Featured Friday!!! Everywhere I turn lately I hear “Ayano”, “Ayano”. So I thought that would be a good pattern for our Featured Friday today!! This is one of my favorites for lots of reasons.
“Ayano” is a Japanese girl’s name that means “from love” and “made of fabric”. I thought that was a perfect name for this pattern. This pattern was created as a way to help with the devastation in 2011 with the tsunami in Japan. 100% of the sales were donated to Samaritan’s Purse and we were able to help in a significant way and share love in Japan. I always say…I have the BEST customers!
The other reason I love this dress is because of the layers of flirty flounces. NO GATHERING on this dress!! The flounces are uniquely cut as bias cut circular flounces which give them an awesome drape and also speeds up sewing it! It was Ellie’s Easter dress a couple of years ago and also a Christmas dress this last year. It was originally made as a special Valentine’s dress. So, it works for lots of occasions!
Here are some pictures over the years of Ayano in different fabrics.
This comes in sizes 1-5
Price: $ 9.95
HAPPY FRIDAY and Happy Sewing!
P.S. I have had some ask about this in larger sizes. I actually do have “Pixie Girl” for sizes 4-12 which has the same flounced skirt but a different bodice. You can find that pattern here: http://www.ellieinspired.com/
