Hello VFT Family.
The Black Friday Sale is one our biggest events of the year and this year will be no different. We have several new patterns coming to the VFT Library and I am here to introduce you to one of them... 
Blithe is a Hi Lo Elegant dress that can be made with Tulle, Lace, Satin, Lightweight Neoprene and even cotton for a more causal feel. 
One of my favorite  and very special features of Blithe is the tulip sleeve. I mean hello, don't you just love a tulip sleeve! This is a sleeve that I have been admiring for years so when it came time to design the sleeve on Blithe I knew this was the perfect match! It is a play off of the curves on the back skirt. 
 Few more details:
*Size: 2-9/10 (Tween Sizes will be released in Dec)
*The dress is not only beautiful on the outside but also on the inside with enclosed seams.
Style A- Simple Cotton:
Style B: Tulle or Tulle/Lace/Mesh Fabrics:
Style C: Thick Fabric- Ruffle Fabric/Rosettes
 I love that Blithe can be made with super fancy fabrics or simple cotton. No matter what fabric you choose your little one will be on point! 
Here are some Tester photos:
 Blithe will release during the Black Friday Sale starting Nov 22nd!!!
Be sure to stop by our Facebook group to see more inspiration and to keep up with all the happenings. 
But WAIT! There is more...
