Here’s my first project for KCWC… A top for my girl.
It’s like, 80 degrees here in central VA, so I know she’ll get some use out of it for a couple of more weeks before having to wear long sleeves underneath it.
I used an old Urban Outfitters dress of mine to make the yoke and the ruffled capped sleeves… and used the buttons from that dress on the front and the back. I then used an dark teal blue jersey for the rest. Lace hem tape to add a little somethin’ to the front, and then instead of bothering to hem the bottom, I just sewed it to the raw edge!
It’s such a gorgeous day today. Off to the park…

So pretty! Did you use a pattern (or modify) for this? Love the lace details. Have fun at the park!
Thanks Monica! Yeah, I did use a pattern (Simplicity 3511) but I changed the neckline and also played around with the sleeves. It’s the same pattern I used for the dresses in the last post.
