Violette Field Threads Summer Collection: Quinn Top and Skirt

Quinn-9

Summer is coming and your little one will be SO cute in a Quinn top and skirt from Violette Field Threads pattern, releasing this Thursday! Quinn-8

The Quinn top is a fully lined knit top with super cute cap sleeves with drawstring ties. Optional bodice embellishment of pleats (as shown) or a flat band add a cute detail to this great fitting tank. My daughter loved how comfy and soft it was, and I love not having to iron!Quinn-7

The Quinn skirt is best made from heavy weight fabrics like home decor, canvas, duck cloth, etc. I used a striped canvas from Fabric Mart and the shape and structure is on point! Quinn-6

I am currently obsessed with decorative zips, and this lace zip is beyond precious! I think I need more in every color! Quinn-5

The skirt has a double or triple layer of decorative elastic for the waistband. I used a plain white as my selections on island were limited and I didn’t find much online that would go with my color scheme. She loved her new outfit- it was comfortable, cute and has a lot of style! Quinn

The best part about the Quinn pattern- it comes in Ladies’ sizes too!!!  As much as I loathe having my picture taken, this outfit was something I was just dying to show off! Ladies Quinn-5

The ladies version is made of the same type of materials. I used this vibrant butterfly home decor weight linen that was in the remnant section (score at $3.99/yard!). I’ve been eyeing this fabric, but didn’t think it would work well for little girls as the butterflies are HUGE! Yet, they were perfect for this skirt!Ladies Quinn-6

The knit top has great cap sleeves that cover straps for a modest, classy look (but apparently not my horrid tan lines hahaha!). I went with the flat band detail for my tank top. I used this great solid white knit, also from the remnant pile (at $2.99 yard for the perfect weight and stretch- I was in bargain heaven!). I love that this top is lined, I didn’t have to worry about anything showing through and the structure of the top held my waist in nicely.

The decorative elastic waistband and exposed zipper make for a comfortable fit that was easy to wear, wasn’t restrictive or bothersome. I love a cute outfit that I can feel as comfortable in as my yoga pants and this set was a win for sure!
