We had an exciting week with several releases in multiple sizes, a big blog post we've been gearing up for, and a contest that's already in progress for Mother's Day. On top of that, we have a new Sew-Along to announce for the coming week, and our weekend sale patterns are two oldies but goodies that you might not have noticed before. How was that for a teaser? It's Weekly Wound Up time!
On Monday we released four new baby patterns! First, Francesca's is a one-shoulder over-the-top dress that is sure to satisfy your ruffle cravings, with a perfect fit on your little one. Second is Baby Lola’s. This pretty halter dress has easy tiers that will give you plenty of twirl and fullness. Baby Danielle’s cuffed shorts have a tied waist and cuffs for a unique touch. Last is Baby Destiny’s Top. This sweet top has three rows of full ruffles and a sweet shirred bodice with ties.
Sparrow's A-Line halter-style pattern is already a trendy favorite in our patterns group after just two days! It is available in both toddler and tween sizes and includes three length options--top, tunic and dress. With its adorable collar, you will NEED this pattern for those warm summer days! Pair Sparrow's with cute shorties and you have a stunning look that is so quick and easy!
Just yesterday we released Peggy's Peplum Dress in toddler, tween, and women's sizes.
Peggy's is a flattering and comfortable knit dress that both you and your daughter will love! The toddler and tween have 2 versions: tie back with flutter sleeve options and scoop back with collar. The women's pattern has the flattering scoop back with collar. Don't miss out on these adorable patterns while they are 30% off!
