An's patterns are so beautiful! very clean and nice designs, very well explained instructions, lots of photos...it's impossible to get lost and best of all: everything fits perfectly, all pieces match to perfection so pleasant sewing experience is guaranteed. Sizes go from 1 year to 10 years old, and you have many, many options to sew completely different tops or dresses for only $8! Just to learn how to install an invisible zipper to a fully lined bodice it's worth the price. But, don't worry! if you're afraid of zippers you can try the buttoned crossed back.
Here is my girl's new top. I chose to sew the crossed back top. I fell in love with it the very first time An posted a picture of it in her blog.
I used a white textured gauze, that had to be a top for myself, but happened to be the perfect fabric for this top ;)
To complete the outfit I also sewed some shorts in a solid green fabric that happened to be the perfect shade of green to match with the top!
and a hair bow in the same fabric I used for the top
You can find the pattern to make the bow -it's a free pattern by Oliver +S!- HERE
and they're so cute, so easy to make and use so little fabric that I couldn't help myself and added two more of them to the sides of the cuffs of the shorts
By the way, the patterns for the shorts is a free one too: The anyday banded shorts by Create and delegate. It comes in sizes 2 to 5, but you can easily adjust the pattern to make a bigger size as I did.
But, As I told you, my daughter loooooooves this top, so I had to make another one! This time an sleeveless version. It's VERY hot here at summer, we can easily reach 30-35ºC (85-95 ºF) so lighter clothing is a must during the sunny hours!
I'm sure it will get lots of use!
Thank you An for having me as a tester!
