This month, I was part of 2 pattern tests, one of which was the Ashton Top and Dress by Violette Field Threads.
My favorite part about this make was the sleeves! Big, full, glorious sleeves gathered right into the bodice for an interesting construction and finished look! The pattern included both a flutter sleeve and a ¾ length sleeve, and the option of making a top or a dress with 2 skirt lengths. The bodice is finished with binding and closes with buttons at the back.
If you’re into mommy and me looks, the Ashton is also available in girls and tween sizes over at http://www.violettefieldthreads.com
I made mine up in a size 12 using some red and gold ankara fabric in honor of Black History Month!
