this post at From an Igloo. The tutorial is for the ruffled jeans, but I loved the top! At the bottom of the post she does provide information on where she purchased the pattern, but I knew there were enough other free patterns/tutorials out there that I wouldn't need the pattern. However, if you would like to make this top and feel you need a pattern, now you know where to find it. :)
The tutorials I used to create my pattern are found here at Sew Like My Mom, and here at IndieTutes. You may recognize these from the dress I made for a friend's daughter (shown in this post, after the totes).
Every item is a learning experience. :) The fabric at the bottom was added because my initial pattern was too short. I even remembered to take seams/hems into account this time, so I'm not sure what happened! LOL Now I'm wondering if this top might also fit Shiloh so she could wear it with the capris I made her? She's a year and a half older than Jericho... and taller... but they have about the same girth. In fact, I think Shiloh may be slimmer! ;)
That's all for now! I'm thinking I might make a little skirt or capris to coordinate with this top, but that will depend on time, and whether or not I have suitable fabric (or a good JoAnn's coupon! *grin*).
