This top came together beautifully with an enclosed seam between the yoke and skirt. The arm holes are finished with bias and there is a placket in the back for easy dressing. I love the girly ruffle! The construction is a bit different than other patterns I usually sew, so be sure to read the instructions fully or you may skip a step and end up using your seam ripper more than you like. If you follow the tutorial it is a fairly simple sew. The shorts are a very fast sew. They took me 10 minutes! I love a good pair of knit shorties that can be paired with a variety of tops.
The fit was great. My daughter is the exact measurements for a size 1, so that’s what I made. She will be able to wear this outfit all summer long. As you can see from the pictures, she was really enjoying playing in it! I will be sewing more of these, especially the shorts. They will be a staple in her wardrobe for years to come!
