The "Tangled" Top

So here's the little top I worked on while I could have (should have?) been weeding yesterday.  It took me awhile to decide exactly what I wanted to do, but in the end I went for simple.  Sophie likes to dress herself, sometimes numerous times a day, so I wanted something that would be easy for her to take off and on.  No zipper, no buttons.  I ended up using the Portabello Pixie "Claire" dress pattern that I blogged about awhile back, only I left off the apron and shortened the skirt.
The sun was shining so brightly when I took this picture...but we're not complaining!

I wasn't sure at first if I liked all the "poofy-ness", but Sophie loves it!  And the longer she wore it, the more I loved it, too.   She put it on first thing this morning and kept it on all day.  A few minutes ago I suggested that we take it off so she could change into jammies, but she promptly rejected that idea.  I think she thinks she's going to sleep in it.

She wore this to church today, and got so many compliments.  I must admit, it did turn out pretty darn cute.  I think this top would look so sweet with little capris, too.

Now I'm thinking that I need to make matching tops for the other two skirts I've made her.  Oh, if only there were more hours in the day!


  1. Very cute! I love it! It would look adorable with capris, or with a little pair of jeans too!! Good job!!

  2. That is super cute! And fits sophia's personality perfectly. I am thinking when we move back and or if get stationed at fort lewis you will have to teach me to sew!!! Because I already want you to make and or teach me how to make pillow covers and a shower curtain. And in the future when tyler and I have a kid a diapear bag out of his multi cams!
