My daughter is growing so fast! I realized the other day that she’s grown out of most of her plain, every day tops. I love having a pattern that has lots of options for different finishes. Then I know that if she wants something just a little different, then it’s easy to use the same pattern to make something a little different. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in this thinking. The Camas knit top and tunic has lots of different finishing options. It can be a great plain top, or add some ruching to the sleeves or hem to give it a cute finish. There’s also the option of a thumbhole cuff. I made the plain top with a curved hem. There’s a neckline facing and although it takes a little longer than a neckband, I love this finished look. I feel like a binding or a facing always gives a cute, and more polished look to tops.
I also just love this Eggplant color on her. Her red hair can really go great with some fun colors. Anything in the blue or green shades tend to do wonders, and I just love it! This was a cotton lycra that I grabbed at Simply by Ti fabrics. It’s Ti’s Eggplant cotton lycra, and like I said in my post yesterday, I also grabbed this in her $5/yard cotton lycra sale she had a bit ago.
This cute Camas top and tunic pattern can be short, 3/4, or long sleeved. It can have a curved hem, or a straight hem. It can have a banded hem too with the ruching in the sides. Grab this cute top pattern today!
