Where has this week gone? I have found far less time to sew than I thought I was going to. February is always so busy with school information nights and the like.
Yesterday I finished off this little top for Adelaide as part of Kid's Clothes Week. Not much upcycling of fashion takes place in a house that has too much fabric stashed away:
This is a simple top to sew and I've made it a few times since it first appeared in the range in 2006. In fact I sent a custom made one to Crown Princess Mary of Denmark when Princess Isabella was very young and found images of Isabella wearing it.
It was fun to sew this pattern again.
I am very partial to a flutter sleeve and use this detail a bit in various patterns. I also enjoy sewing the keyhole detail at the front of the top. It's a simple way to add interest to an otherwise plain front. With contrast bindings you can achieve a different look again too.
This was the top as it appeared in the range in 2006
Next I plan to make a pair of Puppet Show Shorts to go with the top.
