The clean lines of "this shirt" are sure to draw positive attention. Its bateau neckline has a slightly deeper neckline in back, though it is still a style that can be easily worn with a brassiere. To keep the shoulders from dropping, a narrow fabric band connects the shoulders.
"An elegant shift dress" with sporty details. The fabric bands at the waist fasten together and lay toward the bodice. Raglan sleeves shape the shoulders beautifully and cover the upper arms in ladylike fashion.
"This is a style" :that you likely don't already have in your wardrobe closet. Overlapping trouser panels drape in front for a playful kick to the hem. They flutter with every step, swaying sensationally around legs. The narrow hip band is beautifully subtle to keep the focus on the exaggerated trouser legs.
A banded collar and the halter neckline gives "this style" a nod to the classic sophisticated tops from the 60s. Extend the length of the pattern to sew a sexy mini or midi dress for hot summer night parties.
"These narrow fit trousers" shape beautifully along the yoke sewn in a comfortable stretch fabric. An extra feminine detail: The attached hem bands that tie in bows at the sides.
A lightweight topper for cool evenings or as a modern blazer look. "The blouson" is sewn in a fine satin and is drawn toward the waist with an elastic casing and a tied bow to keep it closed.
"This halter style swimsuit" is an elegant style for the pool or the beach. The plunging neckline is decorated with a mini bow. Panel seams help this style follow the figure. The bodice of the swimsuit is doubled with a white fabric for an interesting accent with the tie. This look can also work for a sunset meet-up worn as a bodysuit paired with a summer skirt.
So cool: "A narrow-fit skirt" with trench coat details! Horn buttons and a fold-over collar at the waistband are two fun features. Style it best with tops and t-shirts that fit close to the body.
"This tunic" shows how elegant a striped shirting fabric can be. The attached fabric bands shift between horizontal and vertical – and the addition of piping sets it in focus.
The ladylike look of a skirt and the practical sense of shorts. "These shorts" : are sewn with a royal blue crêpe and feature pleats that open toward the waist and the hem for sensational volume.
"This deep blue linen shirt" with its plastron and mother of pearl buttons is all about relaxed comfort. The sleeves are finished with a meticulous cuff hem that leaves enough width so that they can also be casually rolled.
"This charming dress" is so cheerful in a vibrant pink poplin. A wide ruffle is sewn into the side panel seam – it would also be a great accent in a contrast color.
An elaborately finished scallop hem decorates "this cropped top"- with the rounded neckline.
"This" is sure to be a new wardrobe favorite for the youngsters. A charming scallop trims the hems. They aren't only cute, though, as they are also quite comfy with the elastic casing in the back waistband.
"A sweet swimsuit"sewn in the dotted fabric and with mini ruffles along the straps and neckline.
