Leah’s Wrap Top

Sizes 2t – 12

Difficulty Level: Advanced Beginner

Featuring 4 different sleeves (tank style, short sleeve, puff pleated short sleeve & long sleeves), it can be your go-to pattern all year. This sweet wrap top is a true style wrap that ties at the hip in a cute bow (or opt for just a knot, if you are not into bows). Leah’s top was designed for woven fabrics but works very well in knit with no modifications.

Lexi’s Strappy Back Dress and Maxi

Sizes 2t – 12

Difficulty Level: Advanced Beginner

Featuring a modest scooped V front and 3 straps on each shoulder, it is a perfect summer dress. Choose between simple skirt (for both dress and maxi versions) or you can choose to do the horizontal pleats at the bottom to really add some detail to the skirt portion (both dress and maxi versions). This dress also features side seam pockets, perfect for all those little treasures kids collect. The bodice is fitted and has one button (or snap) in the back.

Polly’s Drop Waist Skirt

Sizes 2t – 12

Difficulty Level: Beginner

Polly is short, just-above-knee length skirt pattern that is perfect for beginner sewists without looking like a beginner pattern. With a simple elastic waistband and a short drop waist, this skirt is perfect for layering with sweaters or pairing with a simple tee or tank. The skirt has two finish options, with a band or ruffle border along the drop waist, to personalize your look. Use the simple version to show off your favorite fabric, or the paneled version to clear out your scraps!

Tilly’s Circle Skirt

Sizes 2t – 12

Difficulty Level: Beginner

Tilly has three waistband options to choose from: woven waistband with elastic casings, knit yoga style waistband & a knit fold over waistband. Use your favorite woven print and make it super comfy with a yoga waistband, or opt for all woven or all knit. Tilly also features the option for a double layer skirt, which really creates a fantastic look.
