I was looking for a simple top pattern for a little girl...go ahead, look through the pattern books...I'll wait.
Yeah, they are few and far between. Most of the tops in the pattern books seem to be store-bought tee's. I was looking for something a little different...after making the dress pattern found in Simplicity 2377, I said to myself, "Self, you could easily make a top out of this." I opted for just lengthening the bodice front and back pieces about 10-ish inches ( I also made it go straight down from the armhole seam instead of tapering in). I also used the shorter neckline elastic like I did for the dress. That's it. Easy Peasy.
|I lengthened the sleeves on this top about an inch.|
|We went from fabulous to awesome possum by adding the matching top to this cute skirt. I wish I was young enough to pull this off.|
