Sewing For Little Girls...So Much Fun!


I have so much fun sewing for the 2 little girls in my life, Julianna, age 5 and her little sister Brooklyn, and now that shirt orders have slowed down a bit, I have time to make some pretty things for them!


 Front of Ruffle Top-- washable "silk" flower accent added by me.


This top/tunic is super fast and easy to make. While I could have just looked at the photograph and drafted my own pattern, I do not think it is fair to get design inspiration from an Etsy shop, without paying the Designer/Pattern-maker for their ideas.  This pattern is called "The Double Ruffle Top", and comes as a download from the Etsy pattern shop, 
 "Little Lizard King"  (<--- link to shop)


Back of Ruffle Top-- The ties come through 2 buttonholes in the back bodice.


The pattern instructions are written for beginners (no interfacing, exposed seams). More advanced sewists will know where to use more refined techniques, and that interfacing the bodice will give a more "finished" look to this little top.

In addition to interfacing the bodice, I decided to add one of my -Washable "silk" Flowers- to the front bodice, in order to balance the bow on the back of this top. If you would like to see the tutorial I wrote about making these floral embellishments....CLICK HERE for The Washable "silk" Flower Instructions.

pam ... i really love it that you promote independent pattern makers ... it's so nice to see your work coming to life from *local* pattern makers, rather than from the pages of burda/ottobre ... don't get me wrong, i love burda and ottobre, but sewing from these patterns makes it easier for those of us who do not own ottobre or sew from burda to make these similar darling dresses/clothing ... keep up the great children's sewing ... it's adorable ...

take care .... darlene


ps ... can't wait to see the victoria jones men's shirt pattern done up .... just sayin' ;-)))
