Pier 7 Top by Terra’s Treasures. I’ve made a Pier 7 Top (here) and shared my thoughts on it, and it’s a great throw-on top that isn’t fussy. I believe she’s working on a cap sleeve for the top too, which makes it even better (in my opinion). It’s even on sale right now for $6.97.
Washi Dress and Expansion Pack from Made by Rae. This is such a fun, versatile pattern when you add the expansion pack. I love the collar options and that it’s easy to dress up or down.
Piper Dress/Top from Violet Field Threads. Sweet little top in front; dressy bow in back. I love the sleeve options on this dress and the optional peter pan collar. I would bring the back up a little to give more coverage, but I love the look of this darling top.
Everyday Elegance Top from Patterns for Pirates. This loose tunic is fun and flattering. I love the mandarin collar and v-neck. It looks super comfortable while being great for everyday. I sewed up a navy blue version here and it is a super loose fit, so be prepared. I took mine in a LOT.

Yep the hubs stated for me to get out of tshirts as well. So I went shopping and ended up coming back to my own patterns and making a few.
Those tops are just adorable and I will pin them for later garment sewing.
The blessing and curse of sewing. 🙂 Thanks for pinning!
You already mentioned the Sugar Pop top, I can’t wait to sew that one. I have the Marigold top, which I also can’t wait to sew, mostly because I love the little collar. I think they make you look more dressed up. I love the Anna and the Lucy, those are way cute. One that I have been sewing lately is the easy tee from it’s always autumn. I have done the anthro drop version, with the knit on top and the woven on bottom. It looks fabulous, and it is so simple to wear! I have been loving the… Read more »
Ooh, I forgot the Marigold! thanks for reminding me. I’ll have to go check out Autumn’s tee–mixing knit and woven is such a fun look.
Oh this is brilliant! I’m loving the inspiration for updating my wardrobe. I haven’t made any of these and I’m usually a total tee-shirt girl but now I’m keen to try these and update my look!
Oh, I’m glad they’re inspiring you, Jen! It’s so fun to mix things up a little.
What a great idea, I love the look of the Natalie Top. If find it far too easy to stay in my basic T Shirts!!
I’m loving the Natalie as well–it’s in my “to sew” list!
All of these are great! I’m totally on a shirt sewing kick right now since having my baby I’m eager for some new shirts.
Yes! These are great for changing bodies!
Boy am I sick of tee shirts too! I guess by the end of the summer I see that’s all we’ve been wearing. I love the Natalie and plan to give it a try. Thanks!
I so agree! I made up the Natalie (I’ll show it next Monday) and it’s a great sew. I hope you get a chance to make one!
I am looking forward to it. I have a fabric in my stash that I’m thinking will be great so I will be ready. I have enjoyed many of your blog posts and “hacks” and enjoy your style. This should be a fun week! Thanks!
That is so sweet of you to say–thank you Peggy!
