Simple Life Pattern Company: Meet Ayda

It’s freezing here in Michigan and I can’t keep myself from thinking SPRING!  So I wanted to remind you of an amazing pattern that is perfect for any season!

Have you wanted a pattern, bought it and then made it right away!? Well that was me on April 15, 2015.  Simple Life Pattern Company (SLPco for short) had been in business for about 3 months and Ayda V-Back at the time was calling my name!

When the pattern first released these were it’s features:

Sizes 2t- 12 years
Circle skirt
Lace v-back option
Modesty or regular v-back option
& explanation of adding trim to back bodice (for added coverage or just because)

At that time my daughter was only 11 months old. Since it was too big already, I made a size 3t. Why 3t you ask!? Lol, well I made it bigger in hopes that she would wear it on her first trip to Disney. Which I hope will come true (we’ll find out in a year!)

I opted for the lace back with bias binding dress length


Well lets fast forward a little bit, November 12, 2015 hits. SLPco had some amazing news. While scrolling through my Facebook feed , I see there have been updates to  Girl’s Ayda and is now available in baby sizes NB-24 months! SAY WHAT! Which you can find HERE!


Naturally I buy Baby Ayda & download the newest version of Girls Ayda.
In case you missed the update during Ayda’s revamp week. If you purchased Ayda before the updates please go login to your account and download the latest version at Simple Life Pattern Co

The all new Ayda includes:
Circle Skirt and additional skirt options
Lace v-back, Regular v-back or modesty v-back
Also added instructions on how to add trim to the v-back. Lastly!

Ayda Baby’s and Girl’s if wanting to make separate purchase offers a 4 sleeve add-on options. Of course I bought the add on!
Add-on includes:
Long sleeve
3/4 sleeve
Short sleeve

Here is my latest creation using the Baby Ayda

12 month tunic length
Lace back option with lace bias binding

From cut to finish with no interruption it took me an hour. The instructions are written so well, you’ll be able to breeze through your first one. I love when there is minimal pieces which make working on your project easier and faster & minimize the amount of cutting and taping.

Many beautiful designs have been released by Simple Life Pattern Company in such a short amount of time. The 1 year anniversary is fast approaching on January 29th, 2016. If you haven’t had the opportunity to checkout the facebook fan pageSLPco Facebook business page or  website, make sure to stop by and take a look.
