This new pattern from Made for Mermaids has instantly jumped into the top of my favorite patterns ever list. I love the princess seams, the low back, and probably the gathered circle skirt the most!! My big girl has decided she will wear this too, which makes it even better! Otherwise, I was about to have to find some cute little babies to sew some for, because I just love it so much!
This was a joy to sew. Every now and then, there’s a pattern that just comes together so easily, and you know the outcome will be amazing, and it’s just a joy to sew! This is one of them!
I have only made the top version, with sleeves, for testing purposes, but I’m eager to make the full twirly skirt in dress length next!
Sutton has a top or dress length, elbow sleeves with a tie, or sleeveless options, and a button front bodice, with a placket. There are princess seams in the bodice, which is a great place to play with print or color blocking, or to add trims!
This top is cute paired with several bottoms from Made for Mermaids as well, including Evie, Lucy, or Olivia! The Samantha Skirt is a great layering piece with the dress version, and it’s also on sale for $5 through Sunday!
The white version is the final version of the pattern. The changes that were made to the blue version include, top length shortened, width added to the sleeves, and the waist brought in.
I know this one will be a smash hit!
All fabrics and trims were vintage, or second hand from estate sales or friends.
