Are you are becoming well acquainted with our 2018 Spring Dress Collection yet? There has been so much sharing in our Facebook group over the last few days. So, without further adieu, we'd love to introduce you to our addition to the collection: Isobel.

Isobel embodies the essence of Violette Field Threads.... innocence, beauty, and precious childhood.  Isobel was inspired from a bygone era when little girls twirled and skipped in pinafores and dresses for every occasion!



Isobel is a pinafore style dress and top that features a soft square front and back neckline with side panels and optional side ties.  The bodice can include squared  flutter sleeves, and is also exceptionally cute with the lace or trim embellishments.


The back overlaps and  buttons up with either four or six buttons. This provides for an adjustable fit.


What is even more to love?!  Isobel is available in not only girls but baby sizes as well!!  We are just in love with the beautiful sister sets.


The Isobel skirt can be sewn as a single skirt or a double skirt with added bottom ruffle.  The double skirt provides exceptional twirl!!


 Does your little love have a dollie she likes to dress up? Isobel also comes in doll. 


We hope you are as excited about Isobel as we are!! 

Would you like to win a copy of both Girls and Baby Isobel along with a $40.00 gift card from Hawthorne Threads Fabrics? Enter the giveaway below!

This is my favorite new pattern. Very retro. I had a dress similar to this when I was a child.

I’m pretty sure I have a vintage floral sheet saved just for this occasion!


Jessie said:

I may have to stick to using some of my stash for Isobel, although, if I have a busy week, I may be able to sneak out and buy some new fabric, but I have no clue what line it will be. Maybe I will get brave and order online.

Beautiful! Love this and the Kennedy dress.


Heather said:

I have to confess that I had to catch my breath when I saw your new dress. Not because it’s absolutely lovely (it is), and not because I’m longing to make it for my precious four-year-old daughter and new baby niece-to-be (I am), but because of the name. My firstborn was named Isobel. My husband chose the spelling because he thought it was such a soft name that it would be difficult to say in any voice other than a loving one. Unfortunately we only were able to say it for a little while, because Isobel died shortly after she was born. I will absolutely be buying this pattern to sew, and I will think of my precious little girl as I do. What a gift to see her name on something so beautiful.

I love to know where to purchase the lace trim and panels used in creating the beautiful dresses. Where to buy quality fabric would be helpful too. Thank you
