Lizzie’s ‘Ebalent’ Top

28 Jun

It’s been a busy few days for me and my sewing machine.  This is the first output of the week; Lizzie’s ‘Ebalent’ Top.  A top for my niece who at two years old hasn’t yet mastered saying ‘elephant’ but ‘ebalent’ is far cuter so we’ll definitely let her off.  I am still madly in love with this material.  I’ve got meters left so will be running off more of these off over the next few days and then launching my Etsy shop.  Exciting times – details to follow.

I drafted the pattern for this top myself and will be tweaking the design.  I keep thinking a Peter Pan collar would look adorable.


The pleats are a definite winner.  Everything I make at the moment seems to be pleated.

This version is buttoned at the back which despite my hatred of sewing buttonholes does look pretty.

The results were worth the pain!


There are so many possibilities for variations on Lizzie’s Ebalent Top I could be very, very busy.
