I love this pattern. Like love it.
I loved it before I even put it on Harper’s cute little bod, but once it was on, I was even more sold on it.
This pattern is meant to be made with knit, and I have really loved sewing with knits this past little bit. It’s just so comfortable for kids, and there are a lot of fun prints starting to come out. If you are scared of sewing with knits, don’t be! And this would be a great pattern to start with.
Abby describes the pattern as a beginner level, and I agree with it. It’s a simply cut pattern, but it gives you a big impact. I love the dolman type look of this top stitched version. The arm holes are nice and roomy, giving Harper room to be the almost two year old that she is. Which is busy. She’s my climber, and loves to be chased.
The little pocket just about kills me. I love little details like this, and I love mixing patterns so this pattern pretty much fills both of those loves for me. Come on, isn’t it adorable?
The instructions in this pattern are very well written. There are lots of different options that come with this pattern; along with the top stitched version that I did, there is an option with banded neck, arms, and waist, along with a heart pocket or lace detail. Going through the pattern, the steps are laid out for each option and guides you through the process.
I love the simplicity of the top stitched version, but I’m also excited to make up some banded shirts for my girls as well. I have a feeling this could become my go to pattern for shirts for my girls!
