With the end of summer comes back to school and fall.  We know that for some summer is still in full swing, but cooler weather, shorter days, and football games are quickly approaching.  

We are so excited to be bringing you the first 2 patterns of our fall collection.  Please welcome Matilda and Rosemary.

Paired together, these patterns give a gorgeous vintage feel.  Wear them separately and they are equally adorable

Matilda twirlMatilda spin

Matilda is the perfect traditional peasant dress.  This dress features a gathered waist with a very full skirt, perfect for twirling.  You little lady will adore this dress because it is not only comfortable, but fun to wear.

With three sleeve options we have all the seasons covered.  Flutter, short cap, and 3/4 length sleeves are all included.  We are sure there is something for every occasion.  It's the perfect dress for an outing to pick apples, or to play outside.

12m-10years size rangesisters in Matilda dress

The Matilda dress comes in a size range of 12M-10 years!  A perfect dress suitable for little ladies as well as young girls.


Rosemary is the epitamy of vintage.  This vintage inspired pinafore comes in sizes 12M-10 years and is the perfect layering piece for fall.  It looks darling over the Matilda dress, but we think this could become a very special look if paired with jeans and a cute top too.

collar and pintucks

The fold-over collar and pin-tucked bodice are darling vintage accents we just can't get enough of.

The pleated skirt come in two lengths, long and short, for two lovely looks. And the side ties are so sweet.  Who doesn't love a good bow!

slipromsemary and slip

During testing, our amazing testers shared with us their love of these patterns, but also their own ideas on how it could be worn.  We quickly realized that Rosemary is even more sweet layered with a slip.  So along with this pattern you will receive a slip pattern that can be worn underneath this darling pinafore!
