Outside my window right now there are ginormous snowflakes drifting down. It's that time of year, ready or not, and it looks like everyone in our patterns group is in full swing preparing for the holidays ahead. Whether you are sewing for Thanksgiving or the holidays after that, we have some fun patterns and tutorials that can help you out!
Noah's Knee Patch pants are a new must-have for your little guy! Make them with or without the trendy patches. The waist is a flat front with elastic back for a classy look, and the pants have an option for elastic at the bottom of the pant legs. Our testers were hesitant about the elastic hem at first but ended up LOVING them! They're so cute and the boys love how they feel. (Don't tell the boys, but they are adorable on girls too.)
On Wednesday we released four new doll patterns! First, there is Blair's Bustled Knot dress. It is all business in the front with a party in the back but seriously cute all the way around! Secondly, there is Grace's Twirly Knot Dress. It also has the option to make it the length of a top to go with her favorite pants. Third is Demi's Ruffled Peasant Dress. It has three sleeve lengths and is such an easy outfit to sew! Lastly, there is Annabelle's which is perfect for dressing your doll up as your daughter's favorite princess. Just in time for Christmas!
Just yesterday we released our Priscilla's Ruched or Cuffed Leggings, with a ruched side option or buttoned cuff! It does include a full cut line if you want to make just simple leggings without a cuff or ruched side. These leggings are a SLIM cut so you must use a 40-way lycra fabric with at least a 75% stretch to ensure they will fit properly. These are not a loose fit like our other legging patterns. Priscilla's is on sale for 30% off for just a little bit longer so grab it while you can!
