simple top for girls of all ages


Here's an easy top I made for Aud last summer, but never got around to posting. I used this tutorial, which was super simple and straightforward, for the basic construction, adding a band of contrasting fabric along the bottom.

I was reminded of it recently when I saw this lovely, grown up version. Who'd have thought? Doesn't it look like a variation on the simple pillowcase dress that so many folks have made, including myself? Never really thought of making an adult version, though. I may have to go find myself some printed silk...

I'm completely intrigued. Audrey's is so very cute, I love it. Make one for yourself and model it for me. Actually, I thought that WAS you in the photo from BR, until I read the credit. I was very impressed with your self portraiture.

Thanks, Gigi. And, Larissa, I'm truly flattered. And a little worried about your eyesight. :)
