Lightweight Wovens with drape
Sewing a yoke, inserting sleeves, gathering fabrics

- Hunter Green Viscose Twill - This twill is one of our all time faves. It's soft, silky, and has a lovely hint of shine in the right light. Essentially, it feels like loungewear but looks like silk and who could ask for anything more. The deep hunter color is perfect for the holiday season and beyond. Seriously, you'll want to wear this dress everywhere!
- Winterberry Rayon Voile - It's not exactly the holly and the ivy, but this fabric hints to that holiday spirit. A dark navy background features large scale branches of bright red berries scattered across the front. This pattern is bold and beautiful and only gets better when you feel the silky hand fo the rayon. So light and soft, it will show off the flutter sleeve and hi-lo hem of the dress wonderfully. A stunning fabric for a stunning dress!
- Burgundy Floral Dobby Viscose - From the looks of this fabric, it should be heavy and stiff, like what you find on a table runner, that sort of damask print. But instead, it's gloriously light, silky, and thin, exactly what this dress calls for. the floral pattern is woven into the fabric, adding texture and catching the light as you move. And the deep wine red is ideal for the holiday season, a grown up cranberry red that will look stupendous as this dress!
This box is so dreamy and thoughtfully planned out. I'm so grateful for Mary's vision and her ability to put the effort into remembering all the little details. I'm an intermediate sewist, but it's nice to just be able to pick up my box and GO! The Atelier Brunette fabric from this month's box is probably one of the nicest fabrics I've ever worked with!
So wonderful to receive this lovely box. Put together with thought and detail. Fabric is perfect - shipping to Canada was quick.
Can’t wait to sew up my dress :)
Well picked fabric. Fast shipping. Box worth your $
