{Fabric Fix} Review & Pattern Giveaway

*This box was sent to me in exchange for the review.  All thoughts are mine.
I'm no stranger to monthly sewing box subscriptions, but there's a new kid on the block.  Fabric Fix has kicked off their debut month.  When Emily contacted me to review it here, I couldn't pass it up!

Each month, you'll receive a box of sewing surprises -- high quality fabrics from leading designers, coordinating trims and notions.  There are 3 subscription sizes so you can pick which one fits either your sewing needs and/or budget.  Each have a minimum of 3 month commitment, with an initial $10 sign up fee  (For more details, see below).

This month's box featured Riley Blake and Create Kids Couture.

Kit contents:

With 4 yards of fabric and two smaller-than-average daughters, I can definitely pull off a sister set -- unfortunately, I only had half of the set complete when Mother Nature threw us a bonus weather day. So, for now, you'll get to see half.

 While, the kit included a pattern -- Willow's Wrap Jacket -- it doesn't quite match the style my girls prefer.  Instead, I turned to another Create Kids Couture pattern that my oldest would love - Brewster's Bubble Skirt. It features a folded yoga waistband, two large, elasticized side pockets and is finished off with a banded hem.  It's quick, easy, and my Bodkin made threading the elastic in the pockets a breeze.

For this skirt, I used Lulabelle Main Navy and Petal Pink.  Then I added a coordinating pink solid cotton Lycra for the waistband.  {The waistband normally gets folded in half, but how fun is it pulled all the way up?  I used to wear little tube tops in the summer when I was growing up!}

I used the Sulky Petite thread to top-stitch all my seams.  This thread has a nice thick weight to it -- it's actually intended for hand embroidery.  I will have to see how it looks on free-motion-applique too!

After sewing, I dug through my daughter's accessories to complete the outfit.  I added Cami's Tank by Simple Life Pattern Co, a jean jacket, Barbie necklace by Paradise Designs, knee-high socks, and finished it off with tall brown boots and a large pink mum hair accessory.  She loved it so much, she wore it for Class Picture day at school this week.  At nearly 7. she's at the age where the outfits I make need to portray how "cool" she is.  HA!  #nailedit

My youngest daughter is getting a new dress out of the {Mint} colorway, but I've not photographed it yet.  I'll be sure to share the final result as soon as I can.

{Fabric Fix} Sewing Subscription Sizing:

2 yards of fabric + 1 notion = $35

2 - 3 yards of fabric + 2 notions = $45

3 - 4 yards of fabric + 3 notions = $55

One final thing before I go...

Willow's Wrap Jacket needs to find a new home...
