The Matilda Pattern by Violette Field Threads

I recently made my first “Matilda” from Violette Field Threads, and I have to say I adore this pattern so much!!  It’s such a quick and easy sew with fabulous results, which I LOVE.  And as you can tell by the following photos, my daughter loved it too.   It has the perfect amount of twirl, and the flutter sleeves were just the right touch for my girly-girl.  I love the 3/4 length sleeve option as well, and we will definitely be trying that out in the fall.  Plus, the elastic neckline and waist make it a breeze since I didn’t have to fuss with adding buttons or snap closures.

This dress is perfect for all sorts of cotton woven fabrics.  So, the sky’s the limit on the cuteness factor!  I’m sure I could add some fun embellishments to the hemline or a cute flower to the waistband to spice it up a bit as well.

I have soooo many Violette Field Threads patterns, and they are always my favorites to go back to over and over again.  Their patterns are easy to follow for everyone from beginners to more experienced sewists.  Plus, I always find the sizing and measurements to be on-point for both my girls, and that makes my life So. Much. Easier.  You can find this and many other awesome and adorable Violette Field Thread patterns here.

I think I may add a few of these lovelies to the shop soon in some fun summer fabrics, so keep an eye out for that in the coming weeks!
