I make a lot more than I blog lately, this little top being a case in point.
I made this, and another exactly the same (well apart from the buttons...) way back in November last year - at Sewjourn.
This is the Finch top - one of the collection of patterns from Clever Charlotte that I have accumulated.
|A cheesy grin!|
It's fully lined and has this really lovely racer-back shape to it.
|Try to imagine it in summer without the necessary layering!|
Perfectly colour coordinated crochet flower hairclip by this clever lady.
|The buttons are just for show - for easy on and off.|
To make it quick and easy to get on and off I used velcro under the shoulder tab rather than proper buttonholes - the buttons here are just for show.
I also chose to omit the bow - I might do it on the next one but perhaps a little smaller - it's a bit oversized for me I think.
Definitely check them out - they are really classic kids patterns that are stylish but not too cutesy.
