Girl Charlee Fabrics :: NEW Named Clothing Playground Sewing Pattern Collection

The Named Clothing 2017 Spring/Summer Collection PLAYGROUND is now available at Girl Charlee Fabrics! Inspired by the practicality of childrenswear, each pattern in this playful collection is named after a character from a children's book. Playground consists of everything you need to do a full revamp of your wardrobe, with 3 dresses, 3 tops, a pair of pants, dungarees, a playsuit, and a jacket. Below is more about Named, along with a closer look of a few of our favorite new patterns paired with coordinating fabrics from Enjoy!

Named Clothing
Named is an independent clothing pattern label founded by Finnish sisters Saara and Laura Huhta. Named garments are a combination of Scandinavian clean-lined simplicity and interesting details. Named launches two main collections a year, and the patterns have five levels of difficulty, which means that anyone from a beginner to a more experienced sewer can find patterns suited to their skill level.

The pattern includes two variations: a feminine cocktail dress and a casual top. Both variations have bell-shaped raglan sleeves and a pretty, curved cut at the chest. The dress is unlined, it has a zipper closure in the back and six waist pleats on the front. The dress is knee-length and semi-fitted. The top has a bell-shaped hem which is slightly longer in the back. You can insert piping to either the dress or the top to emphasize the curved cut at the chest.
