The top is really cute as is your model! She sure looks like she's having fun! I love it when the kids will pick out fabric-then I'm sure they'll wear the item.

Thank you all, although I'm not sure which you like more, the top or the child, lol. She is a hoot, though.

She has a birthday party to go to on Saturday, and the birthday girl's mom always sews something for my dd's birthdays, so we were thinking about what to make for the birthday girl (I know, we should have started a week ago). This little girl loves to wear cowGIRL boots, so we were thinking of perhaps a cowGIRL vest. We had a few minutes before bedtime tonight, so we pulled all of our sewing for/by kids books, and found a hopefully easy vest and instructions in one of the books. Tomorrow is booked solid until 9pm, but I think on Friday I'll visit the fabric store while dd is at school, and do some of the preliminary work.

Absolutely adorable! The comment about sewing for birhtday reminded me I wanted to sew up something for a friend's daughter's birthday..... I should go do that, realistically I think it'll get to her late.

Theresa I love it! I always liked making peasant tops for my girls to wear in the summer. I also had a pattern for a raglan sleeve dress that they seemed to have a lot of!

Barb, excuse my ignorance, but is a raglan sleeve like a sweatshirt - where you don't ease the sleeve, but it fits the opening? Do you possibly have a picture of something with raglan sleeves?

raglan sleeves are kind of triangle shaped at the top. Like a peasent top. You don't actually have a shoulder seam. The ones I made were T-shirt knit with elastic at the waist. They also had knit binding at the neck.The fit for a long time because you could make them long & then blouse them at the waist as much or little as you needed. I also opened the casing once & added more elastic at the waist as they grew there but I had 3 girls close enough in age that I would just pass them down. I will try to find a pattern

This is the closest I can find

After I get easter sewing done I will see if I can find my pattern. I hope I didn't get rid of it on one of my perge days!
