SB Wrap Dress Pattern: A Valentine's Day Blouse

When SB reader Lynette Marxuach posted a picture on our Facebook page of this blouse she made for her daughter as a Valentine's Day school outfit, I just had to share it on our blog. Stitched up in a cotton print fabric from the Michael Miller Andalucia Collection by Patty Young, the sleeveless top is from our Sew Beautiful Collection Girls' Wrap pattern

Lynette tells us, "I live in Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico (a suburb of San Juan). I've been sewing for over 30 years but it wasn't till my daughter was born in 1999 that I began sewing for babies/toddlers/children/tweens. I learned to smock when she was born and ten years later it still is my favorite thing to do after she goes to sleep. I recently opened a fan page in Facebook - El ropero de Daniela (Daniela's Closet) where I display my creations and once in a while sell a piece. I've been reading/collecting Sew Beautiful Magazine for nearly all these years really enjoying the heirloom sewing tips and smocking plates."

  1. That is a perfect top for an older girl. I will have to keep that in mind. I made some things from SB years ago - the Vintage Baby Bubbles, and I also used the top and made little dresses. I don't have any pics that I know of. I wish I did. They were precious.

  2. Lynette, I love the top and would wear that style myself. You did a beautiful job on the binding and the coordination of the two fabrics.

  3. Love this top! I've had this pattern for awhile and this just inspires me to want to use it now!
