Sneak Peek - Colorblock dress

Here is a sneak peek at what we have been working on.....
Our colorblock dress
It will be available in sizes 12m thru to 12years

 A simple a line dress with incorporated capped sleeves. Not too "tent" like - especially for the larger sizes!
 Great for using small bits of fabric left over from other projects - this is a super dress pattern to get creative with
We will be asking for testers in the next day or two so watch for it..

NEW -Urban Unisex Hoodie - now in the shop

The wait is finally over!
Our new and improved Urban Unisex Hoodie is now ready in the shop! yay

 We how have sizing 6m thru to 12y!

Some notes on the pattern:
  • The pattern is still slim fit - just the arms are revised and a little less narrow, you should now be able to use this as a great layering piece and as a spring/fall coverup.
  • The instructions are revised and now include helpful hints throughout on working with knits and options to make the sweater your way
  • new 1" printing box to make sure everything is printing up as it should be
