VFT Fall Boho Collection: Luna, Odette, and Julianna

In August, Violette Field Threads released a collection of patterns for their “Fall Preppy Line:” Mackenzie (skirt), Belle (long or short sleeved blouse, Josie (dress jumper), and Pepper (collared dress). In September they have come back to team up with Bari J. and released their “Fall Boho Line:” Giselle (kimono top), Odette (ruffled dress or top), Julianna (knit dress or top), and Luna (dolman style top or dress). I was able to test three of the patterns and will review them for you.

Dress it up or down, add lots of trim in the form of pom poms, lace, ric rac, or piping. Luna’s bodice is an easy pull over style dolman with a tied back closure. No buttons, zips, or snaps! Large, fun pockets top this look like a cherry on top of a cool, delicious milkshake.

Add a sash or side ties or leave it plain, it is sure to be a stunner! The Odette dress or top is fully lined for full comfort and encloses all those pesky seams. The bodice leaves plenty of room for an appliqué, embroidery, or initials. The back opening is an easy peasy keyhole that can be tied off using bias binding, ribbon, or fabric. Available in sizes two through girls ten.

For those colder days and nights, Julianna can be worn with pants or you may choose to sew Julianna as a knit dress with full circle skirt and tights and boots. Available in sizes two through girls ten, both the top and dress bodice are fully lined for comfort. We chose to sew Julianna as a top and love the very slight boatneck style neck opening. Instructions are for a long sleeve or gathered three quarter sleeve, but it can easily be adjusted to suite your needs.
