As most of you know, Kids Clothes Week took place last week. Although I didn't quite sew an hour each day, I did take some time on Friday and Saturday to draft and sew this little top, which Mae calls her bluebird shirt :)
There are couple of little tweaks I want to make to the pattern before I sew another version, but I actually love it as it is right now! In fact, I'm actually looking forward to sewing the pattern again. And the last time I wanted to repeatedly sew a pattern that I drafted was the Izzy Top, so it's been a while!
The Bluebird Park fabric line by Moda (used here as well) is one of my all time favorites! The prints go really well with simple feminine pattern designs. I still have one more print with little yellow bunnies which I think I might use for the next version of this top.
Here's a little closer picture of the back, since it's kind of hard to see in the full length picture. The only problem that I can see is that I'm going to have to use a lot more sunscreen when Mae goes outside since she normally wears tops that cover a bit more ;)
I'm really happy with the inside of the top! I used french seams on the sides and the bodice seam is fully enclosed, so it looks almost as nice on the inside as it does on the outside :)
