Monarch Top by Lil Luxe Collection

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!

The pattern is on sale now for a limited time.  Head over to to pick up your copy before the sale is over.
