Raspberry top!

Tops and vests are actually the most useful things to sew. They make a little bit too summery patterns suitable for colder weather. Our eldest really is a dress/skirt kind of girl, especially maxi dresses. The dresses I have sewed lately are mostly sleeveless or have short sleeves, and the new Raspberry cover-up/top from Sofiona Designs is great to wear over a dress or top.
I do not often sew with woven fabrics, but I do have a stash of woven fabrics. With my woven fabrics I never know what pattern to use. The new Raspberry is great for your flowy woven fabrics.

The Raspberry is a cover-up/ top that comes in 3 different lengths. I made the shortest length, shirt length, there is also knee length and full length. You can either do short sleeves or sleeveless. Additionally you can add a ruffle to the sleeves and bottom of the top, and do one or two ties. The idea is that you can wear it over a swimsuit as a cover-up, not necessarily a very loose fitted top, but a nicely shaped type of top.


There is a 25% discount until June 21 Midnight CST. It is not a very quick pattern, but a very nicely finished garment (also the inside looks very professional).

Fabric: I bought the fabric in Boston a couple years ago, no idea what it is.
Sizing: 2-16Y
Options: 3 lengths, shorts sleeves or sleeveless, optional ruffle to sleeves and hem, one or two ties.
Difficulty: Intermediate
Sewing time: 4 hours
