Voile Top


My Mom made Leah some gorgeous new tops as a birthday present, and I’ve had the pictures to share since September!  This one is made from Anna Maria’s Little Folks voile and it is so adorable.  I found it hard to photograph, but it looks so sweet on Leah.

We tested out the elastic thread in the bobbin and had a blast with the shirring.  Though I wasn’t around for the finishing of the garment so I can’t vouch that Mom had a blast with the entire thing. I really like the pattern and the fit of the top, we bought the Emma Top tutorial from UpAndAway Patterns on Etsy.

I’m fairly new to garment sewing and but I think this is one that would have been very doable for me and would be great for a beginner, though I’ll readily admit it was great to just let Mom do it.

Thanks, Grandma!! We love our new top!
