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.

So which of these top patterns would you like to sew?

Those tops are just adorable and I will pin them for later garment sewing.

Thanks!!!!

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 »

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!

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!
