The Joy Jacket hardware kits are here! Now that you have your pattern and you’ve selected your beautiful fabric, the next step is to source trims and hardware. To make it easy for you, we are offering two trim kit options for your Joy.

Heidi – Handmade Frenzy
Tencel Twill – La Mercerie
Kit color recommendation – Slate Blue

Starting today, the kits will be available in the shop for pre-sale at a discounted price. The pre-sale orders will close in one week on March 2nd. After the orders from the pre-sale have been filled, we’ll only have a limited number of kits in stock.

Tencel Twill – Blackbird Fabrics
Cotton Lawn – La Mercerie
Kit color recommendation – Light Grey

Both kit options will be available in seven different colors, and the zippers will be available in two length options of  26” and 28”. We recommend a size 26” zipper length for sizes 0-6 and a 28” zipper length for sizes 8-18. When choosing a trim set, you can opt for a matching or a contrast color to your main fabric. A quick note: only about 1/8″ of the zipper tape will be visible on either side of the teeth. You won’t see too much of it, so don’t worry if your zipper color doesn’t end up being a perfect match.

    So out of curiosity, what color would you pair with the Blackbird Fabrics Tencel Twill II in Auburn? Obviously it would have to be a contrast – just curious what your opinion is 🙂

      I just checked it against the samples I have and I would go with Camel but Beige works too. If you want to send me a DM on Instagram I will send you a photo of both.
