Classic Heirloom Collection


The Yoke Dress:  Size 3 mo - 4, or 5-14.  $15.00.  This classic yoke dress has variations for short or long sleeves, angel sleeves collar overlays or as a jumper.   The instruction booklet has instructions for 10 sleeve variations, 8 collar variations and hemline variations.  Smocking graph for Christy is included.


The Ultimate Bishop:  Size 3 mo - 4yr, or 5-12.  $15.00.  This bishop dress fits beautifully.   There is more fullness in the sleeve and a slight curve to the neckline eliminating a dip in the front and back hem.   The additional fullness decreases the tendency for a bishop neckline to "turtleneck"  There are sleeve variations for short, long or angel sleeves, insert collar, collar overlay, or front or back openings.   The instruction booklet has instructions and illustrations for all variations.     Smocking graph 'Marie' included.    

This is my best bishop pattern.  The instructions are fabulous with size charts for sleeve bands, neckbands and more.

  Collars and More:  Size 3mo - 4 or 5-14.  $15.00.   This is a supplement to the Ultimate Yoke Dress Pattern.   This includes 12 collar shapes and variations for the high or raised yoke dress and the dropped yoke.   Included are instructions for a smocked to the shoulder variation for the Ultimate Yoke Dress as well as detailed instructions for basic embroidery, silk ribbon embroidery and shadow work and appliqué.  Many shadow work designs are included in this pattern.
