Greetings from Petite Plus Patterns!

New Outfits for Summer

a fun combo for warm daysA Fun Combo for Warm Days

This summer we'll be seeing cute little tops that are loose and sport a cap sleeve.

The top shown here is made from our pattern #401 Simple Yoked Nightgown.

We've made this pattern up into beach dresses, so why not a summer top as well!

The pattern includes short or long options and two neckline styles. I made this little darling in a cool, breathable rayon.

For added style, the yoke and sleeves are piped with trim left over from the capri pants.

Capri pants are my favourite alternative to shorts and skirts for summer. Here they are made with a pretty Hawaiian cotton print and our pattern #604 Capri Pant.

Fabric for top and capri came from our friends at Islands Fabrics in Los Angeles CA.

For a Cooler Evening

This top is a simple t-shirt made from our pattern #102 Sweater Twin Set - designed especially for knits.

I make all my t-shirts and stretchy tops from this versatile two-piece set. Options include short or long sleeves on both pullover and cardigan. The pullover has a basic jewel neck. For myself, I prefer a v-neck, so once the shoulders were sewn, I put on the top in front of a mirror, marked a V point placement (making sure to allow for seam allowance) then re-cut the neck .

The t-shirt fabric is a fine gauge rayon knit with a dash of spandex. The collar shown is a tube made from the t-shirt remnant. It pops over the head like a necklace and up-scales an otherwise plain t-shirt to a dressier top.

The casual pants shown here are made from our pattern #605 Jeans.

For this pant, I kept things real simple and didn't do any of the jeans style top stitching. Fast and easy! The pant fabric is a stretch woven in cotton/polyester with 3% spandex.

Fabrics for both t-shirt and pant come from Telio, Montreal - suppliers to fabric stores throughout Canada and USA.

We wish you a fun and enjoyable summer.

All best from everyone at Petite Plus Patterns
