LIMITED EDITION Houndstooth Kit for Sugar Plum

This kit includes everything you need to make your very own houndstooth Sugar Plum

– 4 yards of fabric (2.5 rayon houndstooth for bodice and self lining; 1.5 lycra gabardine for contrast)

– one Sugar Plum pattern (at a discounted rate!)

– one black 22″ invisible zipper

– one hook and eye

A fantastic gift for a seamstress or a great way to break a new sewist into the game! These fabrics are handpicked by the designer and result in a beautiful professional Sugar Plum. Mixing and matching of prints is so in fashion right now!

The fabrics and notions included in this kit are the same ones I used to make my Sugar Plum. You can see pictures of it here.

There is also a limited number of extra yards of the lycra gabardine for those who would like to purchase a little extra to make a matching jacket as I did. Please contact me for details.

FREE SHIPPING for United States!

Only $5 shipping to Canada; $15 shipping everywhere else

Let’s look at my houndstooth Sugar Plum in more detail.

I added bias tape I made from the bodice fabric to the waistband. I love this added touch!

Here is a closeup of the cute gathered sleeve. It also has a gather at the hem. If it is too cutesy for you, it is easy to leave it off and have a regular sleeve!

Here is a closeup of the neck. On this version, I put cut extra neck pieces and sewed them right sides together and turned them out. On all the versions I made of view A, I used a rolled hem on the neckline as per the instructions. But since I did not have serged flounces on this version, I chose to do the neckline this way. I got the idea from the testers!  It is a great variation option.

What do you think? Don’t these fabrics look fantastic together??  You have no idea how long it took to find the exact right combination…but once I found it I just knew it was it!

Stay tuned for the Sugar Plum themed giveaway tomorrow!! For those of you that just want the pattern, the physical pattern is 15% off when you use the code sugar15plum through October 10th!

  1. Simply adorable! Great idea to put together a kit! They do it for needlepoint and knitting…interesting it isn’t thought of more for clothes. Great job!

    • I hope it goes well! It just seems so much easier to have all the matching notions and fabric together than to hunt them all down separately. Especially when it needs unique notions like the buttons on Sugar Plum…or something else fun in the next pattern…!
