  • Paisley Patchwork Rayon Voile - Our favorite rayon voile is back, this time with a bold, complex, and all together unique print. Combining flowers, paisley, patchwork, and a whole lot of color, this fabric is a stunner. Deep blues and greens, bright whites and yellows, and hint of red give the voile so much character, while the silky, semifluid drape and soft hand make it a dream to wear. For a top that is as unique as you are, this is the fabric for you!
  • White Cotton Batiste - As sewists, we may often gravitate towards bold prints or fancy weaves, but there is something so natural and comforting about a crisp cotton. This voile, lightly crisp and wonderfully light, has a drape that will show off the slight flare of this top with delicate volume. The smooth hand adds a touch of luxury and the bright white is an absolute classic. This top will go with everything, which is perfect, because you'll never want to take it off!
  • Piccadilly Sunset Rayon Lawn - When the weather is cold, it's nice to wrap yourself in warm colors, like this cinnamon brown, rose pink, and deep maroon rayon. Though it looks like an abstract dotted print, it's actually wildflowers with the petals scattered to the wind. Plus, the fabric itself is a luscious lawn, with its tight weave and silky hand. Just a hint of body shows off the shape of the body while still draping wonderfully. A gorgeous 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!
