voile pierrot top

I was oh so lucky to get this lovely Pierrot Tunic pattern from Rae.  Seriously people, she puts out amazing patterns, great shapes, thorough, and so perfectly detailed (but not overly detailed so it’s like a novel kind of detailed, just the right amount).  And even if I didn’t think she was completely amazing (which I totally do), I would tell everyone to buy her patterns anyway.

So I had to cut up some voile (Innocent Crush by Anna Maria Horner) I had laying around.  Natalie first thought she wanted a dress, so I cut her a dress and by the time we were finished, it morphed a swingy comfy top with pockets sans ruffle (guess she has the right to change her mind, ha).  I felt slightly guilty cutting off the dress part, but those scraps will get used some way or another.

She actually likes the top, I think mostly because I kept having her try it on and tell me what she liked about it or what she wanted changed.  It was kind of fun!  I begged her to let me put on the pockets though, I couldn’t help myself.

That’s all for now!

    I’d feel guilty cutting it off too. That voile is great in the summer heat we have been having

    You are right, great pattern! I love the last picture… I wonder if this is what my hair looks like at stores after I try on a bunch of clothes! :-)

    love the top and the fabric is so *floaty* and the color is gorgeous on her …

    a question: after looking at rae’s site, i’m wondering if you took the pattern in on the side or cut it less wide … the sample she sewed looks to have way more fabric moving around it …

    whatever, it looks lovely …. darlene

    Glad you held your ground on the pockets…I think they really make the top. Super cute! The print is fun and pretty. Without a doubt that last photo is my fave of this post. She’s so cute and reminds me so much of my neice when she was that age.
