I've been wanting to make this pattern for so long! When I had enough fabric left over from my yellow dress, I decided that now was the time to try out this pattern! :) Unfortunately, I didn't have much fabric to work with, so I had to cut the the pattern out on the bias--which made me nervous. However, it doesn't seem to have affected the way the top fits.

I made a size 8, with no alterations . . . it is super easy to make, and has great instructions--it came together like a dream.

This top is comfortable and classy--I am happy with it, and am definitely going to make some of the other versions of this top.


  1. So cute! I love this pattern- especially your wearign it with a contrast print. Nicely done.

  2. Thank you for remind me of this pattern. Your version is so fresh and cute!

    Also, would you consider adding the Google Friend Connect and email newsletter widgets? It really helps others keep up with your posts.

    1. Thanks :)

      I added the 'follow by email' widget. I'm still discovering all the different widgets lol
