Sunny Top in Arrows and Dots

I'm so thrilled to be a part of SewVery's Sunny Dress & Top Tour!  It's a wonderful pattern with different design options, so that you can make several pieces with the one pattern.  I love patterns with versatility.

During the tour week the pattern can be purchased for 20% off using code SUNNY20!

When the Sunny Dress first came out in sizes 5-7, I had planned to modify it for my size 3T girls.  Luckily Veronica decided to expand the sizes and I was able to test!  You can see my dress version here.

This is the Option B Top, my fav.  The top fits my girls just right and is something they can get on and off themselves when I keep the back tied.  

 The sleek A-line shape allows elements like fun fabric and the adorable back ties to shine.  
(all fabrics were from JoAnn Fabrics) 

Look at that neckline.  It sits perfectly where it should and doesn't shift when she's running and jumping around the playground.

I prefer the back ties styled straight down, but they're also long enough to style them crossed.  

The design of the pattern back inspired me to make some matching shorts with side bow pockets.  They're modified Elegance & Elephants Bubble Pocket shorts.  I almost changed the bows to the contrasting arrow fabric, but my little one saw it this way and told me - "don't touch my outfit mama".  Well okay then mini designer...

I plan to sew some more Sunny tops since it's so quick and cute (stay tuned), but in the meantime make sure to check out all the other versions of the pattern during the tour this week!

There is also a giveaway for 2 free patterns!
