Treadlette Tuesday: A Spring Jacket

Today's Treadlette project comes from Sue. She used bright red, one of her favorite colors, to make this charcoal grey knit pop.

Red accents are created by the jersey binding, buttons, and pocket lining.

The pattern is Vogue 9244 by Marcy Tilton, a cute knit jacket with a hood and a subtle high-low hem.

Find your perfect spring jacket today! Stop by Treadle and get inspired.

Treadlette Tuesday: Embroidered Chambray Skirt

Hi Treadle fans, Elizabeth here, sharing my pick of the week!

When I saw this embroidered denim at the store, I was instantly in love! I knew I wanted a quick, easy garment. A skirt would be perfect!

I used McCall's 7439 (view D). To avoid cutting too much embroidery, I placed the center back seam on a fold instead, then moved the zipper to the left side seam. 2 1/4" yards allowed me to place the pieces cross-grain along the border with no margin!

I didn't make the included belt; instead I made a sash from coordinating shot cotton from my home stash.

This skirt is currently on display at the store if you need a closer look!

We have more than the usual amount of unicorn prints right now, and why not? Unicorns are fun, magical, and lovely! Take a look!

This print has metallic golden trees for a majestic sparkle!

This large-scale print with clouds and rainbows is filled with color.

This printed cotton jersey knit is on the subtle side, with small pink unicorns and rabbits scattered among the foliage.

Do you love unicorns as much as we do?

New Linens

We are starting to see springy new linens in the store! There are fresh new stripes:

And a few fun patterns!

This linen piece has a subtle, organic print.

Dark indigo chambray takes advantage of linen's great visual texture.

This kelly green damask has a beautiful, subtle pattern woven in.

And of course, there are always plenty of solid colors, too, like this new soft lavender!
