It’s finally time to take the wraps off our new fall patterns and give you a preview of them.
This season, we are releasing four new patterns: two dresses, one skirt and top (with a dress option), and one unisex top and pants outfit. Two of the patterns include items designed especially for knits.
The School Photo Dress is a stylish, lined, above-the-knee-length, A-line dress featuring a hidden, on-seam, front kangaroo pocket and an invisible back zipper. The dress comes in two views: one with a stand-away, roll collar and 3/4-length cuffed sleeves and the other (shown below) which includes a cute, feminine ruffle collar and gathered, bias-bound, 3/4-length sleeves.
The Hopscotch Skirt, Knit Top + Dress features an elastic-back waistband skirt with front button placket and an interesting pleated pocket detail inspired by a Chinese takeout container. The pullover top or dress is designed to be sewn with knit fabrics. It includes both long- and short-sleeve options.
The Music Box Jumper is an empire-waist dress that can be worn alone or layered over a blouse or shirt in cooler weather. View A (shown here) presents a softly pleated, mid-calf-length skirt. View B gives an A-line skirt with a single, inverted box pleat at center front and a decorative button tab detail. Both views button or snap up the back. This is also one of the easiest patterns to sew that we have ever written.
The Nature Walk Pullover + Knit Pants pattern includes an easy-to-sew pullover top in a color-blocked design and pull-on style pants with a hidden elastic waist. The top can be made in lightweight fabrics for a casual shirt or in heavier fabrics for use as a layering piece in place of a sweatshirt or jacket. The pants pattern, inspired by a classic yoga pant, is intended for knits. It’s a very versatile piece, and we think it’s going to become a favorite in many kids’ wardrobe because of the style and the comfort it provides when made in a soft knit. It even makes a great pajama bottom.
The patterns will be available in stores worldwide and on our website starting September 7. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to be notified when the patterns begin shipping. Wholesale customers can place pre-orders now by downloading the form from our Wholesale page.
