15 Little Betty Blog tour

Hey you!
I'm poppin' in to share another great pattern just released by the lovely and talented Suz from Sewpony, the Little Betty Top.
Pattern: option A
Fabric: Holli Zollinger for Spoonflower
If vintage and great design is what you're looking for in a little girls' pattern than look no further, folks. Just look at the picture. Need I say anymore?!

Now before we progress, let me digress…
Let me share a wee story with you.
Here is my first Little Betty top(above). I wanna share with you the repercussion of measuring your growing child and not sewing the outfit almost immediately.
GROWTH SPURT.
Now I measured Lala and wasn't able to get started right away due to motherly/wifey obligations and work and the holidays.  So when it came time to sew, I was just so excited to get going that without even thinking of measuring again, I sewed this baby up and tried it on Lala.
TRIED.
Poor girl. She had a little panic attack when I struggled to put it on and when I finally got it on, her buddha belly was accentuated to the Nth degree. I couldn't help but laugh and smother her belly with kisses.
So back to the sewing board to make Little Betty Top #2(and subsequently top #3 shown at the top of post)…
Fabric: Fox Family(main fabric) and Popcorn on Ecru Ribbed Knit(trim) from Girl Charlee
Thank God, I had extra fabric to make the same top. Only this time I used a different ribbed knit for the trim.


The Little Betty Top pattern has three options to choose from: long sleeve (as seen here), short sleeve and sleeveless and if you've been following the blog tour, the possibilities  are endless. How about a Little Betty Dress? Uh-huh, oh yeah… I'm already planning it!
The instructions are very easy to follow with tons of pictures and Suz's has a special going during the blog tour in her shop HERE. Just use the code: BETTYTOUR1 upon cheek out and get $1 off! Honestly, the price of the pattern is already a steal and the little discount is just icing on the cake.
If you haven't already, please make sure to stop over to Shino's blog and see her version of the Little Betty(HERE).
Have a great Monday, folks!
