Say hello to Elisa! The newest release from Filles à Maman, and Mel was sweet enough to let me test this time around! I really love this pattern. It's unique, feminine, and simple - the whole thing takes hardly any time at all to put together, maybe half an hour from start to finish. The straps are the easiest part - just grab a yard of your favorite ribbon! (The pattern calls for grosgrain, it's very easy to tie in a bow and stays in place well.)
I wish this were a more picture-heavy post, but this one really does not like to model anymore. Since she figured out walking, all she wants to do is GO, and she certainly doesn't care if Mom needs a photograph!
Details about the pattern:
Best of all, it's on sale right now in Mel's Craftsy store for only $6! Hurry and pick it up now, it's an ideal top for the hot summer days (and there are plenty of those left!)
Case in point: our Elisa made a perfect beach top. We layered on the sunscreen and the light, breezy design kept her cool and comfortable all afternoon, playing in the sand and surf!
