Now that Spring is officially here, we can finally start removing all the layers and break out the bright colors! I love the fresh looks of spring, and having Easter a little early this year seems to be helping that along. We enjoy seeing all of your Easter outfits popping up in our patterns group -- it's hard to believe we only have one week left to go! We have some fun new spring/summer releases and sales for you this week, so let's take a look.
Ramona's Retro Jumper is the perfect new retro pattern for Spring! It features a ruffle front, flutter straps that can be tied multiple ways, a fitted waist, and of course the amazing split bell bottoms! They even have an optional panel on the bell bottoms where you can use fabric or lace, creating an all-around stunning look for your little girl!
This week we released four new baby patterns! If you love bubble skirts and knot tops, Baby Darcie's Apron Bubble Knot Top is perfect for you! Then Baby Merideth's Center Ruffle Peasant Dress and Top is a sweet and simple top and dress that features an adorable ruffle down the center. Baby Viola's Ruffled Top and Sundress is so perfect for summer on its own, or paired with a cardigan for the cooler months! And finally, Baby Faith's is a sun dress that features a comfy shirred bodice that will grow with your baby.
Donna's Knit Dolman Top is now available in girl sizes! Your sweetie will want to practically live in this top because it is so comfy!
