In five weeks the Summer holidays start and the girls’ wardrobe is almost complete. Still there are a couple (maybe a little more!) things I want to make but other than that it’s almost ready. We can’t wait for the good weather because, so far, we almost haven’t used light clothes this year!
After making the Eloise top for M, I had to try the Isabella for F. In fact, this top was requested by her, some time ago, when she saw the one Ana Sofia made for her daughter, in my Pinterest. She even said she wanted the exact same fabric, but her luck didn’t went that far. 😉
F is between sizes 6 and 8 for height but I decided to try the 6 and not size up because if it happened to be too short, M could always use it. So, I made size 6 for height with size 4 for width and I am pleased with the fit.
The pattern is not complex, the instructions are good and the details make this blouse beautiful and perfect for Summer. No need to say that the flutter sleeves are my favourite part of this pattern.
The fabric I used is Michael Miller Lattice Cotton Eyelet Aqua from here and the colour is so beautiful that I regret not having bought more! For the neck binding I used a Liberty print, as well as for the armhole facing, but that is not visible. 😉
This pattern also comes with a variation for an inset ruffle, instead of the flutter sleeves, that looks adorable. Will have to try that one too, another time.
Have a lovely week! 🙂
