New York, New Yo...
Created from the 4-patterns-in-1 Jenny pattern, today’s featured project is an acid yellow floral dress cut from variation D. Available as a single download, this pattern comes with 3 skirt variations (including exciting pattern pieces for suspenders and a dramatic bow) and a dress option, pictured above.
Acid yellow bounced off of the Spring 2010 runways like beams of promising summer sun. This daring color was generously used by design houses such as Pringle of Scotland, Matthew Williamson and Lanvin. I felt like we needed to feature this cute dress in a bright and summery Japanese printed cotton, to show the versatility of this dress, which was originally cut from a printed silk chiffon/charmeuse combination shown in the last image.

Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
