I haven’t announced anywhere BIG or MAIN or EVERYWHERE. But I’ve told all my friends I see IRL, and in groups I frequent. This is another not-major announcement, but it has to do a little with this post, so I’m sharing that I’m pregnant! It has to do with this post, because when I saw this top come up for testing, I was excited to see it might work for a growing belly! I was not sewing much when I was pregnant last time, 4 years ago!! Actually, I was sewing, but mostly baby leggings, and blankets, and fun little kid stuff. I had never made anything for myself from a pattern. I winged it. And not much worked out. Lol!

This is the Boho Babydoll from Patterns for Pirates. It includes high-low top, curved hem top, dress, and maxi lengths, and racerback sleeveless, short, 3/4, 3/4 with ruffles, and long sleeves. There are 2 necklines, crew, and scoop.

It is available in women’s and girls sizes!! I made both. Mine is a curved hem top out of rayon spandex from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. The fabric type is really prone to growing, and it did. The drape and flow is so excellent, though! This is top length, but it turned into more of a tunic. I would not add length for my height, next time, if I’m using rayon spandex. However, I don’t mind it at all, it will keep my belly covered longer 🙂 My neckline is the crew style.

The girls version I made from a cotton jersey from Girl Charlee. I LOVE, super love this so much! This dress has been worn tons already, and even been worn to bed. So comfy, she says. I like this style too, of a t-shirt dress, with a little extra interest from the high-low bodice, and curved hem. The girls version has all the same options as the women’s, except, there’s only one neckline height. I can see this working so well for all seasons, a long sleeve top for the winter, or a tank dress or maxi for the summer!

Patricia’s Boho High Low Top+Dress

DSC_4023-2 wm

This new pattern from Simple Life Pattern Company is practically everything. This is Patricia’s Boho top, and it is such a beautiful, perfect top for summer! This works best with light weight, draped woven fabrics. I used a gauze from my stash. Actually, I have no clue what it really was, I picked up the piece at a church garage sale several years ago for a quarter, and it was finished on all 4 edges, but it was much to big to be a blanket. Anyway, it was perfect for this top, and it will be so easy to wear even when it gets warm because it will breathe!

You can make this sleeveless, or with short sleeves, long sleeves, or bell sleeves. There is an option for top or dress length, and on both of those you can make the high-low hem dramatic or more subtle. This is the top with the dramatic high-low, which I love so much!

There are no closures, the back has a nice scoop, so it goes on easily, and that means it’s also quick to sew!

Patricia’s is on sale for $7.50 right now, no code needed. ❤ Here are the rest of our photos of this version!
