{Test} Orono top, Itch to Stitch

The Orono top is a very quick and easy top to be layered over some tee. The tulip front is really feminine and prevents the top from being boxy.

We are preparing our first trip to Universal Studios Orlando. My daughter watched all of the movies again, but that time she was more focused and even learnt some replicas, Longbottom’s words especially at the end of The Deathly Hallows Part 2. Very moving moment […]

Ellie and Mac’s Cold Shoulder Top

Ellie and Mac’s Cold Shoulder Top

Cold shoulder tops have been the new IT tops for the past few months. I had already made my DD one, but she wanted another. Instead of sewing the exact same top, I took advantage of Ellie and Mac‘s Wacky Wednesday where patterns are offered at the bargain price of $1 and bought the Lady Cold Shoulder Top. There exists the child’s Cold Shoulder Top, but Miss didn’t like the wide straps, too ‘tank-strap’ in her opinion.

I sewed this top in the early Fall, but I had not documented it yet!

I chose to buy the women’s top because Miss G can wear the XXS size according to the measurement chart.

This pattern offers a banded top, a tunic with ruched sides, and a dress. You can also sew 3 different sleeve lengths.

Miss G wanted to wear it ASAP so we sewed the long-sleeve version.

Her top

I traced the XXS and placed the pieces against her to modify the length. She wanted something between a top and tunic length, but without the ruches at the sides.

The fabric she chose is just extraordinary. I found it online (123cousez). What’s funny is that this shop is not far from home so I could purchase online and get my fabric at the lady’s home!!! No delivery fee and also a great way to assess the fabric!

I thought that she would love the multicolor unicorns, but the golden pineapples on a grey background stole her heart…and she was right. Gorgeous fabric!

The only donwside of sewing a ladies’ top is the deep front neckline. Actually, she will wear this top back to front!!!

Next top will have a raised front neckline!!!
