Hello VFT Family!

We are so excited to introduce 3 new patterns with you; Cairo, Elodie and Evelyn for our Spring Collection. 

I am so thrilled to be able to introduce you to Evelyn...

Cold shoulder dresses and tops are a HUGE trend right now and have been for the last year or so. The funny thing is I think it was huge when I was in high school. What was old is new again, right?!!  But the cold shoulder sleeve is only one of the amazing features on this new Evelyn pattern. 

Along with the double layered ruffle sleeves, it also features front and back bodice ruffles making it look like one continuous line.  The faux princess seam is beginner friendly and presents a clean finish with bias tape. 

(Sewn with Liberty of London Lawn Fabric)

Another added feature are the front bodice pintucks. These are actually sewn prior to cutting out the front which cleverly makes it a simpler process with great results. 

(Sewn using Sharon Holland, Art Gallery Fabrics, Bountiful Collection in Voile)

Are you afraid of zippers? Well not any more! The Evelyn tutorial has tons of photos and we walk you through every step! You will be throwing out that button foot and replacing it with a zipper foot before you know it!!

 

One of my favorite designer details is the use of trim for the bodice ruffles and/or sleeves. It added a very special unique touch to the dress.  Love it!!!

Evelyn comes in Kid sizes 2-10 and Tween sizes 10-16.

She works best with fabrics that drape well like voile, lawn, rayon, silk but can also work with seersucker, lightweight chambray, swiss dot and lightweight cottons.

 

One of my FAVORITE features of Evelyn (I am a bit obsessed with) is the vintage 2"-2 1/2" (depending on size range sewn) deep hem! OH MY heart! Swoon!! The skirt also has the option for a lining that enclosed the skirt/bodice seam line.  All seams will then be neatly enclosed, NICE!!!! 

Here is the exciting part for you....

 

Be on the lookout very soon for details on an exciting giveaway! Hint... there maybe some fabric involved. ;)

 Also, 

Make sure you check out the website while the Spring Collection is on sale!!! Use code: SPRINGDRESS for 15% off. 

 

Until next time VFT Family...

xoxo,

Alexis
