Hey friends!!! We're back with another stellar release of girls & tweens patterns just perfect for Back to School sewing!!!

Today we'll take a look at the Vintage Study Hall Collection: Harper & Lulu. Check back tomorrow for more inspiration and information about the Modern Playground Collection: Tatum & Kensley. Be sure to read all the way through both posts, as there may be something special for you at the end!!!

The Vintage Study Hall collection was designed to fit the Violette Field Threads style of sweet details, vintage charm and of course great showcasing of your favorite fabrics!


Harper is a dolman style bodice with optional rounded collar and vintage style neckline. The waist darts of the bodice bring a tailored look to the often boxy shape of a dolman bodice.

The skirt features optional pockets perfect for storing treasures! To really bring in a vintage touch, the girls pattern includes an optional waist sash that really sets off the look with some piping trim!

Harper is also great for your tween- giving a mature and classic look.

Harper can be sewn as a special occasion dress as shown by two of our testers here.

Or, Harper can be sewn in quilting cotton for a more everyday look. 


Lulu is a high-waisted full circle skirt pinafore. The straps can be secured with a ribbon tie or a button tab.

The skirt closure is a simple zipper. Lulu layers beautifully with Harper or your other favorite VFT dresses. 

Your little girl will love the twirl factor that Lulu brings!

Lulu for tweens is all the rage on Pinterest and with favorite IG style bloggers. A high waisted skirt is super in trend, and the circle skirt creates a slim waist with a full hemline for a really flattering shape.

We hope you'd love getting a closer look at the Vintage Study Hall collection. Come back tomorrow for the Modern Playground.
