A fresh summer white dress gets a colorful lift with trim details. A casing at the waist accents the relaxed look of the linen dress. The tying band has tassels for extra flair and the modern flounce sleeve ends are decorated with extravagant rows of trim. A vibrant rickrack trim lends the dress a sweet boho vibe. But make sure to take special care when sewing the trim so that it stays parallel – to ensure that it remains accurate, you could mark the lines with chalk before.


This jumpsuit is just as sexy as a dress! The smoldering one-piece has a culottes silhouette. The neck outline extending to the armscye is a flounce that cascades from the shoulder. The back is tied at the neck and includes a gap for a peek of sun-kissed skin. The panel with the elastic casing in back lets you show a bit of skin, though it also allows you to easily wear a bra with the outfit.


These sunshine yellow 7/8-trousers also get a playful touch with trim. This time, a solid white contrasts with the rich yellow. They fit low on the waist and zip closed on the side.


This top is long enough in back to cover the backside and includes a deep and wide V-neck in front with a sophisticated pleat detail on the shoulders. The generous sleeves are both playful and serve to cover the upper arms beautifully.


A couple of special touches add extra nuances to this relaxed T-shirt dress. The asymmetric skirt hem and the sophisticated pleat details at the shoulders. The elastic in the waist shapes the feminine silhouette.


Sporty and so totally feminine…this tunic dress in the flattering trendy color of sunshine yellow is cut to fit at the bodice and finish with a flare toward the hem. A cool necklace effect. Two piping trim pieces are sewn into a front plastron accent to stretch the figure and draw the eye toward the ornamental tassels at the neckline that you – if you wish to or your time allows – can make yourself or you can buy. For a completely different look, you can cut the plastron panel out of a coordinating color or a printed fabric.


The laid-back, knee-skimming print dress is regulated at the waistline with a casing and the generous sleeves are finished with a softly gathered panel. If you are on the lookout for a polished cocktail style, sew it in a jewel tone silk or a classic black.


These pants get their pep not from the trim, but from the bright stripes and the spirit of folklore fashion vibe.

    Except for the slouchy dress the other dresses had similar sleeves. I don’t care for the new cropped pants. I have made one jumpsuit and it’s such a rigamarole getting in and out of it I wouldn’t make another. I’m not one who cares for deep v’s in my tops and dresses. I was hoping for a simple woven linen shirt pattern with poet sleeves or pirate sleeves. However, I applaud you for putting out 6 plus size patterns.

    Hmm. With the slouchy poses it is hard to tell if the pleated t-shirt and dress are nice or just a mess. The back on the jumpsuit is cute (though I do not like jumpsuits!). Maybe it can be adapted to a dress.
