Dots and Flowers for a Diva...

Bella's CrossOver Top

One of the things I like so much about Ottobre Design Patterns, is how easy it is to make liberal design changes to the basic style.

This top made for my niece Bella, age 8, started with the Cross-over Top, from Ottobre Design Issue 03/04, pattern#9. I modified it by adding center-front shirring, double sleeves...and lots of "lettuce" edging. I had such fun making this simple little top !

How adorable! Love the lettuce edging! I thoroughly enjoyed sewing for my nieces when they were youngsters . . . now that they're in their late teens/early 20's, all they want to wear is grungewear!

Sweet! You always make really lovely things for your nieces. And, you usually make complete outfits. OK--where are the pants?

Gwen...yes, this top has a skirt that coordinates with another top....but I forgot to take a photo!

Absolutely adorable! You are so good at mixing prints. Don't you just love lettuce edging? Which reminds me that I have a vintage Stephen Burrows pattern around here somewhere...
