Hello Ladies!!! It's Maya here!!!! As you know it is time for school to resume, and what better way to start out the school year than a stunning Back to School Collection with styles from 3 different eras? Leah, Cassie, and I have each created two designs showing styles from the 40's, 50's-60's, and the 70's (that's me!) I have designed the "Retro Back to School Collection". I have always loved Flare jeans and Flowy tops! Even when there was a span when they were no longer in style, you could still find them in my wardrobe! My girls also love the look, as they LOVE Elvis and his flashy fashion sense. So I decided to capture the look in these two Back to school designs!


First up is Amelia!! 

Amelia is a dreamy knit top that features a Hi-Lo hem that can be sewn with or without a ruffle.

Amelia also features three sleeve options. The first sleeve option is the 3/4 length Ruffle Sleeve. The second sleeve option is the Plain Sleeve, which hits above the elbow. And last but not least, the third sleeve option is the dainty little Cap Sleeve. 



Next Up!!!! Presley Flares! 

Presley Flare Jeans feature a snug comfortable fit, with the flare starting right below the knee. The flare is a little more than subtle, but also not large enough to cause difficulty with movement. 


Presley has both Front and Back Pockets, the back pockets have an optional pocket flap.  Flat front waistbands are my favorite!!! So of course that is next on the list of features along with an Elastic back waistband for the perfect snug fit.



One of my FAVORITE features of the Presley Flares is the wide hem!!!!! 


OKAAAAY!!! So now that you have all of the details for my two new designs, I have another announcement! Amelia will be available in Baby, Tween, and Misses as well as Girls!!! EEEEEK! Excitement overload!! 


These testers are incredible and they always AMAZE us all with their talent!!! I can't wait to see what each and every one of you sew up with our new Back to School Collection! We all put lots of love into it and hope it shines through!! I hope you enjoy my Retro Collection featuring Amelia and Presley! You can find inspiration albums for each pattern in the Pattern group, in which tester photos are plentiful!!! 

Now to finish up with some exciting news?!?!?!?!
