I really had fun trying to jump out of my comfort zone and make my own pattern. You see, always always when I would sew with my mom we would use patterns. I had no idea that people made up their own patterns at all. So for me, sewing without a pattern seems kind of like winging it. But using your kids' existing clothing to make patterns is pretty fun. And I think this top was pretty successful.
I just love the cute little pockets. And the voile is so soft and lightweight, it'll make a really great summer shirt - perfect for checking out all the cool bugs outside.
