Hey girls heyyyyy, It's Leah here!!
It's that time of year again! It's back to the school house!!
That means a new wardrobe, lunch pails, new teachers, and homework!!! This is one of my favorite times of the year!!
To start this year off right, myself, Cassie, and Maya came together to design one big FABULOUS "Back to School" collection in 3 different styles! I've designed "The Vintage Back to School Collection". Inspired by the timeless look of the 40s era, my two looks embody "vintage"!  Attention to detail, vintage lengths, and charm of that era have always inspired me! Without further ado, I bring to you Alexandra and Autumn!!
First up is Alexandra!!
Alexandra has a hand tied knot collar, cap sleeve or 3/4 length sleeve with ruffle hem, a plain or pin-tucked bodice, a button down back with NO placket, and last but not least, a blouse or a drop waist dress option!

Next up is Autumn!!
Autumn is a 1940's vintage inspired pinafore with a sweet vintage length, a crisscross basket weave strapped back,
and a low softly squared neckline!
Alexandra can be worn alone, or is absolutely lovely paired with Autumn. 
Here are few inspiration photos that inspired these looks!!
Now let's go get our vintage on ladies and dress to impress!! Below are some of our PHENOMENAL test team photos for some inspiration! Check out our Facebook group for more tester images of Alexandra & Autumn in the albums section of our group. I hope you ladies enjoy Alexandra and Autumn as much as I do!! Now in celebration of "Back to School" there will be a GIVEAWAY of a GIFT CARD: $50 value! How do you enter??? Check out the requirements below. The giveaway will end August 23rd, 2017 at midnight! Wahooooooooooo!!! So much FUN!!

Hello, I just learned about your site through a friend and I want to say I love your designs, photos and the pretty little models. My girls are just a bit too big for these and I sure wish they weren’t…

I love, love, love Alexandria! I made a dress for myself almost like this when I was in 4th grade. I had only been sewing a few months but made it for Christmas in red velvet! I am 58 years old now and have never forgotten how proud of it I was!

Read my mind. I was looking through Pinterest and found a drop waist vintage dress I’d wanted to make for my daughter. I was planning on attempting to alter a VFT pattern but now I don’t have to. Thanks, love it!

At first I was not immediately enthousiastic about the patterns, but the more photo’s I see, the more I start to really love the new patterns. Now I can’t wait to sew some of the pretties for my little daughter. Thanks so much for such beautiful patterns, you manage to inspire me every time.

Autumn is perfectly magnificent!


Christina said:

This set is perfection! I always love the small details on your patterns; they are the reason I swoon when making them. The pin tucks, the tilted peter pan collar with a tie, the lower bodice scoop and ties on the back of the pinafore; I can’t wait to make this!

Alexandra is lovely and so clever how the Autumn creates a faux bib impression with the pin tucked blouse beneath. What a lovely collection!
