- Navy Lush Velveteen - With the crush of velvet and the deep, dreamy blue of this fabric, we're instantly transported of posh cafes in Paris, hazy with cigarette smoke and full of the sound of jazz. Okay, a fabric can't take you to Paris - and cigarette smoke is bad for you - but it certainly doesn't hurt to have a skirt in this velveteen to remind you of it. With a crisp drape, this fabric fits the tailored look of the skirt while the lush pile of the velveteen softens to the look. C'est si bon!
- Harland Tartan Wool Suiting - We fell hard for this plaid wool suiting. 100% wool, this fabric has red, green, navy and cream tones that combine to create a delicious tartan you'll want to wear all year round. A mix of punk rock and scotland highlands, the plaid is like nothing we've seen for skirts. Plus, a suiting weight gives it flex and lightness for three-season wear. A stunning choice!
- Cast Iron Linen Twill - We can't deny a good gray! The deep, dark hue, a complex gray, shows off the twill weave of this heavyweight linen. Soft and delicately textured, this fabric has a fuller drape that's perfect for the A-line shape of this skirt. And because it's on the heavier side, this linen is a wonderful transitional piece, going from winter to summer in a snap!
The Indigo Pre-Quilted Stripe fabric in this box just blew me away. The pictures and description just did not do it justice.
The box comes with all the notions needed to complete the project. It's lovely to have a new needle for each new product.
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.
