I’ve got a fun new, Off The Shoulder Top Sewing Pattern for girls to share with you today! This one is more for the older girls and it comes in sizes 6 to 14.
How cute is this off the shoulder top for girls? It’s basically a sized down version of my ladies top, but with slightly looser elastic and a halter tie (to compensate for the looser elastic, lol.)
I can not tell you how much my little missy loves this top! It took me a couple of tries to get it right, but this top is definitely a quick sew.
The first version I followed the same elastic cutting suggestions in the ladies top, but she complained about the tightness bothering her, so I loosened up the fit and just added a halter tie. (Although the top did seem to stay up without the tie, we didn’t want to take any chances.)
I used a light/medium weight stretch knit on her top and since the knit doesn’t fray, I was able to skip the step of “pre-finishing” the sleeve and bodice edges. (I did not have any trouble, but I’ve sewn about 6 of these tops now, lol. Everything just takes a bit of practice.)
I have to say, the trim really made this top. I think it came out even cuter than my version did! When choosing your fabric, definitely consider something that will coordinate with a fancy trim.
Ready to sew this top? This top is sewn the exact same way and the ladies top, (minus the halter tie and slightly looser elastic) so I reused the photos from the ladies top tutorial.Don't miss any more posts!
