Welcome back for another great post sharing more inspiration and information on the new pattern releases!!!

Today we're taking a closer look at the Modern Playground collection: Tatum & Kensley.

When thinking about Back to School style, we knew that your girls & tweens would want sleeve option as the temperature changes from the heat of summer to the crisp air of fall. We also knew that they would want comfortable clothing but with some really great style details!

Be sure to check back on yesterday's post for the Vintage Study Hall collection and a giveaway! Read today's post for another awesome giveaway!!!!


Tatum is a knit dolman style dress featuring several sleeve length options and a full, gathered skirt. Since the bodice is dolman style, that means no separate sleeve piece needed!!!! This makes for a super fast and super easy sew- perfect for the beginning sewist!

Sew Tatum in a short, 3/4 or long sleeve length for year round wear!

Tatum for tweens is a stylish, comfy and easy wear! The dolman style sleeve is so on trend and your tween will love that her Tatum looks like it could have been purchased at her favorite designer store.


Kensley is perfect for your girly girl! The gorgeous scoop back is so feminine and sweet! The full, gathered circle skirt brings an amazing twirl. So many sleeve options: sleeveless, short, long, and long with ruffle.


Kensley is such a flattering style for tweens with a slim waist and full hemline. 

Now that you're inspired and in need of some great knit fabric, we're going to giveaway a $100 Visa Gift Card . Simply enter the giveaway below!
