Honey Stitcher's Circle

Updated: May 14, 2020

Enrollment in the Stitcher's Circle is now open! We will be starting our next Sew-Along on June 3rd and it is the Honey pattern! Honey has been my most popular pattern to date (although I think the next pattern that will release in just a few weeks is going to be very popular - sign up for the newsletter to be the first to know!) and with good reason - it is just a workhorse of a pattern! It is a simple knit pull over dress with multiple variations.

Honey comes with 3 different views as well as long and short sleeves. You can make it with a smocked skirt:

or with a separate smocked insert. Using an insert allows you to smock on broadcloth if you are not comfortable smocking on the knit. It also lets you use a solid color for the smocking and a great print for the dress!

You can also skip the smocking all together and make Honey with a gathered skirt and add some embroidery as I did for this version that was in Classic Sewing Magazine.

Here is a gathered high yoke Honey from Priscilla.

Or try a smocked insert Honey, from Kelli.

Kelli also used an insert for this version:

Both of these Honeys are View A with a smocked skirt.

And here is Florence's daughter in her adorable smocked skirt Honey.

One of the kit choices is this blue dot fabric and in this Honey you can see how the fabric looks slightly different when pleated.

I hope you will join me in the Stitcher's Circle as we work on our Honeys!
