It has been a busy few weeks at FooFoo Threads!  This Monday, we released three new patterns to the shop: Adeline, Lily Mae, and Angelina.

If you recall, we participated in the Bundle UP sale over at Pattern Revolution in the month of January.  It was then that the new Adeline Cardigan and Dress was introduced.  However, it wasn’t available through our shop until this week.

Adeline is a primarily knit pattern with lots of options.  Designed for the beginner/intermediate sewist and the size range starts at 0-3 months ending at size 10.  We love versatile in our house, so I know you will love the different sleeve lengths it offers.  Also, who doesn’t love a Peter Pan collar?  It is totally my favorite touch of the pattern.  Not only will this pattern last every season as a cardigan, but check out the dress length option with a peplum style skirt.

You can find this pattern listed in the shop for $8.75.

The next big release was the gorgeous Lily Mae!  From the very beginning this pattern got a lot of attention as soon as it was introduced in the FooFoo Threads Enthusiast Facebook group.  In pure FooFoo style, this pattern offers BIG results and lots of ruffles.  The distinct ruffle inset on the skirt makes this dress a show stopper.  Lily Mae3As always, the instructions are written for various sewing abilities.  The suggested skill level for this pattern is advanced beginner through intermediate.  Lots of people are always asking about the elastic options on the back of many of  the bodices.  Jocelyn always includes instructions for shirring as well as elastic casings.

This pattern includes sizes 3-6 months through size 10.  It is listed at $8.75 as well.

Last but not least was the Angelina Tutu Skirt.  Many of you will recognize this pattern since it has been in the shop for a while.  However, it has been given a makeover and now includes five additional sizes.  Ranging in sizes 6-12 months through 12 girls, this will be a pattern that can grow with your little one.

Now, my very favorite part about his skirt is the options!  You will see most people use the tulle ruffle option the most.  I on the other hand love all things lace!  Check out these pictures from ladies that used lace instead of tulle.

It doesn’t get more girly than this darling little skirt.  You can pick it up in the shop now for $8.25.

Many fun things already in the works for next month!  Be sure to stop back by as we will be adding new posts to the blog weekly.

Keeping it FooFoo,
