- French Blue Embroidered Cotton Voile - This caftan really works for so many fabrics, from linens to silks to cottons. Because we want to create something as unique as you are, this fabric immediately jumped to the top of our list. Between the bright French blue and the lovely floral embroidery, this fabric has it all! Tiny cutouts are small enough that you won't need to underline, especially with the loose fit and flowy drape. Textural and subtle, this fabric will become a unique dress beyond anything you could find in stores!
- Lemon Stripe Cotton Double Gauze - We say each month that there is always one fabric that cements our color scheme. This month, this fabric started the ball rolling with its gorgeous, warm yellow. It's sunshine in a stripe! With the double gauze weave and slight crinkle that creates, this fabric is wonderfully light and soft. This dress can go everywhere - from the beach to picnic to Target - and you will look amazing anywhere you go. Secret summer pajamas for the win!
- Bright Pink Abstract Floral Ecovero Twill - There are large-scale prints and then there are giant prints that take up nearly the whole width of the fabric. That's this printed Tencel which is like a mural of floral color. Huge green leaves and red flowers float on a bubblegum pink background, giving both a tropical and painterly feel. The tencel itself is dry and supple, and will transform into a truly gorgeous, statement caftan. Dopamine dressing indeed!

I sewed up the Dec box immediately! The fabric was gorgeous. I chose the box based on the luxurious Atelier Brunette fabric and was so pleased by the quality. I decided it was so special that it would make a perfect holiday gift for my daughter. She is going to love these pjs. I love getting everything I need to sew a beautiful garment in one box without hassle and I love getting to try out new patterns. This month’s merchant & mills pattern I probably wouldn’t have picked up but was pleasantly surprised and will make it again!
The glen check in this month’s box is amazing. I love how it’s subtle yet has that splash of colour in the plaid. The fabric has use a touch of spandex which will make these trousers so comfortable. Always a home run with these boxes!
Loved it! Such a fun and challenging project
The jersey knit was the perfect fabric for this pattern, absolutely love my new dress!
This was my first box I've ordered. I could not be more impressed! Everything is so thoughtful--whatever I could possibly need is in there (including chocolate! Lol) for any of the versions I decide to do. The material is beautiful and the lining materials and threads coordinate perfectly. I have not had a chance to get started on the sewing yet but I can't wait!
