  • Navy/Heather Gray Double Knit - We love the beefiness of double knits, but this fabric ups the ante with two different faces to the fabric. One side is a deep navy blue while the other is a light, heather gray. The combination opens up lots of possibilities for this sweater, with contrast cuffs, hembands, and button bands. You can even play with the color on the pockets! And it's all grounded by the rayon polyester blend that is soft, supple, and oh so cozy!
  • Oxblood Boucle Knit Confession time: I spent most of high school winters wearing a series of boucle sweaters from J Crew in different colors. If only I had know then I could have used this fabric to make my own! This boucle sweater knit is just what you're looking for to make snuggly, oversized cardigan. Fuzzy and warm, this fabric, with its deep wine color, is set to become your new favorite thing to wear all winter!
  • Gray Spotted Cotton French Terry - We are total suckers for a french terry. It seems to combine all our favorite things: a jersey face, a thicker hand, and lots of warmth. This terry gets even better with a yarn dyed dot pattern, with white polka dots integrated into the knit. The subtle look adds playfulness to the fabric, and will make your cardigan a cut above the ordinary. With 100% cotton content, the fabric is breathable, soft, and ideal for layering. We're in love!

High Quality Fabric

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the fabric. Good Purchase.

Favorite Winter Trousers

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.

Good, but...

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.

Love it!!!

Everything comes in a lovely box and clearly lovingly packaged. The fabric is gorgeous

Awesome pattern, concerns with content of kit

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!
