The essential Back to School wardrobe sewing patterns
Since we have to start thinking about back to school, we suggest approaching it from an angle you love: sewing! It is indeed time to start thinking about the children's back-to-school wardrobe. Focus on timeless, mixed, simple, and basic patterns that will allow you to dress them all year long. Whether it's for school or daycare, you should be able to find what you're looking for in our selection.
Don't forget that our #ikateedefirentree2022 sewing challenge is underway! You can participate on Instagram, with 3 vouchers of 50€ to win. Here is some inspiration to participate before September 7, 2022.

Milano is the essential apron dress for the first day of school! With ruffles or without, with large straps crossed in the back and an elasticated waist, this pretty model is a basic of the little girls' wardrobe. It can be worn with a Stockholm or Electre blouse. This easy-to-sew model can be made in any fabric you like: corduroy, double gauze, denim, or French Terry.
Charlie sweatshirt in a waffle fabric and sherpa lining for the hood
Vancouver sweatshirt and Charlie sweatshirt in fleece
For back-to-school or summer, the Vancouver sweater pattern adapts to all seasons thanks to its different options. In a sleeveless version with trendy shoulder pads, it will particularly appeal to teenage girls. With a hood and nicely puffed sleeves, it will keep them warm in the middle of winter. And because we also like to sew for ourselves at the beginning of the school year, the Vancouver pattern also exists for women. As for the Charlie sweatshirt pattern, it's a must-have! A hoodie with a button placket at the shoulder is perfect for the cooler seasons.
Vancouver pdf sewing pattern available from 3 to 12 years old, for women from 32 to 52 (french sizes), and as a duo women/children. Sewing Pattern Charlie is available from 3 to 12 years old. Both patterns are available in PDF or paperback.

The wide openings on the sides will let your pretty blouses or patterned tee-shirts show through. This pattern is available in two lengths, you can sew it easily in corduroy or denim. And if you want to match all your children, the London dress or dungarees pattern will fit the smallest.

This simple, loose-fitting, comfortable, and super easy-to-put-on dress thanks to the buttoned placket in the back, is a wardrobe basic revisited by Ikatee.
