Dahlia Top


The DAHLIA top will be one of your favorites to sew. Your little girl will LOVE wearing this top. She can twirl around, play AND sleep in it. It’s a quick sew with only a few pattern pieces to assemble. She doesn’t need to know how easy it was to sew, she just knows it’s comfy and she can concentrate on more important things, like having fun. And with all the many sizes it comes in, you’ll be ready for any growth spurts that are bound to happen. Add this pattern to your library now. You’ll be happy you didn’t wait.

The DAHLIA top is a fun beginner knit top with half sleeves built in, and a self-ribbed neckline. The arm and hip bands can be made in a contrasting fabric for more whimsy. The drop sleeves and roomy fit mean that it’s super comfortable! Flower can be removable if your tween wants to change up her look. Get ready to make a closet full of them!

    Made the Dahlia top and absolutely love it. My little 16 month old wears it with pride. I’m getting ready to sew a lot more of these!

    Love this pattern! Produces a stylish, comfy top any little girl would love to wear. Even if you are afraid of knits (like I was!) this top will be a dream to sew and help break you out of your comfort zone. I have made two, one out of a ribbed knit and another from jersey and had great results both times. This top could also be very easily customized after you feel comfortable sewing it up. So worth having in your sewing rotation.

    This is the sweetest and quick knit shirt you will ever need. I highly recommend you get the pattern and be ready to sew a bunch! It takes about 30 minutes to meme. ENJOY

    I absolutely love this top – its quick to sew and with the cuffs and neck binding, there is no need to fuss with hemming. The fit is spot on and the flower embellishment gives it that awesome bit of originality. This is definitely worth it.

    We LOVE this pattern, my daughter didn’t want to take it off!!! The fit is so great and the pattern was easy to understand. This is a perfect project for those who want to start sewing with knit!!!! I can’t wait to make more!

    If you want an easy top for your daughter, but that’s also fashionable and easy to wear, then this is the one! It took me only about an hour to sew, my daughter wouldn’t take it off, and hubby made me compliments! Big score!! I can’t wait to sew a few more of these, in different prints. My daughter already ordered another one with longer sleeves (it’s still a bit cold here), so that she can wear it to school and be proud of the top mummy made for her 😉 Thanks, Rachel!
