- Gray Tartan Plaid Flannel - Starting off our plaid trend for this month, the tartan is dark and moody, just like March. Charcoal grays and blacks give the look of a wool coating, even when the fabric itself is medium weight and soft, like your favorite cotton. An amazing transitional piece, this skirt will have you going into spring in style!
- Cotton Tencel Ringspun Lightweight Denim - This Tencel has the look of a dark wash denim, but a nice, medium weight and soft drape, like if you took your favorite denim and washed it a thousand times until it felt like your favorite bed sheets. And who wouldn't want that in a fabric? This fabric will sew up into a skirt that will feel like an instant classic in your wardrobe. Simply gorgeous!
- Burgundy 21 W Corduroy - The wale of this corduroy is so fine, it looks and feels almost like a velvet. It's plush and soft, and that means your skirt will feel as amazing as it looks. But, who are we kidding, this fabric is all about the color! The deep wine hue captures enough of the Y2K trend of late to feel hip, but is timeless enough to last beyond the fad. Lightweight, with a soft hand and drape, this fabric will be comfortable to wear and easy to sew.
Very impressed with the quality of the materials provided in this box. The Megan Nielsen pattern is really fantastic and includes many links to information and tutorials. I'm not going to lie, this will be an ambitious make for me. Thanks to Needle Sharp for making this irresistibly great box to inspire me.
I had a Needle Sharp subscription a couple of years ago, but had to stop when I got too busy. I recently restarted it and am still delighted with the fabrics, patterns and overall high quality if the product. However!! You are no longer allowed to skip months of you have a pre-paid subscription, which is more affordable than month-to-month. I am extremely disappointed. This has kind of ruined my otherwise excellent experience and always leaves me wondering what will happen if I truly don't have time or don't like the theme of the month.
All was going sort of ok until I started serging the waistband. I broke 2 needles and the serger started chewing up the fabric so the waistband has holes in it. Lots of parts of the waistband looks like it was gnawed on by rats and I’m too frustrated by the breaking needles to continue
