I have fallen in love….
In love with the spotty green cotton that has become the header of this site. It is SO VERY cute and at £4 per meter it is also helpfully cheap.
I got so much inspiration from this amazingly helpful sew-along for her lovely Sadie Shirt. Her plan is to use a large-ish t-shirt to make a pattern. But as I don’t own an overlocker I felt like a few adaptations may help.
So here is my Dotty Top tutorial!
Here are my actual pattern pieces (made, as ever from kids drawing paper!)
It really is a very cute closure – here is a photo
The finished article really did make us both happy. Here are some photos of it inside and outside
It’s gone through the wash a few times and it really does seem to be holding up well 🙂
For keen eyed readers- I decided this top was far too long so extra buttons will have to wait for another day…
