Love Notions Allegro Release

In Florida it’s become apparent that summer is here. The sun is shining, the days are long, the beaches are full, the temperatures are climbing, the rain is random, and thus, summer sewing has commenced! This week Love Notions releases their newest pattern Allegro. Something that is sure to become your new favorite sew for your summer wardrobe.

Allegro is a women’s pattern meant for light to medium weight woven fabric. It features both 5 inch & 9 inch length shorts, cropped pants, 2 skirt lengths (knee or ankle), an elastic waist with drawstring, faux fly, and optional pockets.

Pictured here are the 5″ shorts with back patch pockets, front pockets, cuffed legs, faux fly, elastic waist, no drawstring in a medium weight, mystery blend woven plaid from JoAnn Fabrics.

As with most woven patterns, it’s easy to use with knit fabrics. In testing I experimented with using rayon spandex for the ankle length skirt. The result? An amazingly soft, flowy, and insanely comfortable skirt! Best part? ZERO adjustments were needed! A truly effortless adaptation.

Look at that amazing side vent! It’s on both sides!

The versatility of this pattern can’t be beat! From now until July 5th the pattern is on sale – no coupon code needed.
