November Pattern of the month- Isla’s Infinity Top & Dress
Hey everyone! I am really excited for this months POM. I posted a poll a few weeks ago over in the FAN GROUP asking what you wanted for Novembers pattern of the month, and of course, Isla took in the most votes. The best part, Isla’s is available in GIRLS and BABY sizes! You can grab yours now for 20% off using coupon code ISLA. This coupon is good for the WHOLE month of November.
Isla’s is perfect for this month. I don’t know about you, but I love a good knit pattern when it starts getting chilly, and so do my girls! It is barely November and we have been hit with lots of snow, and more on the way! (ICKY!!!!!!). I have been driven towards sewing knit patterns a lot more lately so I am excited I can use the POM as an excuse to sew my girls more outfits. Isla’s infinity top/ dress is the perfect go-to knit pattern to achieve many looks, all in one easy to read pattern. This pattern features the option of doing an adorable heart shape cutout in the back, making this dress so adorable. Don’t want the heart cutout? Choose to do the simple back option. Choose from 3 bodice lengths: Curved (for a slight high low effect), straight and Drop waist. You can choose from gathered skirt or circle skirt in tunic and dress lengths. The skirt can be made with woven or knit fabric. Choose from 6 sleeve options! Tank, flutter, short, elbow, 3/4 or long sleeves. You can also choose to add ruffle sleeves in either a gathered ruffle or a circle flounce. The option to add ruffles down the center of the bodice add a cute feminine touch. The sleeves and bodice ruffles can be made in knit or woven as well. And, to top it off, you can add side seam pockets to the dress length skirts so littles can store all their little treasures they collect. This bodice is fully lined so there are no binding to fiddle with. This pattern is rated advanced beginner for the heart back but is a beginner pattern if you do the simple back.
October was a pretty busy and crazy month for us so I don’t have any hacks ready to post yet (they are all sitting on my camera flash card). Don’t worry though, I have some fun posts throughout November for the Isla, starting with this gorgeous high/ low peplum hack. I will have a video posted soon on how to achieve this. Also, I will be doing a full sewing video of the Isla for those that might be afraid of the construction process (don’t sweat it, it is super easy).
