An's work is amazing - and I'm sure much more professionally finished than mine! The outer fabric is from a vintage sheet - sooo soft (and no wrinkles!). Perfect spring fabric. I lined the bodice and sleeves with some pink polka dotted fabric I also had on hand.
and how there is one pink flower at the seam on the front that matches up so well you'd think I'd planned it. I didn't - but I'm tickled about it nonetheless.
It's just a basic bodice that I drafted from a t-shirt for another project, then modified slightly for this top - and it fits her perfectly...well, now it does.
It was my first attempt at a flutter sleeve, and I didn't do enough research - a little too much winging this time. Winging is actually an appropriate word because she looked like she was about to take flight the first time I put it on her, the sleeves were so poofy! I pinched them in a little. They are still a bit bigger than I would have planned on, but not so much that I'm going to make any more alterations.
I lined the sleeves with the pink dots, too. I like how finished it looks.

My little Lisi Lou (and her wardrobe) thanks you, too.
An's going to be putting out a pattern for her version of this top! yeah!! With lots of variations, as is her generous way. Can't wait!
