Hey everyone, here’s my first Spring Top of 2012 for your enjoyment!



Looks nifty with my red beads. Yay!


Snow White’s body got hacked off in a few places, oops. I like the dwarves with their little tree cottage and their hanging long johns better anyway. And as the saying goes, you snooze, you lose. *snorts*


AND it matches my favorite Anthro sweater!!! Double yay!



A similar pattern to that Hello Pilgrim dress pattern, but a different neckline and no sleeves and the skirt is not as full. And no pockets. Of course without sleeves it had to be lined. So yeah…similar. But different at the same time. I did keep the shirring in the back though:


You can see more pictures of the top in this set from my photostream.

This lovely drapey linen blend is from the Far Far Away III line by Heather Ross. I wish I could convey to you the beautiful depth of this print. It is simply stunning in person. I purchased it last fall at Charmstitch (looks like she’s out of that print but still has a few other Heather Ross prints, but Pink Castle and Banberry Place still have some green snow white left!).

I am also hoarding some of the yellow and pink versions of this design. It is just so so beautiful.

  2. Jen H says:

    Oh my, I love this top! I have some of that fabric and have been looking for a good top pattern. Did u just alter a pattern or make your own pattern?

  3. Nicola says:

    Funny, I just wrote about how I would probably never use Heather Ross fabric for clothes, just toys, but your top might change my mind. What a fun piece for your spring wardrobe!

    I love everything about this shirt! The fabric is sensational! It’s probably a good thing I’m not your sister or you’d probably find it missing from your closet!

  12. Mag. says:

    How cool! I love this top! I hope I can finish mine before the end of your contest!!

  13. kristin says:

    Way to finally join the spring top club, Rae! ;) Great top and LOVE that you cut into your HR for it! So fun.

  14. Nina says:

    Very nice! I have a question about the Spring Top contest: can I enter a top sewn by me, with embroidery on it that was designed by me but stitched by my mother?

    • Rae says:

      Hi Nina!
      Thanks so much for your question. I think that would probably be fine — please make sure to clearly divulge that information on the top so that the judges can see how much was done by you and how much was stitched by your mom.

  15. kirbie says:

    Pattern…yes PLEASE! Love this top. Great job.

  16. LOVE! You look gorgeous in this! So flattering! I want one! I agree..pattern please <3

  17. Suzanne says:

  18. Jovanna says:

  21. ira lee says:

    i love this!!!!! cutest fabric too!

  22. Kim Kruse says:

    That top looks great! I love the way the lines of the garment flatter your body but also show off that darling fabric. And I know what you mean about that Anthro sweater — I have the same one and wear it all the time!

  23. Nathalie says:

    Wow… This looks great, very flattering and comfy. I wish I was able to sew one for myself… Any pattern or tutorial coming ? :)

  24. Truly Myrtle says:

    Looks absolutely fantastic. I am with you on the red beads – LOVE them! You’ve got me all inspired to reinvent my wardrobe…. thanks!

  25. Rebecca says:

    Love it! I wouldn’t have thought of using this fabric for a top, but it looks great!

  26. CitricSugar says:

    Very pretty. Great colour on you, too.

  27. Misty says:

    Wow, what a fabulous top! I totally love the shape and the little details. It looks great in that fabric. Have fun wearing it!

  28. kerry says:

    I love the little peeps of cuteness on this top

  29. Erin says:

    Adorable and the cut is quite flattering on you. Looks great!

  30. Karen says:

    I love this top, Rae, and so did everyone in Atlanta. You simply must release it as a pattern. Please?

  31. Kim says:

    What Karen said. Loved this top in person in Atlanta and online — and would REALLY love a pattern!

  32. Megan says:

    please please please please PLEASE do a tutorial for this top!!

  33. That is super cute! Just the other day I was wondering if I could pull off a dress in the fabric. Seeing this top makes me think I can! Thanks for sharing!!

  34. LOVE it!! And too funny, I JUST made a top out of this same fabric (in gray) this past Saturday!

  35. Holly U says:

    I’m adding my voice to the plea for a pattern. I love that this top is structured and loose, and flattering too. Great job!

  36. MimiB says:

    I have 4 yards of this fabric waiting… I love this shirt…
