My dear friends i am so excited to let you in on a little secret… after many many requests over the last few years – we have begun quietly working away on a line of children’s patterns based on our women’s designs!
I’m so excited – this has been really fun and something that i’ve wanted to do for many many years and just haven’t had the time to focus on (see here and here – when did these kids grow up?! yikes). Lets all give Sarah three cheers for helping me find more time for design development!
Currently in development are Mini Tania culottes, Mini Briar sweater + tee and Mini Virginia leggings. Basically I’m looking at this as a mini collection of sorts – a few key patterns that could make up an entire little girls wardrobe. They will be practical and they will be stylish, with additional details that are appropriate to kids wear like knee patches and applique and easy on off waistbands (why make kids struggle with zips?!). Basically a bunch of cute stuff i can’t stop myself from including hehe.
I’m planning on covering ages 2-12 and based on how well these patterns do i’m hoping to expand to more designs, a range for baby and of course boys because i love my boy and boys need rad clothing too!
As with any new pattern we’ll be going into testing for these designs soon – so if you think you’d be interested in helping test out some little girls patterns here is a link to the sign up form (please note that this is a different list than for testing our women’s patterns, if you’d like to sign up for our women’s list here is the link). If you don’t have a little girl please feel free to sign up anyway – we would love to get in touch when we start on boys.
So what do you think?! I hope you’re as excited as i am – this is something that’s really close to my heart and i can’t wait to get some stylish kids stuff out to you all!
