I've made at least 15 of these and each time I make one, I get a whole new look with all these options!
Jayne’s is an absolute must have pattern. It is every little girl’s and mama’s dream pattern. It is packed full of options! Jayne comes in a trendy peplum or dress length. The dress length has a simple skirt, a skirt with a band, and a skirt with a ruffle option. Jayne has SEVEN sleeve options! You can choose sleeveless, flutter sleeve, cap sleeve, short puff sleeve, ¾ sleeve, long sleeve with cuff and bell sleeve. You will be able to use Jayne all year round; for all holidays, celebrations, special occasions, or just for an every day dress. Jayne can be as simple or elaborate as you want! Each Jayne you make will look different from the last.
The back of Jayne has a beautiful V back and has NO closures (no zippers, no buttons, and no elastic)! You will just love the ease of this pattern.
Jayne is very beginner friendly with detailed step by step instructions complete with helpful pictures and videos! In this pattern, you will learn to understitch and do French seams if you choose those options. Your imagination and creativity can really shine with Jayne. There is room to add all kinds of trims, piping, lace, buttons, and anything else you can come up with. Whether you are a beginner sewist or and expert, you will impress yourself with what you can accomplish with Jayne!

This dress was purchased a few months ago in anticipation for spring dresses. Oh my goodness was it just perfect! Sewed up amazingly quick! 2 dresses for girls aged 5 and 8 (dresses measured at 5 and 6 chests with their age lengths) in a day! Cant wait to sew more! We love our ckc patterns and this was as amazing as all the others! Look forward to a few of these as tops with some wren pantaloons for spring also.
Jayne is my go to quick sew!! I love that it has so many options! I’ve even mashed up the Jayne bodice with my other favorite, Poppy! I just used Jayne to make my daughter a last minute dress for the Nutcracker, it turned out perfect!
So far I have made two Jayne's, one dress and one top. Both turned out so cute and the directions were easy to follow. I can't wait to try more of the options as this will be perfect for Halloween costumes or Holiday party dresses.
