Jen and I were so excited to get a chance to review a couple of patterns from this darling company,
Violette Field Threads. They are a darling etsy shop stuffed full of classic, yet hip PDF dress patterns and designs. I had so much fun choosing just which one I would make!
I really felt like I needed to find a dress that had longer sleeves…Ivy’s got a lot of dresses, but mostly they are short sleeve little summer dresses–so this was step one in addressing that problem!
I fell in love with this simple tunic with a fun elastic in the sleeve to jazz it up. So, I give you:
The Audrey Dress
I still consider myself to be a beginner, and this pattern was EASY for me. That’s saying something! I love that it didn’t require crazy fitting and alterations: with the elastic in the neckline and the elastic in the sleeve, I knew that this would fit Ivy! I also made one for my 6 year old niece, and it was easy for me to do the two separate patterns at one time. The instructions were super easy to follow…they were clear, concise and had no crazy tricks…and yet it’s stinkin’ cute!
i love the simplicity, and paired with a pair of leggings the outfit is one of my new favorites!
Go check out Violette Field Threads and see which design strikes your fancy!
and stay tuned for Jen’s review on Thursday!
