Summer might be coming to an end, but we’ve still got some “Summer of Wovens” patterns up our sleeves!
Before we get to the fun: If you already own a copy of the original Sweet Bow, you will NOT need to re-purchase to get the updates. If you bought here (PatternsforPirates.com) or on the Craftsy store, you will simply need to sign into your account and re-download the file. If your purchase was via Etsy, email firstname.lastname@example.org (WITH PROOF OF PURCHASE) and you will get an updated file. It’s as easy as that, we promise!
The Sweet Bow is a stylish pattern with a sweetheart neckline, a bodice that hits at the natural waistline, and features a very full and twirly skirt.
This was one of the earlier Patterns for Pirates patterns and we wanted to make sure to update it to the current P4P standards. The pdfs now include our layers feature and can be found in letter and A4 (no A0- it is only 2-3 pages to print!). We also tweaked the fit for the smallest sizes and added maxi length option for some extra glamour.
The Sweet Bow now features three hemlines (top, dress and maxi), two strap options (cross and easy on-off), and optional bow embellishments (small and mega bow).
