We hope you had a nice Memorial Day Weekend! This was also the last week of school for my kiddos and boy are we excited! I know that some of you still have a few weeks left though, so I'll try to keep quiet about it for now. We celebrated by going to the fabric store after school (hooray!) or maybe for my boys it was more about the restaurant afterward. Anyway, whatever is going on in your life this weekend, we hope you enjoy our wound up highlights and new announcements, coming right up!
Cassandra's Colorblock Knit Cascading Ruffle Dress features either a solid bodice or a color-block bodice, which is great for using cute knit panels or an upcycled tee! You can make Cassandra's as a hoodie, a simple t-shirt, or you can go all out and add those fabulous cascading ruffles to make it a dress. You even have three sleeve options to choose from -- what a full and versatile pattern!
There's a lot of style and flair headed your way as we release the much-anticipated Danika's Women's One-Piece Top and Dress!
