This sweet top is an upcycle from an old maternity dress. This girl wears it better! =)
The pattern is the newly re-released Ella by Made for Mermaids. The binding is an interlock with some lace tucked inside.
The back bow is a quilting cotton. The pattern calls for knit, but I thought that a woven would look sharper tied. No modifications to the length of the ties and it has worked well for us.
This is the low back version. There is a higher back if more modesty is desired.
I’m on the lookout for a fun blue patterned long-sleeved shirt to layer with this once cooler weather heads our way.
