Making the Izzy Top

The izzy top is a free pattern you have to try out for girls.

Izzy Top Details

Pattern Name and Designer: Izzy Top from Climbing the Willow

Price: Free

Pattern Options: Top with button tab closure and lined bodice.

Size Range: 18 mo. to 12

Size I Made: 18 months and 3

What I Like: Its a super cute top and its a fast sew. My girls have loved theirs.

What I Don’t Like: Its a little big and bulky where the skirt attaches, but overall good.

Modifications: I enclosed the skirt seam in the bodice for a cleaner look and lengthened the 3. I also added trim.

Would I Sew it Again: Yes, but I haven’t yet. Its a fun top, but I prefer the Maggie Mae from Shwin Designs. However, the Izzy is much faster.

    I did the same as you, i.e. encased the skirt part between the two layers of the top for a neater finish I used the pattern for a top and a pyjama top. You can see the results here.

      There’s another larger version available now on Craftsy that goes up to a size 12 I believe.

    I have the same comment as the people above. I would love to see the tutorial or instructions as well.


    with so many people wanting and asking how to make this top surly someone can up load how to make the izzy top there is nothing out there on how to sew it up.
    all the sites that say they have it don’t or have closed.
    way to frustrating!!!!

    I too am looking for instructions/tutorial on how to sew the Izzy Top. It’s a cute top…looks easy enough to do…but I need to see something in print…at my age, my 2nd sight isn’t working too well. Serious, please send instructions. I’d like to make for Christmas gifts.
    thank you in advance.

    After searching high an low for some instructions for this top, I found some! They’re in Spanish but if you don’t read Spanish you can use a translation website or just figure it out from the pictures.
