3 Variations to Our Classic Johnny

3 Variations to Our Classic Johnny

We are so excited about our latest video lesson - Johnny Variations. Get 3 different variations of one of our favorite classic patterns, Johnny, in one video lesson! Susan will guide you through each look as you make the most of your pattern! Find the full supply lists below to help you get started.

Johnny with Redrafted Top: When we think of a playsuit for boys, Johnny is the first pattern that comes to mind. With this adaptation, you will redraft the front to allow for a bodice without a center front seam allowing for a blank canvas for a monogram, appliqué or any embellishment. Anything you want to achieve is possible with the drafting lesson we walk you through to achieve this look.

Johnny with Small Smocked Block: The pattern includes a view with a smocked insertion, however sometimes you just don’t have enough time to smock the full width of the romper. Or, if you are smocking a holiday-themed plate, it is nice to smock a small portion and finish the garment more quickly so your little one can enjoy wearing it the full holiday season.
