Sadly, Pollylocker is still sick 😦 The lovely lady at the sewing shop is stumped, so she’s booked in with the technician. In the meantime, all my Made it Monday plans have had to be jiggled around, so things that don’t need an overlocker are coming first.
Today’s project is this gorgeous Reversible Wrap Top. It’s a free pattern, and comes in three sizes – 18-24m, 2-3 and 4-5. I’ve made the smallest. I used two complimentary Denise Schmidt quilting cottons, and if you play around with the lay out, you only need about 0.35m of each full width fabric.
I don’t think the pattern pieces are all that well thought out, but it’s an easy fix. I cut the back piece in half, and cut it out on the fold. I also traced the sleeve piece out on the fold with baking paper to create a new pattern piece, so both could be cut simultaneously.
This pattern is super easy and came together very quickly. Without my lovely little interruptions, you could easily have this cut out and made in 90 minutes. I made the 18-24m size, and when I tried it on Clara it didn’t have too much excess room, so I’d measure it up before choosing a size. It would definitely sit better on a baby who’s walking – can’t wait to see Clara wearing it with a little pair of navy leggings 🙂
