Girl Charlee Fabrics :: NEW Sewing Patterns from Selvage Designs

There's nothing better than finding a sewing pattern that will remain usable for many years, and that's exactly what you get when you buy Selvage Designs Sewing Patterns. Designer, teacher, blogger, and mom Lauren Dahl created Selvage Designs to produce simple, timeless sewing patterns that everyone is sure to love as well as block patterns that you can use to come up with your very own clothing designs in a snap.  We are very excited to have Lauren on board with Girl Charlee Fabrics and hope you enjoy her patterns!

Selvage Designs
At Selvage Designs, our goal is to bring you modern and functional sewing patterns that you’ll keep in your stash for years to come. Most of our designs feature simple lines with a surprising detail – a unique way of arranging the pieces, an unexpected cutout or a fun construction detail. Many of our patterns are designed for knits for maximum comfort and wearability.

Selvage Designs Children's Top Pattern Blocks Sewing Pattern :: 

Want to design your own children’s knitwear, but don’t want to waste time drafting blocks or tracing existing garments? These knitwear top pattern blocks will have you well on your way! These unisex pattern blocks come in children’s sizes 2-7 and include a bodice front, back and long sleeve. The bodice pieces are marked at the waist, hip, crotch and knee for maximum design versatility. Design a little boy’s t-shirt or a girl’s dress…a unisex tank top or a gathered tunic…all from one simple block! The pattern blocks do NOT include seam allowance or sewing instructions and assume that you, the sewist or designer, have basic design/sewing skills to modify the blocks as desired and assemble the final garment. The blocks are based on current (2013) ASTM measurements and have zero ease for a close, modern fit. You can add or subtract ease as desired to achieve your design vision.

SOLEIL is a sun-loving, sleeveless, knit dress with contrast ribbing (or stretch knit) around the neck, armholes, back opening and pockets.

Pattern size range is 12 months through 12 years. Recommended fabrics are any knits with 4-way stretch such as cotton jersey, cotton lycra or rayon spandex.
