I mentioned before that I had found some fabric in a line named "Isabelle" and , of course, had to buy some for MY Isabelle. I only had 1/2 a yard and I racked my brain for something to do that was not pillowcase/bandana style or a corset. Then a tutorial popped up yesterday for an adorable top, and I decided it was perfect. It's by Sew Totally Smitten.
And here is my version of her Cinderella top:
Pretend the pants match, she was really excited and wouldn't wait for me to find other pants - it was this or underwear for her =)
I love it =) I made a couple of mistakes when I enlarged the pattern a bit, totally my fault and the result of me trying to think at 9pm at night. It used every bit of my 1/2 yard - I seriously only had little scraps left over. I am definitely going to make another one, making it a dress, I think. I had never tried pleats before and they were kinda fun =) A little bit more work than gathering up ruffles, but easier and neater to sew onto the garment.
