In just a few days, I’ll be releasing a set of four new patterns in a series called “Jersey Love”. Each of these patterns is designed to work perfectly with the designer stretch jerseys that are on the market now. (Each one also includes options for sewing with other knit fabrics, too.) I worked specifically with the beautiful new Riley Blake Designs stretch jerseys on these patterns, and I highly recommend them! There’s a huge selection, and they sew up beautifully! You can check them out right here: Riley Blake Knits.
First up is the Downtown V-Neck:In sizes 12 months to 14, the Downtown V-Neck is the perfect casual, contemporary wardrobe staple for your little man! It’s at home whether his day takes him to a movie, dinner, church or the playground, or even all four.The Downtown V-Neck gives you the choice of short or long sleeves. No matter what the weather holds, you’ll be able to use this pattern all year long. You can also sew this top with stretch jersey or with cotton interlock.The Downtown V-Neck takes advantage of those curly jersey knit edges with raw edge finishes on the pocket and the hems. Those raw edges add some modern style and fun, as well.The Downtown V-Neck and three other Jersey Love patterns are set to be released on Friday. I’ll be sharing the next pattern in the set late this afternoon!
