Blaverry New Releases: Hayden

Today is a huge day for Blaverry PDF Patterns...So many new patterns will be added to the pattern shop. I was able to help out on testing of a few of them and today I'm showing off my Hayden skirt and Star top. Although Star is not a brand new pattern work has been done to it, the size range in a lot larger now!

Star is a slim fit boatneck tee with half sleeves. A facing is used at the neckline to create that slight curve. I top stitched using a twin needle around the neckline and the bottom hem and sleeves. Just so you know this is a size 4 meant for Amelia, but it didn't go over her head (she does have a bit of a bigger head) BUT it did go very nicely without effort over JubeJube's head, who is now moving in to size 5.

This top is quite long no worries that you'll have exposed tummies or backs even if the bottoms are a lower rise. 

The Hayden skirt is a beautiful gathered skirt with inseam pockets and snaps down the left side of the skirt. The skirt waistband as tested doesn't have an elastic at the back but darn sure that one can be put in if desired.

Here are just some details Christie includes in her all her PDF patterns:

  • Layered printing, print only the sizes you want or need with this feature
  • 3/8" seam allowances are included
  • Imperial and metric charts for body measurements and yardage requirements
  • Digital illustrations and clear step-by step written instructions are included in the tutorial
  • Sizes range (for most patterns) 9 months to 16 years

Ok, I just have to point this out, have you ever seen a five-year-old pose like this! I swear I didn't coach her.

Ok, one last thing, go check out Blaverry, like them on facebook to keep up with new releases, and be sure to take advantage of the new release sale going on NOW!

Until next time, xx.


  1. Thanks Amy! I know you've been a long time fan of the Star top and I finally made one and love it!

  2. That fabric is gorgeous on the skirt! Beautiful outfit.

  3. Wow, what a great set!! Love your design of it. Definitely will be checking the patterns out. What kind of knit fabric did you use for the shirt?

    1. Thanks Christine! The knit for the top is a jersey cotton linen blend, no lycra in it. I've had it in my stash for a couple of years now. The blues in the skirt just matched perfectly to the top so they were calling out to me!
