- Classic Wash Cotton Tencel 4.5 oz 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 jacket? The lightest of the three options, this fabric will sew up into a cross between a jacket and a robe that you can wear anywhere you want. A gorgeous option!
- Gray on White Tartan Flannel - Shackets are all the rage right now, so it was clear from the planning stages that we should incorporate that into our boxes. Then when we found this snuggly flannel, we knew we had to use it! While most tartans tend to be on the darker side, this plaid is bright and light, combining icy gray and creamy white, for an effect that is soft and serene. It evokes snowy winter days when you can stay inside, warm and cozy, while everything sparkles outside. And, honestly, who wouldn't want that in a fabric?
- Red Clay Organic Cotton Canvas - The most structured of our three choices, this fabric will transform into a work coat of your dreams. The cotton is soft and flexible, and at 7 oz, just the right weight to be durable without stiff. The red clay color is earthy and rich, and I can't stop imagining how amazing it will look over a pair of jeans. Add warmth to your outerwear wardrobe with this stunning canvas fabric!
This pattern and the fabric were fantastic! The pattern had such clear instructions as well as a detailed blog post to walk through all the steps. The fabric choice was nice to work with and is super comfy and seems like it will last.
Nice notions included as well! Loved it.
I really like the jacket and pattern. The only thing I would recommend is to have the front facing be one solid pattern piece instead of two separate pieces. This was a little confusing.
I thought this was a very flattering pattern and I am pleased with how it is turning out. The lightweight cotton voile print was a good selection on Mary's part and she included everything needed so no further shopping necessary which I love. I used the included tear away product to stabilize the waist and it was easy to use. I skipped the side zipper as I didn't need it and raised the neckline for a more modest fit. I have enjoyed all my Needle Sharp boxes, love how Mary puts everything you need in there plus labels and little extras. It has helped introduce me to Indy patterns and keeps my me made wardrobe currant.
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.
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!❤️
