Fawning over the Fawn Lily Top | Mabey She Made It #fawnlily #sewing #kidsclothes #willow&co

I got to sew up a brand new pattern recently–the Fawn Lily Top and Dress by Willow & Co.–and I’m in love with it. Like every time Saige wears it I stare at her shirt all day long in love. This super cute pattern hasn’t been released yet (but will be soon!) but I die a little every time I see it.

There are several different options to this pattern, and I chose to start with the cross-over yoke. It’s SO CUTE! With the piping detail and the crossover piece, it stands out as a show piece all in itself. The yoke is what made me HAVE to make the pattern in the first place.

Then there’s the 3 skirt options–I went with the pleats, and love it although I’ve seen some fabulous versions of all three skirt options. Out of necessity, I did the tunic length instead of the dress version (which has above and below the knee options) which would have also been adorable.

I also love the sleeve on this top/dress. The way it’s set in and the way it sets things apart makes it really fun to mix and match fabrics. I wanted something that I wouldn’t have to iron, and this floral fabric was just the right choice. It’s got some polyester in it, and I can pull it out of the wash and it looks awesome. I wish I had more of it!

I paired it with a dusty rose polka dot that came from my mom’s stash–I had just enough to get the yoke and 2 pocket pieces out of it (oh yeah, there are pockets in this cutie)–the rest of the pockets are in a third coordinating stripe, which is cute, but not visible.

Saige has had fun wearing it, but I’m the one who swoons every time she puts it on.
