{Sew Coordinated} November 2015

I have been dying to share the latest kit for Sew Cooridnated!  I have split this kit into two posts because I am tired of waiting on the rain to stop to photograph the last outfit.

Sew Coordinated is a monthly subscription sewing kit brought to you by Mama Made and Beautiful Fabrics.  It is so fun taking 5 coordinating fabrics each month along with matching notions and finding patterns that will really highlight the gorgeousness (Is this even a word?  I'm going with yes. LOL)  of each item and maximize the yardage.

Sadly, as Breanne announced this morning on Sew Coordinated's Facebook page, Sew Coordinated will be taking a hiatus after this month.  While we patiently await its return, let's focus on the gorgeous fabrics she chose for November!  The jewel tones of Free Spirit Fabric's Music Collection are deep, beautiful and rich -- perfect for these Thanksgiving dresses I made my two daughters.

Kit Contents:

  • 1 yd - Victorian Rose in Teal - Music Collection by April Cornell for Free Spirit Fabric
  • 1 yd - Anglaise  in Green - Music Collection by April Cornell for Free Spirit Fabric
  • 1/2 yd - Meadow Song in Gold - Music Collection by April Cornell for Free Spirit Fabric
  • 1/2 yd - Devon Rose in Chocolate - Music Collection by April Cornell for Free Spirit Fabric
  • 1/2 yd - Primrose in Olive - Music Collection by April Cornell for Free Spirit Fabric
  • 2 wooden buttons by "Crafting with Buttons"
  • 2 yds of Squirrel/Acorn Ribbon
  • 1 spool of Gutermann Thread
  • Project Bag (to store your project while you are still working on it) 

As I was planning out this month's kit, the Merry Dress by Little Lizard King was heading into testing {It's releasing this week!}.  This dress features a boat neck, scoop back, various sleeve lengths and a fully pleated skirt.  It is the perfect pattern to showcase the Victorian Rose.  I paired it with a deep red found in my stash and decided a monogram in a matching teal thread would tie it all together. 

I used one of the included buttons on the back bodice and used the remaining button as a hair accessory.

This next dress, the Genevieve Dress by Violette Field Threads, pairs Anglaise with Devon and compliments my daughter's brown eyes and brunette locks.  It features a fitted bodice with a flounce overlay, button-down back and a very full, twirly skirt.  

I didn't quite have enough of the Anglaise for the under bodice so I colorblocked it for a fun surprise only my daughter and I (and now, all of you...lol) would know about.

Both girls love their Thanksgiving Day dresses!  I'll be back with {Part Two} showcasing the final two fabrics as soon as the rain subsides.  Until then, here are a couple more pics to enjoy!

If you've ever wondered about how Sew Coordinated works, here is some information.   Fingers crossed the hiatus is short and sweet... lol  (but also know that Breanne is a very busy lady that deserves to take a break to focus on her family and other areas of business).

Sew Coordinated FAQ:

  • What is Sew Coordinated? 
Sew Coordinated is a monthly kit club! Each month, there will be a brand new kit debuting with coordinating fabrics, trims, and other goodies!These kits are guaranteed to be priced lower than if you would buy all the products separately at retail prices. I am SO excited at what I have to bring you!
  • How much does it cost? 
Sew Coordinated costs $50/month shipped domestically. It will ship in a flat rate padded envelope with free delivery confirmation and insurance. If you are international, it will be $45/month + the cost of a flat rate envelope to you. If you are a member of Mama Made and Beautiful (my fabric retail shop), I am happy to include it with one of your packages!
  • How does it work? 
You can purchase Sew Coordinated as a membership subscription or on a monthly basis. If you choose to purchase on a monthly basis, you do run the risk of the kits being sold out. If you purchase a subscription, you are guaranteed the kit. Subscriptions run for a 6 month time period.
  • What is the cost of being a Sew Coordinated kit club member? 
To become a Sew Coordinated kit club member, you will be charged an initial $10 membership fee. You will be required to pay this fee within 24 hours. After paying the $10 fee, I will send you a link to subscribe to 6 months of Sew Coordinated. You will be automatically billed $50/month for the next 6 months starting immediately.
  • Why is it worth it to become a kit club member?? 
---- You will be guaranteed to get a kit! The first few months of the kit have already been purchased and I only have what I have so if you become a kit club member, you are guaranteed to get the kit during your subscription period! Your kits will come before anyone purchasing month by month!
---- You will get an extra half yard of coordinating solid fabric in your kit every month! The total retail value of this is around $30 for a 6 month subscription!
---- You will have first dibs at all sales, extra kit offerings, and insider info!
---- Because Sew Coordinated is going to be the next big thing and you want in!! There will only be a limited number of kit club subscriptions and once they are filled, you will be added to a waiting list for a subscription!
