Boho Blouse

This airy tunic is suitable for any occasion. You can wear it to the beach as a cover up, or wear over sleek trousers and heels for a night out. The neckline features a mandarin collar and the front slit is finished with a placket that can be a design feature if cut in a contrasting fabric. There are also small bust darts that give the tunic shaping around the top.

Cap Sleeve Blouse (Plus Size)

This is a beautiful blouse for women who like to accentuate their waistline. The cross over bodice and the tying bands define the midriff, while the extended shoulders and attached shaping bands are wonderfully complementary and add visual balance. The cap also add extra coverage to this top pattern but can easily be omitted for a sleeveless design, simply install the armhole facing without the sleeve in between.

Wrap Blouse

The wrapped silhouette and wide boat neckline make this top elegant and suitable for both the office and going out. Have fun with the various layers on the front and make in two different prints for an interesting look. Also try wearing this top with low-rise bottoms to emphasize the slightly asymmetrical and angular hemline. The ¾ sleeves are perfect for showing off some serious wrist jewelry or you can roll up the sleeve hem even more for a more casual look.

Mint Dress

This is a refreshing sporty dress that features side metal zipper pockets and a lovely deep V neckline. The casual length and silhouette easily flatters any body type! You could also try belting this dress for a casual daytime look. The neckline is finished with a facing and the armholes and hemline are secured with hand stitching to avoid any visible topstitching on the dress for a couture finish.

Girls' Sleeveless Dress

A wide pleat mirrors the shape of this A line dress and add the opportunity to sew a contrasting peek-a-boo fabric. The contrast is summery and fun, but you could also layer this piece over a long sleeved tee for a cute fall outfit. The dress pattern has a slit with button along the center back to ease of getting into and the hem is finished with a wide topstitch. The neckline and armholes are finished with bias strips which you can sew internally or externally for additional contrast if they are cut in the same fabric as the inner pleat!

Girls' Pleated A-Line Dress

This will be your new go-to pattern for little girl’s dresses. The A line silhouette is classic and easy to wear, and is also dressed up with a few little pleats that allow for movement. This little dress pattern also has short sleeves, but can also easily be adapted to be sleeveless for the warmer months. It is secured in the back with an invisible zipper and finished with a wide topstitched hem.
