The Beverly Belle and the Bundle Up Sale

Hello there! Today I am so excited to showcase one of the patterns in the Pattern Revolution Bundle Up  pattern bundle; the Beverly Belle.  This is a pattern from Izzy & Ivy that was a paper pattern in a previous life and is being re-released as a PDF pattern (yay!). 

This top is super twirly and my little one was leaping and dancing as soon as she put it on.  

This lovely little top pattern has a size range of 12 months to 14.  That is a crazy big range, and great for me since I have kiddos in both toddler and big girl sizes.  When her big sis saw the top, she said "she's lucky". As usual, I should have made a second one :)

There is one pattern piece to assemble and cut, with measurements given for the straps and bodice lining piece.  I can totally get behind only taping together one piece!

The bottom edge of the top is finished with bias tape.  I love that.  It gives the bottom edge a lot of body and makes the ripple shaped edge really hold its shape.  The pattern even shows the proper way to connect the edges together when you're applying the bias around the edge.  It turns out, you aren't supposed to just tuck one edge inside the other and go with it, like I *might* have done in the past...

So, funny story about the fabric in this dress.  I was shopping at my local Target store about a week ago and happened upon a brand new rack of fabric that had appeared in the little sewing area of my store.  You know I had to buy some, and this top is what I made with it! Life, as we know it, will never be the same now that Target has fabric; but I digress...

We ended up going to a local Japanese garden and a little local zoo the day she wore her dress.  It was super wearable, she ran and played all day in it.  

I paired the top with the Greenstyle Lucy Leggings that I cut as capris.  They were the perfect coordinate to make a playful little outfit.  

This is just one of the patterns available in the Bundle Up deal.  There are 11 patterns that you can mix and match, plus you save more as you buy more (as low as $4.00 each!). Head over and build your bundle! 

Just a few more pictures because I can't resist how cute this is!!!
