If you’re looking to create a stylish and comfortable top for a young girl, Shkatulka-Sew has a fantastic resource for you. Their free pattern for a girl’s top is available in sizes 86, 98, which correspond to children’s ages of about 1.5 to 2 years, 2 to 3 years, and 3 to 4 years respectively. To receive these sizes, simply add them to your cart on the website, and after placing your order, they will be available in your personal account for free. This top features a moderate volume and straight silhouette, making it a versatile addition to any young girl’s wardrobe.

The front of the top is designed with a yoke and a lower part gathered along the yoke seam, giving it a charming and detailed look. It also includes shaped patch pockets at the waistline, adding both functionality and style. The back of the top is solid, maintaining a clean and simple appearance. The neckline has a “square” shape, and the fastener is located at the front, consisting of set-in strips with sewn loops and buttons. The sleeves are set-in, short, and gathered at the edges, contributing to the overall cute and playful design. The length of the top reaches the hip line, ensuring it pairs well with various bottoms.

To sew this blouse, it is recommended to use knitted fabrics of low surface density that are tactilely soft, thin, flexible, and well draped. Fabrics with high hygienic and hygroscopic properties, such as stockinette stitch or interlock, are ideal. Shkatulka-Sew also provides a video tutorial to guide you through the process, making it accessible for sewers of all levels. This project is not only a fun way to enhance your sewing skills but also results in a beautiful, custom-made garment that any girl will love to wear. Happy sewing!
