Miss Polly PATTERN RELEASE (and discount)

March 14, 2016

I am very excited to release the Miss Polly pattern today! I have had sixteen fabulous testers working hard over the past two weeks making up one, two and three dresses each! I have been very excited seeing all the photos coming in from these lovely ladies and am now excited to be able to have this pattern listed in my shop! 

Miss Polly is a sweet vintage inspired dress that offers three main views - sleeveless, capped sleeve and then either three quarter or long sleeves. A large apron pocket can be piped and fabrics can be mixed and matched to achieve different looks. Decorative shoulder flaps can be added to your dress too. The back closes with an invisible zipper and the bodice is lined. 

Here are some more specifics of the Miss Polly pattern:
  • Sizes 12 mo, 18mo, 2 - 10 years;
  • Detailed photographic/written instructions including how to make your own piping;
  • You will receive three separate files after purchase: 1/ instructions; 2/ home print pattern; 3/ A0 shop print file (2 pages);
  • Pattern is printable in colour or black and white;
  • Size chart in metric and imperial;
  • Fabric requirements for standard two widths of fabric (metric and imperial);
  • Fabric layout diagrams;
  • A thoroughly tested pattern. 
Below you will see some excerpts from the pattern file so that you know what to expect. 

FABRIC REQUIREMENTS
The following woven fabrics are recommended for the main dress: quilting cotton, chambray, pinwale corduroy, velveteen, drill, duck, lightweight denim. For the front skirt (which appears through the apron pocket), use quilting weight cotton for best results.  For the front and back bodice lining use quilting weight cotton, lawn or chambray.  For simplicity, the lining requirements in the table assume you are using the same fabric for the front skirt (which is made visible by the scooped pockets), front and back yoke lining, pocket lining, shoulder flap and capped sleeve lining.
115 cm (45”) width fabric

  10. This looks fabulous! I hope to get my credit card up and running again (we've had some problems with it...) and then I will definitely buy this pattern, and probably some others too, since I didn't really know them yet and discovered they're really very much the style I love!!
