I’m asked for more patterns drafted for non-stretch woven fabrics all the time! And although my heart will always sing for those quick knits 😉 I do love a nice woven top or dress too!
So without further ado, let me introduce the Timeless Tunic and the youth version the Tiny Timeless (because Baby Girl needs to match Mama sometimes)! We also have them bundled together for a discount in the Timeless Bundle! All will be on sale through Sunday 9/18/2016 US Central Time Zone.
I love a softer drape for my own tops. I feel like the drape gives a more flattering silhouette. Personal favorites are rayon challis, crepe, peachskin, poly chiffon and voile. But, I drafted it so that you can get away with using a stiffer woven like a chambray or flannel without loosing too much of the glamour! Now you will have a great, timeless pattern that allows you to use up that gorgeous woven fabric you’ve been hoarding for that “perfect pattern”! (ah ah ahhhhhhhhhh…)
Both include the same options:
Tank– Perfect for warmer weather or for a nice layering piece. I loved to wear a nice silky tank under a cardigan!
Short Sleeve– A bit more coverage, but still great for warmer weather and layering!
3/4 Sleeve– A great transition length that you can wear year round.
Long Sleeve- Take this length into the colder months no problem! A lot of our testers loved the longer sleeve paired with a cozy flannel!
Top/Shirt Length- Cute, comfy, and easy to wear!
Curved Tunic Length- My personal favorite 🙂 It’s flattering and has some coverage but still looks trendy and put together. Younger girls love that curved tunic for pairing with skinnies or leggings!
Dress Length- Meant to hit about 2″ above knee (a super flattering length on all shapes) you can make it casual everyday or sew it up in a nicer fabric and pair with heels to dress it up!
So, just how versatile is this pattern? It can really be styled up or down so many ways you could wear this anywhere!
This is such a classic look you can make it a casual, everyday/play look:
Maybe a casual date, girls meet up, or shopping day:
Use something a bit nicer and you have a great office or work wear attire staple. Send your littles in it for school ceremonies or picture day:
It’s the perfect style for a shower or party! Perfect for those adorable border prints as well!
You can even do a great silky fabric and make a more formal version:
Warning though, doing this dress in a fabulous silky leopard print can really make you feel glamourous!! This little one had some great modeling poses in her fancy dress!! Don’t we all love to feel beautiful! <3 <3 <3
I hope you enjoy this new pattern as much as we all do!
The Timeless Tunic and Tiny Timeless will be a great weapon to pull out when you or your little one find that perfect woven fabric!
