Does anyone else love the cute patterns designed by Create Kids Couture? Thought so! Well, if you follow them on Facebook or follow their blog, then you know that they've started offering one of their patterns for half off on Fridays. A couple of weeks ago, I jumped at the chance to purchase one of their most popular patterns--the Britney Bubble Top--during one of these Friday offers.
Britney's Bubble Top is so simple to make that I didn't wait long to whip one up for Miss Ella. If you only use one fabric (instead of two coordinating fabrics which is an option) then there are literally on three things to cut out for this shirt (bodice and sleeves). The pattern instructions have great descriptions and photos for each step, making this one of the easiest things I've sewn in quite some time. I chose to go with a size 4T, and I think the end result is a perfect fit!
I used some lightweight pink polka dot Swiss dot cotton fabric that I had on hand from Hancock Fabrics. Since this top has shirring across the bodice and on the sleeves, I knew the lightweight fabric would work well.
I just happened to have some pink serger thread that matched the fabric perfectly! I think that just adds to the cuteness!
In roughly an hour, my daughter had this fun, cool to wear summer top already on and running around in it. She was even agreeable to let me take a few quick photos of her wearing it. See the Legos? Apparently she made herself a trophy. I told her it was for being the cutest girl on the block!
The Britney Bubble Top is perfect for summer weather and playtime, so I know there will be a few more of these whipped up for Ella's summer wardrobe. In fact, there may already be a second one!
If you like Create Kids Couture, don't forget to check out their blog on Friday to see what the latest half-off pattern will be--although their patterns are a great deal any day of the week!
Have fun sewing!
