Did you miss us? It's been a couple weeks since we sent out a newsletter. I confess that it's all my fault; my husband and I went on a fabulous anniversary trip and there was no "work" allowed. But now we're back all refreshed and I'm happy to once again bring you our Weekly Wound Up! We have a bunch of new releases and announcements to cover; are you ready?
Embry's Apron Peasant Dress is brand new to the scene, and available for Babies, Girls, and Dolls! It is the classic dress you've been looking for, with an added apron that gives even more fullness to this sweet little dress. You can choose from two skirt lengths and three sleeve lengths. Look how cute it is with all those layers!
LaRae's Scalloped Dress and Top is now available in Baby sizes! Your little one will be adorable in this unique design that includes a tie back and a beautiful scalloped skirt. It looks really pretty layered as well!
Also for the babies, we released Baby Eloise's this week! These precious ruffle leggings have a fun and simple design that will be a perfect addition to any season or outfit. Make them super full with all the ruffles or use less ruffles for a simpler design. Baby Eloise's includes a capri length as well.
Now get ready for some new dance wear patterns!
First up we have Carmen's Dance Capris in Girls, Tweens and Womens sizes. These amazing capris have it all, with an elastic waist and unique legs ties. These are perfect for dance, gym, cheer, and so much more!
Next, make your way to dance or cheer class with Lourde's Long Sleeve Wrap Top pattern that has it all. She will love keeping warm with the long sleeves, and there's even a fun little faux sash to tie in a bow. Lourde's pairs perfectly with Carmen's Dance Capris too!
And for our last dance wear releases of this week, we have Karma's Carryall pattern! It is an amazing bag set for girls and boys of all ages. Karma's has it all, with one large bag featuring 3 oversized tie bows, a front pocket and lengthy wide straps for comfort as well as a small bottle bag that also features a snack pocket. Perfect for all of us on the go!
And last, but definitely not least, is Alejandra's Ruffled Maxi Dress! Alejandra's is a gorgeous knit maxi length dress with beautiful ruffles, and it is the perfect dress for all of your special occasions, photoshoots, and more. This dress requires knit for the bodice and skirt; the ruffles can be made with woven, knit, or chiffon. So pretty!
On the Blog
We've had several requests for a tutorial on how to "take in" an existing top or dress. Our new blog post will show you all you need to know to get started learning this skill. You will love the difference it makes in your wardrobe!
With Easter coming up, we wanted to remind you of these oldies but goodies we have on the blog for you! First you can make reversible fabric Easter baskets for the kiddos. Then there's also our Bunny Ear goodie bags that are too cute too pass up. And of course our new Lace Bunny Ears Headband is the perfect addition to any cutie's outfit this holiday. All three patterns are free on the blog! Enjoy!
Our Monthly Mixup for March is all about celebrating Easter and Spring! It features pretty dresses, beautiful tops, and ruffled bottoms that are all quick to make. These designs showcase gorgeous embellishments like ruffles, ruffles, and more ruffles! You can't go wrong with Rory's, Sarafina's, Eloise's, Bethany's, Kadence's, and Tiffany's. These patterns would normally add up to a total cost of $46, but in this Monthly Mixup you will pay only $18 for all 6 patterns! Wow!
