I feel like this top, in this fabric, is screaming SUMMER!! This top is so cute with it’s flouncy sleeves and twirly hem!

I love the hi lo style of the skirt which is why I have been making quite a few of them lately. This top came together so easily, but plan ahead so you have enough room to cut the larger back skirt piece. A little blog reader insider info…I didn’t hem a single stitch on either of them tops!

I have seen around the sewing groups that some people are over floral prints, but I am just not there yet. The navy and white gingham print with small floral clusters is so cheery. I got this fabric at Sew Blessed Fabric.


And because one is never enough…I have a second top to share.

This Beautiful Day Top has the added sash, tied backwards. Had I noticed the “white out” spot, I wouldn’t have turned it. However, this is a perfect example of why you shouldn’t leave fabric in a window for 10 days. Sun bleached spots. Thankfully only on the sash, the top was safe!

So the pattern features:

Three sleeve options

Hi-low full twirl skirt

Tie belt

No trim pattern pages for quick assembly

Layers printing feature is included for this pattern for your convenience.

I am a single dog mom of two and we happily reside in a small house in Ohio. We spend our days playing fetch, digging holes in the garden, and sewing, lots of sewing. We have high hopes of moving to the mountains someday. The dogs don’t really know that yet, but they will understand. I shamelessly hoard fabric and feel slightly sorry for whoever has to sort my stash when I am gone. I am employed full time in a industry that requires little of my creativity, but basically lets me wear whatever I want. So it works out. I can usually be found behind one of my sewing machine avoiding human contact. I test a lot of clothing patterns and therefore always have a new outfit to share. You have most likely found my blog through some sort of sewing outlet and will quickly realize that I am sewing for a plus size body. For reference, I am 5'1 and wear a range from a 2-5x. Sizes change with every designer and you can't trust ready to wear sizing when you are making your own clothing. Your tape measure will become one of your most used tools and if you misplace them like I do, you should pick up several. I will be sharing the good, the bad, and the A-MA-ZING with you… So stay tuned. I will also try to teach you a few of my tricks along the way. People always tells me they want to learn how to sew. My best advice is you have to start. Just do it! You are going to mess up, you will break needles, you will ruin the pretty fabric, you will stab your fingers, but you will learn. You will make something and you will wear it. Someone will say, “I like your shirt.” and you will smile and say, “Thanks, I made it.” You will race home and make something else. Pretty soon you have made more good things than bad and you will feel proud of yourself and you should. I will be proud of you too. :) Ok, that is enough rambling, I have sewing to do. :) SequoiaLynn
