I had the hankering for a quick sewing project the other day so I pulled out some knits and made this little top for Sadie. I’m thinking that I should sew for Charlotte more, though…Sadie is such a stinker when it comes to photo shoots nowadays! Although once she gets down to business she always pulls through. (she usually needs the promise of a Squinkie and some candy. Sheesh she is getting more and more expensive of a model every week!)
It’s such a simple top, easy to put together, and I love the stripes with the solid top. I’m thinking I might have to make more for her! (cause really Charlotte has WAY too many tops right now…she’s growing into all of Sadie’s old stuff)
I cut the pattern in half higher up (add seam allowance when you cut the piece out), and extended the sleeves out like so. (similar to the Leah top but not so high)
Then I sewed it up the same as the colorblock tee, adding binding on the sleeves before sewing up the sides. I left the bottom hem raw since it’s jersey and won’t fray, and was a little short on her. It’s super easy because essentially there’s no sleeves to set in! yahoo!
