  • Meadow Dusk Ditzy Floral Rayon - If you remember the 90s, you remember all the ditzy floral patterns. Laura Ashley florals everywhere! So we wanted to hint to that trend without getting too country. This dark, muted floral was perfect with its plum, blue, and peach flowers, all smooshed together in a ditzy pile. The fabric itself is a supple and drapey rayon challis that will show off the swing of the gored skirt and feel nice and cool in the summer heat. A lovely floral option!
  • Oatmeal Linen Cotton Jacquard - We have been itching to use this wonderful jacquard for a while now, and we finally found the perfect match! Medium weight and oh so soft, this checked fabric is neutral but never boring. We love the hint of pattern on what looks like a solid beige fabric, and we think it will look lovely with this dress pattern. A fantastic canvas to accessorize for any occasion!
  • Ocean Blue Sandwashed Cotton - With a soft hand and lightly crepe texture, this fabric is a step above your typical cotton poplin. This fabric has a soft drape, slightly numbly feel, and a dry hnad that makes it ideal for this summer dress. Plus the solid color will show the princess seams and tie backall the better. Like a perfect summer sky, this fabric will have you beating the heat in style!

Wow

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.

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.
