Anna Top from Shwin Designs. The curved bodice and one-piece sleeves are a fun take on a simple top. And the single-button closure in the back is easy for getting on/off. I hacked the Anna Top and used it to finish a refashion here, and really liked how it fit. The colors were awesome too.
The Natalie Top by Liola Patterns. This top is a great length, I love the pleated front, and the button tab sleeve detail. It looks easy to wear and super cute. This was another pattern I used for my Momiform Makeover and its been great. I ended up making the top opening smaller so I didn’t have to wear a layer under it and sewed it in a voile. I would love to make another in a rayon challis though.
The Lucy Top by Shwin Designs. How cute its this? A double-button closure gives it a simple silhouette, but so unique. And it would be easy to add a little length if I was worried about coverage.
Danica’s Women’s One-piece Top by Kids Create Couture. This is a fun, simple top, and I love the belt tie. It looks like it would be simple to create, and fun to wear from the park to a girls’ night out.
I know I’m ready to add a few of these top patterns to my wardrobe, and I’ll be sure to share them along the way!
So which of these top patterns would you like to sew?

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!
