The time has come! It is time for the petal sleeve top tutorial! I am asked all the time where did I buy the top the Little Miss wore in our family pictures. Well I didn’t buy it, I made it and it was super easy to make. So today I will share how. This was really just an alteration from my favorite basic pattern. (which I will share later) This free flowing top has a V cut back and awesome flair in the petal sleeves. Today’s tutorial has added pockets to the top but you can easily skip that if you don’t want them, I will walk you through both ways. The directions may seem a bit long but I made my first one in about 2 hours and now I can crank one out in about an hour. It is that easy.
- Fabric (the amount will vary depending on the size you make it in, for my daughter I use 1/2 a yard or for the blue stripes above I used one of my husbands old dress shirts)
- Contrasting fabric (optional if you want pockets)
- Paper to make the pattern
