Sew Essential Box - December 2022


The Agnes Pyjama Set is a relaxed loungewear suit that comes with the option of shorts or long trousers. The shorts/trousers are designed to sit high on your natural waist with an elasticated waistband and feature no side seam so are very simple and fast to sew. The shirt is very oversized with batwing sleeves and no waist definition. It has a convertible collar with a button up front and patch pockets. *Note, you will receive enough fabric for the shorts version only* More...

  • Royal Buffalo Check Cotton Flannel - Show your lumberjack love with this classic buffalo check flannel. This brushed flannel has a wonderfully soft feel and just the right amount of warmth. The royal blue contrasts beautifully with the black and the larger scale of the check (roughly 1.5x1.5) gives a gorgeous tartan look. A classic winter look! 
  • Spearmint Flowers Lightweight Cotton - In a lovely minty green, this fabric has a similar hand to a cotton poplin but I’m a quilting weight. While we don’t normally use that type of cotton, this fabric from Cotton +Steel has the perfect amount of crispness for a pair of cotton pajamas, this cotton will keep you warm but never hot. And the sweet pattern, with lighter flowers in almost a geometric pattern adds just the right amount of whimsy. All in all, an amazing choice for a set of PJs!
  • Blush Pink Viscose Dot - If you want just a hint of texture in your PJs, look no further than this viscose dot. Little bumps of of dobby weave on  this blush pink rayon creates a beautiful polka dot pattern that will really shine. The fabric is wonderfully lightweight and soft with a dreamy drape, and the pajamas you make will feel just like a dream, especially if you sleep hot. A beautiful choice!

the perfect box for serious sewist.

Needlesharp provides a beautifully curated box for sewing a garment. I love that the fabric is matched to the pattern. The tread and needle is matched to the fabric and all extra notions are included in the box. I have made many garments from these boxes and I am so proud of all of them. I have also discovered new fabrics and patterns that I might not have found on my own.

Zoe is my blouse!

Such an easy pattern and it looks so pretty on. Will be making another one very soon!! Loved the box and the beautiful rayon challis in burgundy. Such a treat and would have never bought this pattern. Thank you for such a great experience!❤️

Still learning after all these years
A few problems

I am struggling with the pattern. The instructions are confusing to say the least. Fabric is great.

Good box, but could be improved.

Not enough interfacing included, had to purchase more to finish dress. Also, the 'extra' was a card stock bookmark. Kind of silly and not needed. Hoping more for sewing notions. Great fabric and presentation though! Just needed enough interfacing and better 'extra' item.

My best make yet!

I recently finished my Wilder dress in Burnt Sienna Monstera Print Rayon Poplin from the Sew Essential box and I can’t rave enough about this kit! The fabric is beautiful and incredibly high quality, and since I wear a smaller size I have enough left over to make a True Bias Ogden cami, too! The included thread matches beautifully. And I enjoyed making the Wilder pattern so much that I’ve also used it to make three Wilder blouses. Just the pattern and project materials are a great value, but with my extra yardage and multiple pattern usages it’s a steal. I’ve bought a few Needle Sharp kits and am always blown away by the quality and style of the fabric and choice of patterns. Can’t wait for my next project!
