If you like big sales, exciting announcements, and really great new patterns then this week's recap is going to be a good one for you! Let's take a look:
Michael's Muscle Tee is a must-have for spring and summer! Your boy will love the comfy fit and it comes with an optional chest stripe to mix and match with his favorite shorts. Michael's is a super quick and easy sew and you'll soon find that your boy wants one for every day of the week!
This magical pattern is Pixie's Petal Dress and it comes with a bonus flower tutorial for the perfect icing. We don't need to say much more about this dress - we can all see how amazing it is!
We released two new Tween patterns this week. First is Daphne's Bubble Skirt, which has a flat front waistband, an attached sash, and options for either a shirred or elastic waistband. The second tween pattern is Isla's Knit Ruffle Shorts and your daughter is going to want several pairs of these comfy shorts!
Tabitha's Knit Top and Dress was released just yesterday! Tabitha's has a sleeveless and short sleeve optiona and a new scoop neck style. There are also three skirt options included: simple straight skirt, ruffled, or trim band. There are also optional bodice ruffles.
