Sewing for Summer

_DSC0282Are you “sewing ready” for summer?? With the craziness of end of the year school parties, recitals, and sports banquets, it can surely sneak up on you. This past week Violette Field Threads revamped a couple of previously released patterns and put all of their shorts on sale for $5!! Fawn, a stylish bubble and wide leg short got a “slimmer” makeover and Lucy, a full length pant and capri had a shorts cutting line added along with a shorts ruffle. We re-tested Lucy and the shorts option.

_DSC0302Pictured above is the Lucy short under the Paige dress; Lucy is a great relaxed fit short, capri, and full length pant pattern that can stand on it’s own, but also goes great as an option under dresses. We have so many dresses that would look so cute with a tiny ruffle peeking out from underneath. They also work great paired with any of the Violette Field Threads tops, Like Lola (pictured) made as a top. The cross back straps are perfect for summer play.

_DSC0288The Lucy short is a relaxed fit short, making it more comfortable for play and with the modest ruffle, falls just to the knee. It requires less than a yard and take less than an hour to sew, I can see myself making many of these for this summer to coordinate with Bug’s many summer tops and dresses. Lucy is available in sizes 2T through girls 9/10 and is certainly a closet staple year round. Get your copy today and happy sewing!!
