The Perfect Valentine´s Day Top
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, many of you are looking for a quick Valentine's themed sew. I found the perfect quick sew for my oldest daughter in the Perfect Ten top with a small heart shaped accent pocket!
This particular top is perfect for my finicky 8 year old who really is only interested in wearing something comfortable that meets her definition of stylish. The Perfect Ten also pairs well with the Cambridge Skinnies as shown here!
Here are a few of the many options available for the Perfect Ten top!
- Hem: basic hem or hem band
- Neckline Embellishment: Peter Pan Collar or Ruffled Neckline
- Sleeve Lengths: sleeveless, short, long or 3/4 length
- Sleeve Embellishment: Button Tab, Bubble Sleeve, Double Ruffle or Ruched Hem
- Other Embellishments: Heart Pocket, Bodice Bow, Ruffled Shoulder or Button Placket with Ruffle
Not only are there loads of options available to make the Perfect Ten perfectly suited to whatever style you choose, there are a few other pattern features that should be mentioned.
Sizes: Available in size 12m-14
Best Materials: Cotton Lycra, Brushed Polyester, Jersey Knit, Woven cotton (for some options)
The Perfect Ten top sews up super quickly. We used the Heart Pocket embellishment to give this top a festive feel for Valentine's Day. Woven cotton was used for the pocket in a color that coordinated with the red floral brushed polyester used for the top.
The pocket was Perfect finishing touch for our Valentine's themed Perfect Ten! I look forward to seeing many of you sewing up a festive Perfect Ten for the upcoming holiday!
