Bursting with new projects!


Treadle Make Tuesday

Every Tuesday we share projects from Treadle Yard Goods employees (a.k.a. The Treadlettes) and our customers and fans!

Treadle student Chineze has been taking sewing classes with us for a couple years, making lots of different projects, but here is her first complete garment made from a pattern. 

She used a soft cotton voile and Vogue pattern 1698 to make this cute spring dress.

We're so proud of all the hard work and dedication Chineze has put into sewing class these last couple years. Way to go, girl!

Want more project inspiration? Check out the #mytreadlemake tag on Instagram. Anyone can use this tag to share something they're made with our fabric, buttons, or notions, in our classes, or just with our advice and support!

New Pattern of the Month!

May's pattern is the Fringe dress and Blouse from Chalk and Notch! 

This cute popover dress has a curved shirt-tail hem shape, two neckline and sleeve options, and optional waist ties to cinch up the fit.

Elizabeth's version at right is view A made from a paisley rayon challis. I loved the bust cup sizing options! Just because a pattern has a loose, comfy fit, that doesn't mean I'll settle for a shapeless bag. (See more pics here at the blog)

Get it for 15% through the month!
