reversible wrap top tutorial and free pattern for birch fabrics! (oh, and a giveaway!)

I’m so excited to share this top with you today over on the Birch Fabrics blog! It’s a reversible wrap top with cute little flutter sleeves! And as a bonus-I have created a free pattern for you to use! (available in 3 sizes: 12-24 mo, 2/3T, and 4/5…if you do use the pattern, please follow my blog as a courtesy!) I got to play around with the gorgeous new Eiko line from Birch Fabrics. It’s organic cotton-I love this stuff. It’s got a great feel and drape and was perfect for this little wrap top.  Their fabric is produced from 100% organic cotton, and printed with low impact dyes. I used Stamp Stripe in Pool, and Birds & Blossoms in Paprika to sew up this top!

Sadie LOVED that she got two tops in one-she seriously couldn’t decide which was her favorite. I’m partial to aqua, but I’ve got to admit, the red totally won me over!

You decide. :)

and make sure to head over to check out the full tutorial and free pattern! Did I mention I’m excited about the free pattern!? Well…..I am!

Sorry about the limited sizes…..this pattern has only been tested by me in the 4/5 size, and it’s not perfect, but it is FREE. Seam allowance is 3/8″ on the pattern. I may come back to it someday and grade it up, but no promises! I would also say it runs a little small. For personal use only please.

But first a few more million pics.

and then you can enter below to win your choice of TWO yards of fabric from the Eiko line!
Which you can see a little bit of below. Gorgeous colors right? Woohoo!

Onto some more pics. You can see her cute little skinny jeans in action here, and her new faux Toms. Adorbs!

  19. Such a lovely pattern! I have already printed it out but do have a question, Does the pattern include seam allowance or not?

  20. @Popcorn-it does include 3/8″ seam allowance!

  21. Thank you so much for the pattern!!

  22. I love both colours – cannot believe how big S is getting – all grown up!

  23. I’ve just received a couple of yards of fabric from birch fabrics, as part of my “flip this pattern” winning prize, and I can tell you they are gorgeous!
    I would love to have some more!

  24. It really is a great fabric collection and the top is adorable!

  26. This top is precious!! I really want to try 1 for both my girls!

  31. Gorgeous! Entered!

  32. Quiero……..!

  33. Gorgeous fabrics!
    I’m off to check out the pattern – thanks!!

  34. Oh wow these are just gorgeous! thanks for sharing!

  35. Love this pattern! It wasn’t until I started making it for the second time that I realized the sizing key doesn’t match up to the sizes listed on the pattern. Do you think the largest size runs closer to a 4/5T (on the pattern) or a 3/4T (on the key)? Thanks!

  36. @Teri Olson Thanks for pointing that out, my bad! It should be updated soon in the pattern, the largest size fits my Sadie (who wears a 4T) pretty loosely, and she has a 21″ chest measurement. Hope this helps!

  37. Jess I just had to comment that this is so, so cute. Gotta love a wrap top and it looks super adorable with her skinnies and faux toms!! Nice work.

  38. Hi, Wanted to know what pattern you used for the skinny jeans? The fit looks great. Thank you.

  39. I love this pattern! Made it last night and it whipped up so easily and so, so cute. It will be a great staple. I changed it up a little to use buttons instead of ties, and blogged about it here. Thanks for the pattern, Jess and Birch! http://sleepingisforsissies.blogspot.com/2013/08/my-buttoned-version-of-cino-reversible.html

  42. Thanks for posting a great free tutorial and pattern. I made up the top for my13 month old niece for Christmas and it turned out really sweet! I posted my version here: http://sewnbyelizabeth.blogspot.com.au/2013/12/merry-christmas-more-hand-made-gifts.html

  43. where is the tutorial for the wrap top? I have downloaded the pattern but can’t find the tutorial. The link the is meant to take you – takes me to a christmas tree skirt pattern. Can anyone help please?

  44. Thank you!! I just made one for my little miss and it’s absolutely lovely! And SO easy! I see many more of these sweet little tops in our future :)

  45. Jess, we are doing a review of your reversible wrap top on our blog today.

  46. Cute top!! I helped a friend sew one today and can tell you a super easy and quick way to finish hem. Last step: turn top inside out with right sides of hem together. Sew hem seam (about 1/2″ width) leaving small opening for turning garment right side out. Press hem and top stitch. Makes a very neat finish, and less tricky.

    Hopefully my directions are clear.
