I’ve been cleaning out my fabric stash of late, selling what I’m done with since my craft supply closet is badly overflowing (yikes)! Of course, in the process of cleaning out, you find things you forgot you had. One of my exciting finds was a stash from Sandi Henderson’s 2009 Meadowsweet collection. I felt like I had struck GOLD! :)

I set it aside figuring I could figure out something to do with it, since I really liked it when I bought it, then continued sorting through my fabric stash. That was 3 weeks ago.

So, then I found out the other day, that it was going to be in the 90s in Boston this week – which is quite warm for this area of the US. I hadn’t quite gotten around to summer clothes shopping yet for my daughter, so I figured why not make something at least since we only have 1 pair of shorts. So I started poking through my pattern stash, when I found a great little halter top pattern I got last spring from Romeo & Mae last spring! I mostly had Fat Quarters and small scraps of the Meadowsweet collection so I thought I’d give it a try:

 

It took me under 2 hours  (start to finish) to make this cute little top!  I made the 2T knowing it would be big on Sophie so we can get 2 summers of use out of it!

Here’s how it came out! (I couldn’t pick just one photo, sorry!)

Sophie was more then willing to give you an inside view!
I used french stitching in the seams & bias tape between the top & bottom. :)

Close up! I love the ruffle!

It’s perfect to wear with just a diaper cover for toddlers, a pair of shorts, leggings or jeans!

Love the pattern?
It’s $7.50 from Romeo & Mae.
