A Little Girls Summer Top


Hi Everyone I made this little summer top for my grandaughter last week and now the sun has started to shine I hope she gets lots of chances to wear it.

I love the bright flowers on the fabric, it really makes you think of summer.

It fastens at the back with buttons and I put lots of different colour buttons on it to match the fabric.

I had my first go at making my own bias binding and I was really pleased with how it came together. I finished it with a big spotty bow.

It was fairly simple to make and I would encourage you all to give it a go. I got the pattern for this little top from a freebie with Sew magazine. Its also available in a fab sewing book called 'Making Childrens Clothes' by Emma Hardy. Hope you like it and thanks for looking.
