Our new Children’s Corner Bishop is the classic, raglan-sleeved bishop with smocking around the neck. It falls just below the knee. The revised Bishop pattern is inspired by the original Betsy, Gwen, and Ki bishop patterns by Elizabeth Travis Johnson, and includes two views that close in the back. VIEW A has an easy self-faced placket with a seam up the center back. VIEW B has a continuous bound placket, and the back is cut on the fold. Choose from four different sleeves: banded puff, angel, and long & short smocked sleeves.
We have completely updated our Bishop pattern in August 2017. This new pattern has an expanded size range now include newborn and 3 months. The instructions have been completely re-written with step-by-step diagrams. Each size and piece is unstacked now and is based on the original Elizabeth Travis Johnson Bishop designs.
