I love SPRING!

I love new things, new colors, warmer weather and no more snow!  Due to my love of the changing season I also love to make warm weather dresses. Thank goodness we’re celebrating Spring with this tour and SALE!

We’re highlighting two lovely dress patterns in our repertoire.  Don’t forget to enter the GIVEAWAY at the end of this post sponsored by 5oo4 and Sly Fox Fabrics!  You won’t regret it!

Also, because we love you we’ve got some awesome FREE spring cut files new on the site.  Get ’em HERE!

Let’s get right to today’s patterns:

Women’s Virginia Tank & Maxi

I don’t always love to wear dresses, but when I do…I wear the Virginia. It can be both sporty and beautiful depending on my mood.  I can pair it with sneakers, heels, or flip-flops.

Here are the details:

The Women’s Virginia Tank & Maxi is a PDF sewing pattern, not a finished product.  This pattern can be made as a dress or as separates.

Options Include:

  • Tank top with optional built-in bra
  • Separate full bust adjustment (FBA) pattern pieces for the tank and bra
  • Knee length or Maxi length skirt
  • Skirt can be made from woven or knit fabric
  • Tank top has two neckline options in the front and two neckline options in the back
  • Dress can be made with knit waistband or elastic casing
  • Maternity option
  • Pockets!
  • Sizes XXS-5XL

Fabric Talk:

This pattern requires light to medium weight fabric with at least 25% stretch. Lycra will help a garment hold its
shape. Cotton lycra, jersey, brushed poly, ITY, or rayon spandex blends will all work well for the main parts of
this pattern. Nylon, Polyester, or Cotton lycra with good recovery and 50% stretch is required for the bands for
the tank and the waistband of the skirt (or dress option with a waistband). Please ensure that your bands have
excellent recovery! In addition, the skirt may be made with woven fabric.
For the Maternity Tank, I highly recommend using a fabric with 50% 4-way stretch so it is long enough to cover
your bump!
Measurements are based on 55-60” knit fabric width and in yards.

Fortunately Sly Fox Fabric has you covered!

Girls’ Virginia Tank and Maxi

This dress pattern is a real addiction!  My girls love it so so much.

Here are the details:

Some of them like to dress up and some of them don’t.  I love the GIrls’ Virginia Tank & Maxi because the options help me please more of my girls!  My six-year-olds love to pick out their own fabric and demand that I make them something.  One will want a maxi dress and the other will want a knee length skirt with a separate tank!

Options Include:

  • Tank top with optional built-in bra
  • Knee length or Maxi length skirt
  • Skirt can be made from woven or knit fabric
  • Tank top has two neckline options
  • Dress can be made with knit waistband or elastic casing
  • Pockets!
  • Sizes 2-18

    I can’t thank you enough for this opportunity and I really hope I did it right due to battling the flu thanks to hubby and my world is upside down right now.
