1 new rashguard, 1 free pattern, 1 big giveaway + 1 big sale!

Saskia Smith

This is the big one.

The Wolf and the Tree are releasing a new rashguard: Abby's Daybreak Rashguard. This is the complement to George and Ginger's Daybreak Rash Guard, to complete the Mommy & Me look! 

The Rashguard features several sleeve lengths: sleeveless, short sleeves, medium sleeves + long sleeves, as well as 3 different lengths - bikini, crop top and full length!

Another awesome thing about it? It can be made for everyday wear using regular knit! <3 That means, this pattern can carry you through the whole year!


Next up, the free pattern! I first drafted this pattern in 2014. It has been on my 'want to release' list ever since then and went through a few re-drafts with new elements, inspired by Pinterest gorgeousness. I am so in love, and my girl (who is incredibly picky and any sewn creation is a gamble for final approval by her) walked in slow motion towards the top, gasped and gently touched the garment. Biggest smile. And immediate request to wear it. Win.


- Sleeveless and Short Sleeves

- Pleated front skirt (with easy to follow 'Pleat Stairs')

- Wide Neckband that meets in the middle

- Upward dipping bodice

- Hi-Low Front/Back Seam

- Optional Faux Camisole

- Sizes 2T - 10


Here are some more ideas on how to quickly change up the pattern:

- Use the sleeves from Abby's Road Trip Tunic to create a year-round garment with sleeve length from sleeveless to long sleeve, 3/4 sleeve, short sleeve and medium sleeves! 

- Gather the skirt rather than pleating it!

- Make the Neckband 4 times (or more) longer, finish all edges of it before attaching it and use it as a front tie!

- Add a bow or a button in the front! (Think oversized bow <3)

- Add length to it and quickly turn it into a dress!

- Add a little bit of (carefully calculated) length to skirt top and the bodice bottom and hide the chest seam on the inside with a French Seam or Flat Felled Seam!




I hope you enjoy the pattern as much as I do! And keep in mind, pleats sometimes like to shift - a little glue and/or careful pinning might help you out with it!
