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!!
