A Sunday post here, as I'm a guest over at Family Ever After. Rach graciously invited me to be part of her Sewlebrity Crush series.When I started this top, I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out, as many of my non-pattern (and sometimes with pattern!) projects tend to be. I am pleased with the results and even more pleased with how Divine loves it. My girls now ask me when I make them something if I put "no big dill" on it and love to hunt for it when I do. Can you find it?
I don't see a whole lot of "older" girl tutorials, so I'm hoping this one will make some of you happy. In fact, I think I may need to make one of these for myself.
this looks so comfy and has so much style! agree it would be fantastic as an adult top, too. great tutorial. :)ReplyDelete
Oh... what a beautiful shirt. Really! :)ReplyDelete
Lovely, I think I will make one for myself...I have the perfect piece of fabric that has been waiting for inspiration!ReplyDelete
Love how this looks so easy to wear, casual but with so much effortlessness style. I like the idea of an adult version even though I'd love to wear some of the younger stuff you come up with anyway! Thanks for sharing. I still need to dust off that sewing machine...ReplyDelete
OMG! I want this in an adult size! I would want to wear this every single day! :)ReplyDelete
I saw you at Family Ever After and I'm so excited to find your lovely Blog. Rach was sooo right when she described your blog as the Mecca for sewing blogs. I'm so excited to start following along and learn some things. Have a wonderful day!ReplyDelete

What a beautiful top. I think I may just have to try this in my size. Since my girls are still "little" I'll stash it away in the mental file for when they get bigger.ReplyDelete
Thank you for being so kind to guest post on my blog. It is seriously a treat to have you. Thank you SO MUCH!!!ReplyDelete
What a great top! There are far too few patterns for older girls of the tween age. This is absolutely perfect! (and yes, I could see myself in it as well)ReplyDelete
I just love this! What a great big girl top, that is still quite appropriate for the little girl in all of us!ReplyDelete
Thank you thank you thank you. Older girl tutorials/patterns are like hens teeth.ReplyDelete
This is fabulous! I would love one for myself. A tutorial for us "older" gals would be great!ReplyDelete
Thank you for an older girl tutorial. I do find less & less for my girls out there in blogland now that the youngest is 6. Wondering if that is a niche I should fill...hmmm... Thanks again!ReplyDelete
Fabulous shirt! I can't wait to check out the tutorial. So many of my friends with older girls bemoan the lack of cute-and-classic-and-not-too-hoochie clothes for their older girls. I'm sure you'll be hearing lots of "hoorays!"ReplyDelete
anyone have suggestions on where to find nice, but inexpensive, knits? or what to search for in terms of fabric composition? i'm kind of new at this...ReplyDelete
annie--rae of "made by rae" has a great post on knit sources here:ReplyDelete
She also talks about fiber content and type.
thank you, katy!!ReplyDelete
Oh yeah, I'm so putting this on my To-Do list. One for Abby and one for me! Thanks, Katy!ReplyDelete
beeeeautiful! i can totally see why divine loves it! i'm also loving your 'title photo' graphics!ReplyDelete
OMG....love this shirt.....I can't seem to find the tutorial though....am I blind today? lolReplyDelete
