Who doesn’t love a good wedding? The only downside to attending a wedding is the fear that you might be wearing the same outfit as another guest. So, the cure to that would be to make your own knockout dress. The chances of anyone else wearing the same dress in the same fabric are pretty slim.
So I put together a box of gorgeous fabrics perfect for making yourself the type of outfit that gets people asking where you purchased it from, to which you can casually reply “oh this? I made it!”
When I heard that Lisa Comfort was bringing out her own range of fabrics I knew that I had to get them into the boxes for you guys and with the royal wedding coming up it seemed like a match made in heaven! The Elderflower Press fabric is the softest cotton lawn and is absolutely perfect for something a little more special. I’ll be honest, I totally fan girl over Lisa so I was super excited to email her to discuss including the fabric in my boxes!
To match this gorgeous fabric I chose to include the Kew Dress pattern from Nina Lee. The pattern has 3 variations, including the option of a skirt. It has some beautiful details including ruched or off-the-shoulder sleeves and gathered or strappy shoulders.
The Luxury and Classic boxes also include a handy little sewing essentials kit, perfect for popping in your handbag to fix any little outfit mishaps!
Classic and Mini Boxes
The fabric included in these boxes is the most gorgeous mauve blossom print cotton poplin which is perfect for making skirts and dresses for a summer wedding. Poplin can work for both full and fitted skirts and makes a great close fitting bodice. I love the blossom print on this fabric, it’s so pretty.
The Craft Cotton Company fat quarters this month are a beautiful songbird collection which would make great little purses or clutch bags to accessorise your outfit.
As well as the usual Gutermann thread each box includes 2 meters of a beautiful white and pink lace trim, dressmakers chalk and a heart lolly.
I hope you enjoy these boxes as much as I have enjoyed putting them together. I can’t wait to see what you make. Don’t forget you can post your pictures to the Facebook page or on Instagram using the hashtag #sewhayleyjanemakes
