Genevieve- $5 Friday and New Bodice Option

Hello friends!

Meet Genevieve, wait no, let me reintroduce you to Genevieve!

Meet Zoey

Hello VFT Family! 

Alexis here and I would love to introduce you to ZOEY! Zoey is the lasted addition to the VFT pattern lineup.  Here is a little rundown to our new pattern...

-Sizes Child 2-9/10 AND The Tween 10-16

-Long sleeve (finished just above the wrist) and elbow (finished just below the elbow)

-Knee length dress

-Maxi Length dress that features a ruffle

-Snap front closure

-Elastic waist

-Elastic finish on the sleeves

-Bias tape neckline

-Bias tape front

When I started designing Zoey, my daughter and I both wanted an bohemian maxi dress that she could wear for Thanksgiving. Right around the same time Indie Folk by Pat Bravo and Art Gallery Fabrics was introducing as her new collection. I immediately knew Zoey and Indie Folk belonged together. Pat's collection provided that last finishing touch to bring my vision to life!

Let's bring on the photos!!!

{Spring Dress Collection} Wrap Up and A Giveaway!

Have you been following our mini blog series showcasing each of the new Spring Dress Collection patterns? If not, be sure to hop back and check out the previous posts! 

We're wrapping up the series with a lovely photo spread of all three patterns together, maxi style, featuring the *new and coming soon* rayon substrate from Hawthorne Threads

From left to right: 

{Elodie} in Parapluie Sailor Stripe in Gold (Rayon) and white gauze, single layer maxi length 

{Evelyn} in Parapluie Sailor Stripe in Ink (Rayon) and Au Printemps in Indigo (Rayon) for the ruffle, maxi length

{Cairo} in Parapluie Sailor Stripe in Tulip (Rayon)

The girls area also wearing headbands and hair wraps made with Bicyclette in Paris

The Rayon substrate is coming soon to Hawthorne Threads for their gorgeous in-house collections and is a must have for this spring and summer! The drape is perfect for sewing apparel fabrics, isn't too slippery to cause difficulty when trying to line up finicky prints like these sailor stripes, and is so soft and cool in warmer temps! 

The back of the new Cairo pattern is sooo dreamy with crocheted lace and the sweet Sailor Stripe. The Cairo pattern is available in girls (2-10), baby (0-3 mos through 24 mos), tween (10-16) and 18" doll sizes!

The Evelyn pattern features gorgeous bodice ruffles and the super on-trend cold shoulder sleeve ruffle. I love how Alexis played with the direction of the stripes to really make this dress pop! 

The Elodie pattern is so sweet in an everyday version with the Sailor Stripe in Gold and opaque white gauze. Perfect for the beach! 

For this shoot, we set out to the La Tour (aka The Tower) at Victoria Beach in Laguna Beach, CA. La Tour is French for "The Tower" and was a nice ode to the French influence of the fabrics. The sailor stripe from the Parapluie fabric collection fit with the beach setting. The trio of stripe colors complimented our sun-drenched ocean view perfectly. 

And, because we know many of you have scooped up the patterns during the sale (wait, you didn't??? Hurry because the sale ends Monday, April 3rd! Use coupon code "SPRINGDRESS") and now need some great fabric to sew with...

We've teamed up with our wonderful friends at Hawthorne Threads and Art Gallery Fabrics to give you a chance to win some new fabric!!!!

New Pattern- Baby Pepper

New Pattern- Baby Pepper

It is a GIRL! Congratulations!

We are so excited to welcome to the family, Baby Pepper!

Hello VFT Family, Alexis here taking over the blog and sharing my latest pattern. The well loved and very popular Pepper pattern has now shrunk to baby sizes. lol

Sizing: 0-3 mos, 3-6 mos. 6-12 mos, 12-18 mos and 18-24 mos.


She is just like the bigger sizes and comes with the cutest petite collar and a full gathered skirt. Baby Pepper also includes a placket to help with the ease of dressing those wiggly bodies. :)


Baby Pepper also comes with 3 sleeve lengths Full, 3/4 and above the elbow. All season sleeves, right??!!!

(Above the Elbow)

(3/4 Sleeve)

(Full Sleeve)

Of course every good Pepper Dress needs a pocket (you never know what those babies will put in there. ;)

(Yes, that is a Lego guy in the pocket. That is what happens when you have a boy in the house.)

Baby Pepper comes in two lengths:

Dress Length- Finishes 1- 1 1/2" above the knee

Top Length which is SOOOO cute with bloomers! That is seriously one of my favorite "looks" when I was sewing for my own Etsy shop. It was also one of the most popular sellers.

I swear I could eat up all the adorable babies every time their amazing Mommas posted pics in the tester group. One thing is for sure they don't sit still to pose.  Right ladies???!!! Hahahaha!

If this was not exciting enough we are offering one person a chance to win the  Baby Pepper pattern and 4 yards of Art Gallery Fabric's newest collection, CAPSULES! 1 yard of 4 of the Capsules prints.
