Sugar Pop Top by Sew Caroline

Sugar Pop Top by Sew Caroline

Sew Caroline just came out with a new pattern called the Sugar Pop Top.  How cute is that name?  I was picked to be a pattern tester before it was released and I was so excited to try it out.

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. NEF_7145The 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. NEF_7158
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.NEF_7172
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. NEF_7160Thank you Caroline for letting me test this great pattern!

You can pick up your own Sugar Pop top here.

    Adorable! I made mine out of the same fabric, but with a navy collar. I LOVE the contrast print though and will keep that in mind for my next one. I also had originally intended to use the gold bias tape, but it was such a beast to work with that I ripped it out and used regular bias tape. Great job!

      Kim, Thanks for your message. I LOVED your navy collar! It really made the print pop and it looked so cute on you. I also loved that we picked the same fabric! It’s one of my favorites.
      Very smart to rip the bias tape out. I should have done that. It was painful!
