So much prettier than a T shirt but just as simple and easy to sew. You can add length to the pattern to make it into a light and breezy little dress - just great for the holidays. NEW! BLOG POST SHOWING HOW TO MAKE A DRESS FROM THE TILLY TOP PATTERN. See link top of next column. PDF SEWING PATTERN: the pattern can be printed on a desk top printer using 8.5"x 11" / A4 size paper. The pattern file includes a very detailed sewing tutorial with step by step photos. The computer made digital pattern comes as a color coded, full size range nest with seam allowances included. Instructions for printing and assembling the pattern are included. All seam allowances and cutting instructions are marked on the pattern pieces. When you get the pattern it's best to use the sewing tutorial on your computer so you can zoom the photos. Only print out the pattern pages. Be sure to read the printing instructions first, they are on the Test Square page. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Experience: Tilly is very easy to make you need only basic sewing skill with a little extra care to sew on the bias binding. You can make the top without bias binding and simply do a 1cm/3/8" hem on the sleeves and body. Follow the sewing tutorial closely and you will get a perfect finish. If you do not have a serger /overlocker, use the zigzag stitch on your machine to finish the edges of the seams. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Sizes: Tilly comes in sizes to fit girls 1 to 10 years --- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10. Always check the size chart for your child's correct size; height and chest measurements are the best guide. A size chart in Centimeters and inches is included in the pattern file.
