I made a little top!

And I think it's so cute! Apparently the girl likes it too, as she's actually wearing it, whee! Maybe I should just give up on sewing dresses for her, at least for a while, as she doesn't seem at all interested in wearing them. Maybe I'll stick to tops for a while.
I saw this top on Flickr, and wanted to make something similar. So I took some measurements (from a very unwilling child) and drew up a simple pattern. As I didn't want to make a direct copy of sparklecandace's top (not that I even own any doilies that I could use..) I decided to use some polka dot farbic on the top, just for fun. :) I'll definitely be making more of these, and I already know a few improvements that I'll make for the next one.
Oh, and the best thing about the top? It was super-fast and easy to make! What could be better than that? :)


  1. Lovely! I adore the top and think it is even better than the inspiration top.

  2. Kitten - thank you so much! I'm making another one, a different version, hope to be able to finish it today. :)

  3. Love all your creative ventures Nina! You are so right about having the cutest kids ever.

    You do have the cutest kids! And that top is adorable, I love it!
