I love cute + practical so when I saw the line drawing of this pattern it was love at first sight.

Our new summer staple.
This pattern has so many things going for it:
- Knit--fast and comfy
- Flutter sleeves--I'm such a sucker for these, girly and fun
- Dress option--make it a whole outfit!
- High/low hem option--we love our options
- Lettuce hem/regular hem--change it up
- Pockets--every kid's favorite
- Huge size range--newborn to 12
Then add in the super unique construction method (the flutter is built-in) and this is the fastest sew ever.
This is the kind of summer outfit we live in.
But the sleeve is so sweet that I'm going to sew up a bunch to go under jumpers and pinnies.
I added a pair of Air Balloon shorts from Puperita in hot pink to finish this outfit, but this top would look awesome with anything: jeans, shorts, leggings, tights, layered. You name it. It's a classic.
I also whipped one out in plain pink (everything pink around here!) but I didn't do photos of that one. Yet.
It's still so cute!
This was a fun test to sew up.
Jennuine Design is a reputable, well-drafted and professional company. This was my first experience with their patterns, but not my last!
