Back to School- ready or not another school year is about to begin, or for some of you, it has already started. 

VFT Team is excited to share with you the first of three Back to School Patterns, meet Brynn. She is a modern take on a classic silhouette.  Brynn features a boatneck neckline, dropwaist dress or top with buttons (or snaps) down the front.  The dropwaist dress features an asymmetrical bodice seam line. You can choose between a set-in short sleeve or sleeveless finish. 

Make sure to read all the way to the end to be entered into the giveaway!

Brynn will come out in both Child and Tween size ranges. 

We were so VERY VERY lucky to collaborate with Maureen Cracknell and Art Gallery Fabrics on this Back to School Collection. Maureen's, Autumn Vibes Fabric Collection was the perfect pairing with Brynn. Maddie and Amaya. 

Thank you also to Wunderkin, Co for the amazing bows you see in the photos. Aren't they the perfect finishing touch!!?!! 

(Fabric shown here is: Foxes in Fall, Fall in Love Warm, Midfall Trellis Pumpkin and Autumn Nectar Mist)

(Fabric shown here is: Floral Glow Cocoa)

 Brynn can be made with either buttons or snaps. No matter which one you choose it is best to iron on lightweight interfacing. This will help with stabilizing the front bodice overlap as well as the neckline. 


Here is some inspiration for you!!

I’m excited to make the dress for my two year old and the top for my tween. Love it!


Tammy said:

The dress is darling but I’m super excited about the top version. My oldest is more interested in skirts/pants than dresses. Cute shirts are hard to find so an option other than a tee is great.
