Issue 18??!?!? How is that so?? I remember joining the Pattern Revolution team back with One Thimble Issue 2 and have sewn something from nearly every single issue since! I’ll recap some of my favorites at the end of this post. But for now, let’s take a look at the Ladies Ballerina Tie Top from The Wolf and The Tree.
I sewed this top up in about an hour using this really beautiful sage green knit from Hobby Lobby. I made my top with the double sided tie option, medium sleeve length, and the neckband finish.
I love that the ties can wrap around the front, or across the back, can be sewn to the same side and tie across the body, etc. The styling options are endless!
The pattern also includes a cowl neck option, perfect for those in cooler temps! A huge size range, Ladies 0-22 US, makes this pattern very versatile for tweens through women! Also, the Ladies Ballerina Tie Top has 5 different sleeve options, making it a great year-round sew!
The pattern includes the layer printing option which allows you to print only the size(s) you want! Great for saving ink and paper!
If you’re looking to branch out into some self-care sewing, this would be the perfect beginner pattern! Sewing a top with stretch allows you some wiggle room in the fit and the simple construction will have you feeling confident and successful.
Wanting to make Mom-and-Me outfits? The Ballerina Tie top also can be made in girls sizes!
