My good friend Suz has just released a new pattern, the Issie Top! I am so flattered to have been invited for the pattern tour… And of course, and I am delighted to show you the Issie I made for my daughter Ines.

PATTERN: Issie Top by Sew Pony. The Issie Top is a pattern for a sweet and girly stretchy top and it comes with lots and lots of options. I choose the view with two side ruffles and no cuffs and I made a little change to the original pattern: I lined the ruffles. (Why can’t I just follow the instructions?!) Because my ruffles were lined, I made a small change to the construction of the top: I sandwiched the ruffles in-between the side and the front/back upper pieces. Of course, to do so I had to split both upper pieces into side front/middle front and side back/middle back and add seam allowances to those pieces.  Much easier to do then to explain, I must say… Anyway, the Issie top was a breeze to sew. The fitting was perfect and Ines was really happy to wear it.



FABRIC: Blue cotton french terry (main fabric) and printed viscose knit (ruffles lining) both from my stash. (Yeah! I feel so happy to sew nice clothes without the need of buying more fabric…) There is not much to say about the fabric I picked this time. It is ok quality (I’ve been spoiling my kids with the wonderful Nosh Organics and they are becoming kind of picky, especially when it comes to knits…) and I hope it survives the playing and washing as I am sure this top will be worn over and over again.

So, I hope I have inspired you to sew this cute top… You can get your copy of the pattern with a nice 10% discount throughout the tour with the code: ISSIERELEASE10 at Sew Pony Shop. By the way, the pattern is available not only in English but also in Dutch and French.
