Hey friends!!! We are so thrilled to share our new patterns in the Wanderer Collection! We put our heads together to design breezy, easy, and retro inspired summer sets that can mix and match to quickly fill your tween and girls' closets! Living in sunny San Diego, we were inspired by the beautiful beaches, the sun-drenched summer days, and bright colors of the coastline. We know you will quickly fall in love with our newest designs and we are so thrilled to see what you all create!!!

Let's first take a look at Finley, the most darling summer top/dress! Finley can be sewn to be a simple top or a drop waist dress. The bodice has an easy fit with straps that can be fixed or tie in the back. The swing of the drop waist skirt is perfect for twirling in the sun!

Our testers had so much fun sewing up these really precious Finleys!

Next up is Daisy! Daisy is a cute, super fast summer short with a sporty vibe. The front pocket detail is perfect for storing treasures found while taking a beach stroll! The side scoop along the hem adds just the perfect retro touch! With a full elastic waistband, these shorts will be easy for on/off as your kiddos are on the go this summer!

Check out these awesome Daisy shorts sewn by our talented testers! As said earlier, the Wanderer collection was designed to mix and match. Check out how the tops/shorts can be paired to build a capsule wardrobe and give lots of cute combos!


Meet Berklee-

Super fast and easy to wear tie top and swing shorts set. Yes shorts, not skirt!! I know, they look like a skirt but promise they are shorts.

Berklee top is designed to tie on the shoulder for easy on and off. You choose from two top lengths, cropped or regular length. The cropped version with fall just at the bottom of the shorts waistband and the regular fall below the hips. Both are designed with an adorable A-line swing.

Berklee shorts are designed to be carefree, comfortable and stylish. Just like the top, I included two different style option, full width or slim width. Depending on your fabric choice you can choose between a full or slim look. These can even be made with knit! Berklee shorts are designed with an elastic waistband that is made to hit at the belly button. 

Oooooh, and they have POCKETS!!! WAHOOO!
