It’s a two year celebration over at Simple Life Pattern Company!  I was lucky enough to be in on several of the recent tests for releases during the anniversary celebration and to get to share with you one of my most recent creations to help celebrate the fun.  Be sure to make it to the end of this post for details on sales and a bundle giveaway.  After you enter, be sure to hop to the rest of the blogs to see some amazing SLPco creations. *This post does contain affiliate links.


I didn’t really start sewing up Simple Life Patterns until about a year ago.  I confess.. I was more of a stalker than a buyer.  I just don’t buy a ton of patterns in general.  I do more fabric hoarding really.  I’m not really sure what started my string of makes, but as I look back on the year I do have several that I have ended up making, testing, and/or blogging.  Along the way I’ve made some great friends too!  I’ve enjoyed the patterns that I’ve sewn and almost every Simple Life creation I have made has been in the “most loved” category with my little girls.  I know there were tears shed when several of the dresses were passed on to other homes.  I’m going to share a collection of a few makes to reminisce at then end of the post.  But for now, let’s check out my latest make!

I don’t know if you saw my Dolly and Me Ayda dress creations or not, but my girls really loved those dresses.  So what is better than a great dress pattern? It’s a great dress pattern created for knits! My girls love comfy cozy knits and they will never turn down a new dress.  The Ayda Top and Dress pattern is so popular, I know people are going to eat up the fact that they can now make it in knit fabrics.


The crossover back on Ayda helps to make it such a quick sew.  Throw in a circle skirt that doesn’t need to be gathered and it is a match made in heaven.  I could crank several of these out at any given moment if needed.


Let’s talk twirl factor!! Do you need this in a dress? My girls are growing more and more fond of twirling now that they have started ballet.  The circle skirt is a perfect match for the twirler inside every little lady.  The fit is great and I love that there are options for both with and without sleeves.

There are so many possible combinations on the site for Ayda when you look at baby sizes, girl sizes, romper add-ons, bundles, and get the look kits.  Here is a quick link to scope out all the options.

Thanks to Katie for bringing little bits of happy along with a lot of style to these little ladies of mine! Here are a few of my SLPco makes I could find from the past year.

The Bella in the right hand corner… That is what it’s all about.  Seriously… I’m kinda tearing up on that one.

  1. I love this version of the Ayda. The woven Ayda is one of my “go to” patterns. Visiting from Pittsburgh!
    P.s. The IG rafflecopter link isn’t working!


  2. I just found SLPC recently and can’t wait to start sewing all the patterns! This dress is great! I have three girls, and we live in Florida so I’m ready to start sewing tons of dresses for Spring!


  3. I loved seeing your collection at the end! I don’t think I could pick a favorite. Every time I look at Simple Life patterns, I think “oh this is my favorite” – “oh no, wait, this is my favorite”! My daughter loves them all! Gorgeous work!
