- Mushroom Floral Printed Cotton- There's something straight out of a storybook with this print between its petite flowers and tiny mushrooms. And the blue color is serene and restful. With a dry hand and soft, flexible drape, this fabric is a dream to wear and the cotton will keep you cool and comfy - a must for sleepwear
- Ballerina Pink Tartan Cotton Flannel - While most tartans tend to be on the darker side, this plaid is bright and light, combining creamy white and two shades of pink, for an effect that is soft and serene. It evokes peppermint patties and sugar plums, perfect for days when you can stay inside, warm and cozy, while everything sparkles outside. And, honestly, who wouldn't want that in a fabric? The soft brushed cotton is warm and medium weight to help you create your new favorite pair of flannel pajamas!
- Wintergreen Cotton Double Gauze - We do love a good double gauze. And it makes total sense that the fabric of "secret pajamas" would also be amazing for actual PJS. This cotton gauze is light and slightly squishy and will feel like a cloud while you sleep. The mint green is pastel yet deeply saturated, and we love how the softness of the color matches the softness of the fabric. If you're looking for a set of PJs that feels like you've been wrapped in a baby blanket, look no further!
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the fabric. Good Purchase.
This box arrived just in time for the cooler weather. The trousers by The Assembly Line are great. I was a bit skeptical of the double pleats on the front and double darts in the back. Once I was done, I felt like I stepped out from the 1920s or 30s. I'm 5'10" and normally need to find jeans/pants with a 34" inseam. I was very surprised at the length of these trousers since their website state that they draft their patterns for a height of 5'6". I decided not to add any extra length and they ended up being just right -- with a narrow hem -- when I wear flats. I would definitely add an inch or two next time to widen the hem and make them a little longer to wear with any type of small heel.
I also really loved the buttons that were included in the box.
I am already planning on making another pair of these trousers for this winter.
I love the fabric, pattern and notions, but the pattern calls for interfacing which was not included. I thought it would be and had to make a run to the fabric store.
Everything comes in a lovely box and clearly lovingly packaged. The fabric is gorgeous
The pattern has been really nice to work with, everything is really clean and finished. The needle works very well for this fabric, and I love how the kit was packed. However, I have a few concerns with the accessories that came with the box. The fabric ended up being really think for the pattern - some of the seams had 4-5 layers of fabric, making for bulky seams. The fabric is also a heavy weight when the pattern recommended light to medium weight. I still think I can make it work, it just made it difficult to work with.
Additionally, I received 2 sets of thread and it was not enough to complete the project. It got me through most of it, and I tried my best to preserve it. I'm not sure anyone could make the entire coat with only the 2 thread.
I'd still order again because of the ease of everything coming in one kit, and I realize this is a new service so I'm hopeful it will only get better!
