Gloria:: New Release from 5 out of 4 Patterns
I'm definitely still in the adjustment period on this whole three kids thing. Know how I know? Because this pattern has a boatload of options, and I only made one during testing. Dane is staying awake more and more and the other two have a bad case of cabin fever. I'm dreaming of melting snow and sending those two outside for hours on end. But for now, only one Gloria was made.
How about that split sleeve, huh? It's definitely my favorite option! I love it in the short sleeve, but I went for 3/4 here. The pattern does also include regular sleeves and cut lines for a tank if split sleeves aren't your thing ;)
I made the high/low, but there's also a skater skirt option. Both come in peplum, short dress and long dress lengths. See what I mean? So many options!
My advice on this split sleeve though, is to make sure you have not just matching thread for the top, but for the bobbin as well. I definitely made that mistake, and the white thread was super noticeable with how open the sleeve is.
This textured knit is super fun-- I found it at Jo-Ann's! They also had white and navy (which I bought too!). I honestly woke up one Saturday and was like, "I have to go to Jo-Ann's and get that fabric. I will not rest until that fabric is in my hands." Woman on a mission.
