IndieStitch April 2024 Unboxing + a 50% Discount Code & May Pattern Spoiler!

Friday, April 19, 2024

I received a complimentary box from IndieStitch in order to facilitate an unboxing post. All opinions are my own. This post may contain some affiliate links. 

Hi, guys! I'm back with an unboxing of the IndieStitch Box for April 2024! IndieStitch is a monthly subscription box for sewing enthusiasts that provides you with everything you need to complete a beginner-friendly clothing project, plus a few fun extras. This month we'll be making comfy Loungewear sets from a pattern that includes a nightgown, cami, bralette, shorts, and capri pants. I also have a fantastic discount code for you and a spoiler for the May pattern! Let's unbox it!

About IndieStitch

Sit back, sew, and savor the joy of making. We handle the sourcing so you can focus on the stitching. Expertly curated women’s clothing projects, premium fabrics, and community support—all in one box.

That’s what makes IndieStitch so special. When you open up your box, you’ll have exactly what you need to get back to sewing for you. 

It's also a fantastic box for sewing beginners who want to jump into making their own clothing. All of the projects offered in the boxes are for a "confident beginner" so even if you're fairly new to sewing, you can complete these projects. 

IndieStitch does a step-by-step Sew Along for each pattern that is uploaded to the Membership Hub every month. In addition to that, the Facebook group sew-along is another way to learn and share and ask questions; It's a lovely little community!

Even if you're a beginning beginner, these kits are 100% doable.

Subscription Options

As you can see above, there are 12-month, 6-month, and 1-month plans and the cost per box goes down with the longer plans. This year we get a new option to pre-pay for the plans for an added discount!

Plus, you can use the code SOUTHERNMOM50 to get 50% off your first box on the 6 and 12-month plans! That's a HUGE savings!

How Does It Work?

  • When you sign up for IndieStitch, you'll provide your size range for the printed pattern that comes in your box every month. 
  • Once subscribed, you'll receive an email around the end of the month (28th - End of Month) to choose the fabric for the next month's pattern. 
  • Your box ships out around the 4th of each month. 
  • You can choose to sew it up on your own using the pattern instructions, use the video tutorials provided in the IndieStitch Membership Hub, and/or join the Sew Along that happens in the IndieStitch Facebook group starting on the Monday around the 14th.
  • Your membership will renew for the next month between the 13th - 15th.
  • The next month's pattern is revealed on the Second Week of the Month on all social media channels (or here on my blog 😉.)

There is an IndieStitch shop where you can buy some of the past boxes, fabrics from past boxes by the half-yard, notions, and the Mystery Pack, a limited-time mystery package of fabrics, tools, notions, threads, and sewing swag from past IndieStitch boxes for just $30!

If you'd like to see some of their past boxes, check out all of my IndieStitch unboxings here.

Monthly Free Gift!

If you complete the current month's project and post it to the IndieStitch Sew Along Facebook group before the end of the month, you will earn a free gift in your next box! Following along and seeing everyone's projects in the group is a great part of the box experience.

April 2024 Pattern

The pattern we're making this month is the Luna Loungewear from Love Notions!

The Luna Loungewear set includes five pieces: a cami, knee-length nighty, bralette, capris, and shorts. The bralette can be worn on its own or paired with the cami and nighty as a shelf bra. The capris and shorts feature an elasticated waistband with optional drawstring, faux fly, and side-seam pockets. The capris and shorts can be made from woven or knit fabrics while the cami and nighty are meant for knits.

Luna Loungewear Features:
  • Meant for knit and woven fabrics
  • 5 pieces: Cami, knee-length nighty, shelf bra/bralette, shorts, and capris
  • Full bust option
  • Optional shelf bra
  • Optional side seam pockets
  • Sizes: XS-5X
  • Skill Level: Confident Beginner

You can never have enough loungewear and I'm so excited to make some new pieces!

The IndieStitch Box comes with a card on top that includes all of the pertinent information for the month including a code that you can use to download a digital version of the pattern and instructions. It gives you the current month's Sew Along dates and a QR code that takes you to the sewing resources for the month. The flip side details the items in your box.

First out is the fabric. I chose the Blush Bamboo Spandex and we received 3 yards of fabric this month.

This pink is very pretty and is so darn soft and drapey! I can't wait to make some comfy loungewear that will be nice and cool this summer. 

We live in a century home in Tennessee, and the thing they don't tell you when buying an old home is that they're incredibly drafty, no matter what you do. That means the hot and muggy southern summers will always find their way indoors to some degree. Having comfortable, breathable sleepwear is a must so I am stoked to make some in this pretty fabric!!

Next out are the notions to help us make our pattern this month. We have a spool of matching Gütermann thread, two machine needles for our knit fabric, and two lengths of elastic: a 1.5" waistband elastic and a 3/4" plush-back lingerie elastic with a scalloped edge! I've never used lingerie elastic so this will be a learning experience for me.

Next out is our printed pattern, the Luna Loungewear from Love Notions. This month there is a separate Full Bust print that you can opt to get if you or someone you sew for has a full bust measurement 4 or more inches greater than your high bust measurement. They're printed on thick copy shop paper so the pattern will last for years to come.

Next out is our first extra, a Wooden Needle Holder. This should be great for on-the-go hand-sewing or embroidery projects. It's very sturdy and well-made with a brass screw cap.

Next is our 2nd extra, a bag of Glitter Sewing Clips. These will come in handy for regular sewing, but especially for fabrics that shouldn't be punctured.

That was the IndieStitch April 2024 box. I really love getting these boxes every month with a cool new clothing project and handy sewing notions, straight to my door. It's always a fun surprise to see what the extras are and they're always good. I can't wait to sew up this loungewear!!!

I absolutely love that they include everything you might need to just get down to sewing, including the correct fabric type, thread, and needles for your machine. We also get a cool, indie pattern. This box is a treasure for home sewists!


So far we know that May's pattern will be the Jessica Tee & Dress from Ellie & Mac!

Meet the Jessica Tee & Dress Pattern, the must-have staple for any wardrobe. Whether you're a beginner wanting to try a new challenge with knits or a seasoned sewist looking for a project that looks good dressed up or down, this pattern has something for you. You can use this pattern year-round with variations for a Tee and a Dress, two necklines, and three sleeve lengths. Plus, this pattern truly flatters every body with a bodice that skims the body from neck to bust and has the perfect amount of ease through the waist and hips. You'll want to sew this in all your favorite colors to suit your unique style. It's sure to become your go-to pattern!

This pattern features:
  • Tee or Dress Length
  • Short, 3/4, and Long Sleeve Options
  • Crew or Scoop Style Neckline
  • 2 Back Bodices: Cut on Fold or with a Center Seam

This may seem a bit basic pattern-wise but we got an email from IndieStitch explaining that for the next 3 months, we'll be focused on flawlessly fitting the basics.

"IndieStitch kits are focusing on fit for May, June, and July with wardrobe building basics, tips, tools, and support for you to build your customized, handmade wardrobe. "

I'm hoping we'll see tutorials to build our fitting skills! I'm always trying to up my sewing game but if you're already at level: expert, you can always switch out May's pattern for a previous pattern.
