband elastic, and a sewing machine needle
