the Nessie top-a new knit top pattern!


woohoo! I am super duper excited to announce the release of my newest pattern-the Nessie top! You probably saw my posts last week starring the basic Nessie and the two variations….this versatile knit tee pattern features a bevy of options-the basic Nessie has a comfy, swingy fit, a hi-lo hem and is perfect for showcasing a favorite print. Other variations include a peter pan collar, color-blocked front bodice, and three sleeve lengths: short sleeves, 3/4 length sleeves, and long sleeves! I’ve had so much fun putting this one together-and have become a bit addicted to sewing them since they are so quick! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! Also a huge thank you to my testers! They were so helpful and made some adorable Nessies. (I’ll round them up in a post sometime in the next while!)

The PDF pattern comes with 18 pages of instructions, tips, and helpful charts, in color of course! It includes 10 sizes, from 6-12 mo all the way up to a size 8!
