Today is my day on The Perfect Ten blog tour for Little Lizard King and I am so excited to introduce y’all to this awesome pattern! I have sewn quite a few knit tops in my time, and The Perfect Ten is definitely a must have pattern for anyone who sews for girls.
The pattern is well written and easy to follow. Not only is the actual construction SO easy and SO fast, but the pattern is LOADED with options that will give you dozens of different looks. With sizes ranging from 12m through size 14, and sleeve lengths for all seasons; this is sure to be a go to pattern!
My favorite thing about sewing for my kids is that it enables me to create unique pieces to perfectly suit their personal styles. As soon as I spotted this fun rainbow-houndstooth knit, I knew I had to have it for Iyla. I made her this chic-everyday top using the Perfect Ten Pattern; long sleeve version with hem band, peter pan collar and button tab embellishments.
For the blog tour, I decided to make an upcycled top. My Dad is always encouraging me to create by giving me clothes to upcycle, soft wool sweaters to scrap, tops with cool buttons; it’s really sweet. This Lions tee was one of his own, and I knew when he gave it to me that I wanted to turn it into a top for Iyla. Sweet girl LOVES her Papa, LOVES watching football, and LOVES cheering on the Lions!
I created this top by cutting the front and back bodice pieces from the pattern so that the front image stayed intact. I personalized the piece for Iyla by adding silver glitter trim to the neckline and pairing the tee with a fun striped knit for the 3/4 sleeves and crisp white knit for the trim. My girl adores this special top! I love patterns that are quick to sew and allow me to add my own flair. The Perfect Ten is exactly that!
Thank you Cassie for allowing me to participate on the Perfect Ten Top blog tour!
