By now my girls are more in need of Summer shorts, but I just couldn’t resist making another top for F! I confess I loved this pattern as soon as I saw it, but I resisted for a while. This pattern was exactly the style I like to dress my girls with but I thought that maybe I could adjust another pattern and have a similar result… After some time, I realised I would never adjust anything and I should just get the pattern and make it. So here it is! The pattern is the Myrantine by Citronille.
A couple of years ago I bought a RTW top for them that I loved and they looked so well in it. The top was identical to this pattern but it had ruffle sleeves and a bow at the back and I was looking for something in the same style. I am so glad I found it!
As you can see, instead of the ruffle sleeves I opted for a short sleeve and I did not add the bow. By now the girls prefer simple clothes, without bows or other kind of embellishment. 😦 I know, they are growing up and I knew this would happen one day. 😉
I made a size 6 but I think I should have adjusted to a size 4 in width, as F is growing in height but not so much in width! The only modification I’ve made to the pattern was turning the long sleeves (only option) in short sleeves and add an elastic and I am very pleased with how it turned out. This way the pattern can be used all year round!
The fabric is a dobby dot cotton lawn from here. This is one of my favourite fabrics for Summer, so light! For the bias I used a bit of Liberty. It is a good way to use every scarp and I think it looks cute even though you can’t really see it.
I still have a few more tops to make to the girls (so many plans!) but I think I will make them some shorts next! 😉
Have a lovely week! 🙂
