Heeeey Girlies!!! Reese joined the Violette Field Threads catalog almost 2 weeks ago!  As you all know, my personal style of designing tends to have a boho/vintage vibe!!! My latest design fits right in..... Reese is going to be a staple this Fall, having 3 sleeve options that can adapt to the season change!! Here are a few details about Reese!!!! 

My favorite part of this design are the sleeeeeeeeeves! Here is the first sleeve option! The short flounce sleeve....  boy is it a beauty!!! So dainty and girly! Rayon is my go to for this option, the drape is perfection! 


Next up..... The 3/4 length bell sleeve... gorgeous, gives a totally different look, and transitions so well for the cooler weather coming soon! (well, hopefully, you never know in Mississippi....)



Last, but certainly not least.... The long bell sleeve!! So DREAMY!! This option is a show stopper! My girls are in love with these sleeves, as am I!!




Reese also features a half circle skirt and a zipper closure, making it such a fast and satisfying sew!!!


I hope you love Reese, and I absolutely LOVE seeing all of your creations you share in our pattern group! Happy Sewing!!

Love patterns with options like Reese’s sleeves and lengths. It makes one feel downright thrifty! My favorite fabric find was yards and yards of quilted fabric that I am still using after making lots of little girl bathrobes and purses and zippered bags. The find was at a yard sale for $.50/yd!!!

I think I would make the flutter sleeve option and style it with just a simple pair of ballet flats – because let’s face it, anything else my girls will just pull off!

Catherine Gynn

Catherine Gynn said:

The shorter sleeves on Reese would be perfect for my 2 yo grandie. We’ll make longer sleeves when she is older – and less messy!

This pattern is gorgeous! I might be willing to attempt a zipped for it

I bought both reese patterns sizes and am loving this sew! Really satisfying you say? You’re absolutely correct! Satisfying because reese goes together so quickly as there are no gathers in the skirt, and the sleeve options are so fun! I have ideas for some mash-ups!
