I'm so glad to be on this tour because it gave me a chance to sew for my niece, Evangelina, which it seems I haven't done in a really long time. I can't believe I'm sewing a tween pattern for my little niece! Before I start gushing on how pretty E is and how much she's grown, I need to let you know that this is the last day of the tour and the last day the coupon code will be valid in the Peaches and Peanuts Etsy shop for the Breeze Top Pattern. Get 25% off with the code BREEZETOUR at checkout. Oh and this pattern was given to me for the purpose of making something pretty to present on the tour, but all opinions are my own.
So let me start off by saying the design of this top is perfect for E. She's growing up and isn't so much into frills and ruffles anymore. She's starting to know what she likes and what she want to wear. For her its all about comfort.
I used knit fabrics to make the Breeze top. The stripes are a left over from a previous project and the plain white, a discounted knit bedsheet. I actually walked around the house for about a week with the stripes in my hand saying if only I had a white jersey knit, only to look a the pile of newly aquired and discounted bedsheets to realize that I did have white jersey.
The pattern was easy to put together and the step by step directions were well explained, I was able to put it together in an afternoon. I also like the fact that it was designed for the use of both woven and knit fabrics.
Now tell me she isn't gorgeous!
Don't be shy and visit the other stops on the tour, and go all the way to the end of this post because there's a giveaway...free patterns, and gift cards at the Ribbon Retreat!
Until next time, xx.
