Well, this is it. The final weekend before school starts around here. I can't believe how fast the summer flew by! It was a fun one though and we do still have some warm weather left. And if you're looking for some more fresh styles for late summer and early fall, we definitely have some coming your way! We had some great new releases this week, plus a few announcements you won't want to miss. Here goes!
First of all, we have some new cut files. Have you jumped on the vinyl train yet? We have four fun new designs to cover Mom, Dad, Grandma, the kids, and the whole family! So many options to make each design your very own; from a simple retro poodle to an intricate jelly fish. We even have a file to boost your confidence with a little modest bragging swag.
Also, Lilou's Stripwork Dress just released! Lilou is perfect to showcase all your favorite fabrics or use your scraps from projects past. It features a knee-length skirt, options for a pieced or solid bodice, and wider straps that make it appropriate for school, church, and play. Subtle arm cutouts and a buttoned back provide a fitted bodice, but still enough room to layer for year round use. Plus, it's simply adorable!
Friday's new releases pair perfectly together to finish out these dog days of Summer, and both can transition straight into fall with a little bit of layering! Kaelani's Reverse Crop Top gives you two gorgeous looks with its fully reversible design! Featuring an adorable tie closure in the back and a moderate mid-drift crop in the front. Norleen's Neatly Pleated Shorts are sure to add some extra style to your little fashionista's wardrobe. Featuring stylish lapels at the front waist band, accent pockets, box pleat detail and flared legs. Both Kaelani's and Norleen's are on sale for 30% off through Sunday!

We will be starting bright and early on Monday morning, or you can sew the steps at any time that works for you. Did we mention prizes?!
