Swallowtail Top


This is the Swallowtail Top from Lil Luxe Collection. I have to say that I finished this top in a very short time frame. I didn’t time myself, because there’s always interruptions, but I started cutting it out late afternoon, and pulled it off the sewing machine at 7:30pm. WHILE single parenting four kids, feeding them supper, etc…

We raced out to get pictures after that, before the light was gone. Isn’t it a gorgeous top on a gorgeous girl?

The bodice is fully enclosed, the skirt is sewn with French seams, and all hems are turned under twice. It’s as beautiful inside as it is outside. And, it’s still a simple sew!

There are also dress and maxi lengths included in this pattern. I think it’s sweet, and bold at the same time. Perfect. Release price is 30% off, so pick it up now!
