spring 2009

Well, hi there! We’re back from Houston, and I have photos to share.

We debuted two new patterns at Quilt Market this fall. Both will be ready in March, and I’m really excited about them.

The first one, the Sailboat Top, Pants and Skirt is great for boys and girls.

The top includes buttons at the shoulders and a shirt-tail hem, both with curved topstitching that looks great in a contrast or coordinating color. This shirt could be sewn from a woven or a knit, and it’s incredibly easy and fast to make.

The cropped pants and skirt both have classic sailor button-front features as well as elastic at the back waistband for a comfortable fit. They’re also very easy and quick to sew.

The second pattern is the Birthday Party Dress, which features three pleats at the center front panel.

The little assymetrical button tab in the front can also be sewn as a big bow, which offers lots of design opportunity for a contrast fabric or a favorite ribbon.

Both patterns will be available in two size ranges: 6 months through 3T and sizes 4 through 8.
