I was able to test out three new woven patterns for Petite Stitchery these last few weeks. The Baby SaffronSaffron, the Girls Saffron , and the Girls Sage all released this week and are fantastic for Fall!
The Girls Sage is a great layering piece for Fall as you can wear it over a shirt or you can wear it alone and throw on a cardigan when it cools off. This pattern comes in a top or dress length with a feminine V shape on the bodice. You can choose from a color blocked bodice, slip on without closures, solid bodice or a button placket. It also includes optional pockets. I have grown to love buttons but I am also a sucker for a quick no closure sew which this was! For ours I chose the dress length, slip on solid bodice with pockets. This bodice is great for embellishing with trim, buttons, lace, you name it. I layered ours over the Sapphire which is a great layering piece. I used a dark olive cotton lycra from Purple Seamstress for the shirt and both fabrics for the dress are from Joann. Grading between sizes was super easy as well, I graded this as a size 10 for length with a size 5 for width to get that perfect fit.
Next up are both the Baby Saffron and the Girls Saffron patterns. Both patterns include options for a scoop back slip on bodice, button back bodice, and 2 different color blocked bodice options. There are 3 sleeve lengths, 3 skirt lengths and a pocket option with both patterns. The baby pattern also includes a bubble romper option with a snap panel. This pattern is also great for adding fun embellishments like trim and lace. I only needed to grade the baby pattern for a 12 month width and 18 month length and again it was very simple to do to get that perfect fit.
For the baby pattern I sewed up a bubble romper and a color blocked slip on bodice dress. For the girls size I also sewed up a color blocked slip on bodice dress. The romper fabric and lace are both last season from Hobby Lobby as well as the animal fabric on both dresses.
These patterns are on sale for a short time and there is even a womens sizing available on the Saffron as well as one more woven dress release too! No worries if you miss the sale pricing, they have bundle discounts available on the website as well! I’d love to see what you create:)
