New Digital Pattern | Little Women
13th November 2020
Although our children and grandchildren tend to spend a lot of their time in T-shirts and jeans, on those wonderful occasions when they put on a handmade smocked item, they are instantly transformed into children from days gone by, with puffed sleeves, full skirts and gorgeous fabrics making them look for all the world like little princesses.
The perfect way to complete that look is to add a stunning, handmade petticoat to the ensemble
This is why Little Women, from AS&E issue #50 has remained so popular and why we’re now offering it as a digital pattern.
Included in the pattern are three essential petticoats designed specifically to go beneath a wide range of smocked dresses. There is pull-on, drop waist style petticoat with a soft, cotton-lycra bodice. There is an easy to construct petticoat with a skirt attached to a purchased singlet or vest. And there is a waisted petticoat, beautifully trimmed with broderie Anglaise.
The petticoats can be embellished with ribbons or lace and can be made as full as required in order to really enhance your smocked creation.
Little Women is the perfect pattern for ensuring that your princess looks her best in whatever smocked outfit you’ve so lovingly made.
