- Black/Gray Houndstooth Jacquard Knit - A bolder houndstooth than in our Sew Essential Box, this fabric combines black and gray for a fantastic suiting effect. While not a traditional ponte, this jacquard knit has the same interlock knit and smooth, stable hand. With this pattern, the fabric will transform into an amazing pair of workwear pants, with subtle pattern and casual elegance. A gorgeous knit!
- Burgundy Heavyweight Ponte - This ponte is all about the color - a deep wine red that makes you yearn for fall colors and a cozy glass by the fire. Add to that the wonderful breathability of the high viscose content and a soft, matte hand, and you have a wunder-fabric! When turned into your very own pair of "secret-pajama" pants, this fabric is sure to become your new favorite. Embrace the fall mood with this fantastic choice!
- Deep Teal Ponte de Roma - If you want a pop of color for your pants, this is the one for you. A deep, jewel-toned teal is perfect for the upcoming season, and is an unexpected color for a pair of pants (though it's pretty close to one of the sample photos). The fabric itself is medium weight with a silky, matte face and amazing recovery. It's a match made in heaven, and we're here for it!
Delightful gift from fellow sewer. Everything needed for project included which encourages starting the project
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
