Aria’s bow back top and dress is loaded with so many options. Choose from the bow back version or a simple back version. The bow back version also includes 2 types of backs. A short panel (shows skin) and a tall modest panel (covers skin). Sleeves: first, choose from a fitted sleeve cap or a gathered “poof” sleeve cap. Both of those options include short sleeves, 3/4 sleeves & long sleeves. You can also do a tank version, flutter sleeves or flutter with long sleeves. (whew….. thats a lot of sleeve options right!) Now on to the skirt options: gathered or circle skirt. Top or dress length. Dress length also includes the option of a gathered or circle skirt with a ruffle hem. The circle skirt with ruffle hem will light up and girls eyes with the amazing twirl factor. If you love the Isla, you will love the new Aria.
New to knit? Don’t worry!! The pattern has helpful tips and tricks to make sewing with knits a breeze! You learn about what type of knit to buy, the preferred needles for sewing knits, and which stitch to use on your sewing machine. The best part about knits is that they don’t fray, so it is not necessary to hem them, although that is an option explained in the patterns. You’ll find that sewing knits is much faster than sewing wovens! These patterns will help you jump in and discover a love for knits (if you haven’t already)!
