Elisa is here!


Elisa is finally here! This pattern is awesome! Am I the only person that uses that word these days? Anyway, back to the top. Everyone loves this top and my daughter loves wearing it, that’s the important part here. We all love making garments our kids will actually want to wear, am I right?


Designer: Filles A Maman
Pattern: Elisa
Pattern sizing: 12m to 14y So if your like me and have a 3 year old and a 13 year old~ your covered!
Other pattern details: This top can be made in knit or woven, bonus!
Was the pattern easy to follow: Oh my gosh, YES.
What did I like/dislike about the pattern: It was such a quick sew. Seriously, from printing to finish, 30 minutes max.
Fabrics used: I used knit for the first and woven for the second.
This was actually one of my husbands white undershirts! That’s right, I’ve been dabbling in up-cycles lately. I dip-dyed for the first time here and loved it! It was so easy. The key, I found, was to keep moving the fabric. That way you don’t get any hard lines.
This one was made with very light weight woven fabrics that had a good drape.
Pattern alterations/Design changes: None. Something you could do differently is make your straps out of the fabric used for the top.
I very highly recommend this top! Here are some more photos for your viewing pleasure:
I just love that last photo shoot location. Isn’t it super cool?’
This birdie chair is her favorite photo shoot location!
I adore her smile in this next picture. It’s a little challenging to get her to smile like this for the camera.
Black and white or color?
