New Sewing Pattern Reversible Pleated Dress Top!



The Reversible Pleated Dress Top sewing pattern is not quite ready yet but here is one of the tester photos! Ok!! Do you love this! Or could it be that this little girl would make any outfit look cute!! Her little hands look just like the babydoll hands you see on those life size babydolls! so adorable! Her sweet Mom paired this one up with a coordinating pair of Boutique Bottoms too! This pattern should be ready in the next two weeks. It would have been earlier but after the first round of testing I had to go back and change the placement of straps and redraw the top of the bodice. Because I had to redraw the pattern, I will now have to redraw the graphics on the directions which takes time so that is the reason for 14 days! Thanks again to all the testers who did this the first go-round and for you who are doing it the second g0-round!!


I also was able to sew me another dress top for myself !!!!! Hopefully Tommy can take some pictures of me in it today! I am still going to keep the back a secret as long as I can. Maybe I can draw up some different size patterns and get it ready to send out and get some tested on some of you. Leave me a comment if you would like to test it! I will pick the first 10-15 to be fair to you. And if you are a seasoned sewer and are comfortable sewing with silk or any lightweight fabric, I would love this pattern tested with some of those fabrics to make a more date night dress top!!

She is a little doll!!!!

The top you made is fabulous!!! It looks so hip and stylish. If you think it would look good with a shirt underneath (I usually only wear shirts with sleeves), I'd love to try it out for you! It looks like it would be super cute and maybe hide my baby belly (those few too many pounds I have left) a little too.

Let me know if I can help you--and I totally understand if you just want to use the top just like it is!

Hi Aimee,
I love the women's shirt you made. So cute and hip!! It looks great with blue jeans. It would be so fun to make matching mommy/daughter outfits. I would love to test it if you are in need of more testers.

Thanks!

I love the women's top Aimee!

Thank you so much for the sweet comments about my little girl. She is definitely a gift from God and I cherish her!

I would love to test the women's top if you still need testers.

Aimee'
I love the ladie's top and would love to test it.

P.S. Almost finished with the second go-round on the reversible pleated. Need to top-stitch and am using bright colors so I have to load my coordinating thread.

Will send comments asap!

I just found your site! I am sooo loving it! I would love to test your top I really want to make mommy and 2 daughters matching tops for my sister in law. She has a 4yr old and a 3 month old (both girls)!! I am happy to test anything! The girls are too far apart to find things in the store to match...so I plan to get them outfits at least 2 x a year! (At least)!! The woman's top, I'd also love to make for myself! It's super cute!!
