01 May Sugar Pop Top by Sew Caroline
This top features a Peter Pan collar (what’s not to love?), cap or flutter sleeves, and a hi-lo hem.
For my top, I used Leah Duncan’s Summer Grove in Day fabric for the bodice and her Sprinkled in Noon for my collar and cap sleeves. If you haven’t already, check out the rest of her Meadow fabric line; It’s lovely. The Sugar Pop Top (kind of fun to say, right?) came together very quickly. The pattern is well written and Caroline has included a lot of photos to help you through the process.
The only tricky part was my own doing. I tried to use metallic store-bought single fold bias tape to finish the neckline and armholes and I about lost my mind. It’s beautiful in the package but a beast to work with. It frayed throughout the entire process and my top will likely have a gold thread baby very soon. So other than that self-imposed sewing nightmare, I had a very enjoyable time sewing up this top.
I love the way it turned out and I can’t wait to make more of them, especially one with flutter sleeves. This top can be dressed up or down depending on what you pair it with and I think it would look great using different substrates. Thank you Caroline for letting me test this great pattern!
