New to our line up this year is Monica's His and Hers Sew Along. There are a lot of options with this kit! You can make Hers, which is a supportive bralette and boy shorts, you can make His, which is a lovely, soft boxer brief or you can make both! For Her, Monica is showing us how to make this cute and comfy bralette and boy short set in your choice of our soft and yummy bamboo jersey prints. She is using the Sweet Sixteen Bralette pattern from Bra Maker's Supply for the bralette and the Bravo Bottoms #2 pattern from Bravo Bella for the boy short. For the Men's Underwear she is using the Bra Maker's Supply Men's Underwear pattern. If you don't have these patterns, we have an add pattern option that you may choose, as well as an option to add thread. There is also an option to choose your print. You might want to choose our fierce Jungle print which gives a nod to Monica's former profession as a keeper of big cats! Or celebrate the Bee with our fruits and flowers Bee Sweet print featuring oranges, orange blossoms and adorable honey bees on a lovely light blue background. Finally, you may want to go "medieval fantasy novel" with our Dragons print.
In adding thread, you'll want to bear in mind that black thread on black fabric and elastic will disappear, which is both lovely and difficult. Choosing an accent color on your thread will let you see your stitching more easily, and will be easier to sew.
Accent colors are predetermined for these kits. The accents for Bee Sweet will all be in Frost, while the accents for the Jungle are Midnight. If Dragons is your print choice you will receive Midnight accents for the Hers and Dark Gray for the His.
Please note that while we tried to get enough yardage for everyone to get a kit, your first choice might not be available. Please indicate your second choice in the order notes. If we run out of the prints we will be putting up additional options. Thank you!
