When I blog, I post multiple entries in an evening. 😀
I was so lucky to get the chance to test the Monarch Top by LLC. This is a stunning top is classic in its beauty. It features a lovely ruffle collar, and stunning button placket.
If you just extend the skirt, you can easily turn this top into a dress. (Edited to add that the pattern includes the skirt dimensions for a dress) After I make one of these tops for B, I’ll be making dresses for both girls too. Check out the stunning button placket!
Here’s a view of the back of the top as well.
The baby blue fabric is from Joann’s. It’s similar to a swiss dot. Even better, I found it as a remnant. The collar is a floral by Lucien.
C is a huge fan of the top as well. She twirls around it in and claims to be a princess.
The neck line is finished with bias tape and the skirt is installed by sandwiching it between the bodice and the bodice lining. The skirt is a french seam. If you hand stitch the neck line and the button placket like I did, there are no raw edges! Making the top a comfy pattern to hop in…
To explore in..
To collect rocks in . . .
AND to look fabulous in!
I think this photo is probably my favorite of the set!
