This new twist top is the awesomest!! I love the Tara and Mama Tara patterns from Made for Mermaids. This is a relaxed fit tee, with a FUN twist! The side (either one, you choose) will have a twist, and it is so fun to play with, with stripe prints, or solids.
I love that it has a relaxed fit. Not too baggy, but super comfortable. The sleeve options are fun too! There is a twist short sleeve included in the pattern, and you can check out the Made for Mermaids blog to find hacks on how to make your other sleeve lengths have that fun split and twist too 🙂 The other sleeve lengths include short, 3/4, or long.
The best part about this is how quick it is to sew. You can make this a fun summer top, with a light rayon spandex, and short twist sleeves, or a perfectly cozy winter sweater, using french terry, and adding cuffs to the sleeves and bottom hem (hack on the Made for Mermaids blog as well). Or just leave your french terry version raw at all the edges!
Get this while it’s on sale, and you can have new tops for you and the little ones you sew for by this weekend!
I made mine out of a solid black rayon spandex. I knew I would get the most use out of a solid color, since that’s my comfort zone, and I love that the side twist detail makes it more exciting than a plain tee.
My daughter’s is also rayon spandex, and she has the fun sleeve option on hers. Both of my fabrics came from a de-stash page, so I don’t know the original sources.
Don’t miss the best prices, and the Mama and me bundle for even more savings.
Also, look at how much my girls love pictures. Hahahahahahaha! And my four year old made his debut as my photographer for these mommy and me pictures ❤ The purple version in these has the cuff hacks that will be on the M4M blog. You can find details, and more photos there.
