Little Betty Top Blog Tour


 Hello to all of you who are here from sewpony! Thanks for stopping by to check out my version of The Little Betty Top for the blog tour. A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of pattern testing this sweet little top for the very talented Suz and now I get to continue the fun on the blog tour! It is a super cute top and I love how it has a bit of an 80s vibe to it. It definitely reminds me of a top I wore when I was Erin's age.

The pattern runs from size six months up to eight years and has three different sleeve options. My favorite detail is the sweet ruffles that run down the upper part of the bodice.


The ruffles extend to the back of the bodice where there is a cute button closure at the neckline.

This top was so fun to make and Suz's instructions were very easy to follow. She includes lots of great pictures along with each step to help guide you with your sewing.

The Details:
The pattern: The Little Betty Top by sewpony Vintage size 6

The fabric: Both from The Doodles collection at Joann Fabric. The turquoise has glitter in it that you can't see in the pictures.
Trims/Notions: fabric covered button

The turquoise fabric that I used for the cuffs and bottom band are regular interlock jersey not rib knit like the pattern suggests. I used rib knit on my test version and loved how it came out but wanted to try regular jersey for this version. Plus, there was not much of an option in the rib knit department at Joann and I wanted something that coordinated with the colors in the butterfly fabric.

Learn more about the Little Betty top over at sewpony. To purchase the pattern head on over to sewpony Vintage. Use the code BETTYTOUR1 during the course of the tour to purchase the pattern for $7AUD.

The tour continues through the 21st so make sure you check in at sewpony to see the rest of the adorable Little Betty tops!

Thanks for stopping by!
