I had so much fun creating this Fun ‘n Frilly Top that my daughter had to tell me to stop playing around and get the pattern finalized! I was constantly coming up with different options and then mixing up the look by adding trims and embellishments and using different fabrics and color combinations. My last count was 15 tops….I think I was getting a little too carried away!
‘Sew’ the final pattern has an elasticized neckline giving it a feminine, peasant look but without the sleeves. It can be worn with the frill around the neckline or off the shoulders and I’ve provided 3 Top Options for you to choose from. Which one will you make first?
Option 1 is the short top that finishes at the waist with an elastic casing for a clean, cool look. Or you may prefer to leave it loose.
Have enough tops and want to make a dress?
You can make that too with the BONUS Dress Option!
This pattern is so quick, easy and fun to make that I’m sure you’ll be trying ALL the options. And because it has the elastic waist and neckline it is super flexible too. Meaning that this one pattern will fit 18 inch dolls such as the American Girl doll, the taller 20 inch Australian Girl doll and the smaller 17 inch Baby Born doll.
Any light to medium weight woven fabric is ideal for this pattern but it can also be made with knits.
As with all my patterns, you also get access to step-by-step video instructions where I show you how to make the top and dress.
