It’s finally time to take the wraps off what we’ve been working on in the studio for the last several months and give you a preview of our new fall patterns.
This season we’re releasing a cute little shirtwaist dress and a jacket that can be made up in several different ways—as a lightweight fall jacket, as a raincoat, or as a winter coat that comes complete with a removable quilted lining. Both patterns have been designed to be very versatile, and both include many different options.
The Jump Rope Dress pattern is a shirtwaist dress featuring a rounded collar and front placket detail. The pattern includes two styles. The short sleeve style (shown above) features a folded cuff with sleeve tab, slightly dropped waist, gathered skirt, and a self-sash with belt loops. The long sleeve style features A-line shaping and bias trimmed gathered patch pockets.
The School Days Jacket & Coat pattern can handle the elements as either a hooded raincoat or a winter jacket for both boys and girls. The pattern features patch pockets and choice of duffle or button tab closure details. The pattern also comes with instructions for making an optional removable quilted lining that can be created with or without sleeves for additional warmth.
Both patterns will be released in our two size ranges: 6 months through 3T and sizes 4 through 8. They will be available on our website and at select quilt shops starting Tuesday, September 8.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be posting more in-depth descriptions of both patterns, complete with photos of the variations and interesting details on each.
