Elise was in desperate need for some lightweight long-sleeved tops for Fall. I had bought one of the mystery mix bargain lots at Girl Charlee, and in it were a bunch of 1/4 yard cuts of wide, cute, lightweight knits. I set five aside and got to sewing. I’ve made the Oliver + S Hopscotch dress once before, and found it so gratifying and a very quick sew – the tops were no different. Only five pattern pieces total! It really turned me on to working with knits, and I find that I’m increasingly more drawn to working with them as toddlers are so busy. and messy. and rough on their clothes.
