I am excited today to release my second pattern: The Little Betty top!!  I have had seventeen wonderful testers working behind the scenes over the past couple of weeks to help me improve my pattern.  You can read more about my pattern and view more photos here.
The Little Betty top is a 1970's inspired knit design that has three views: Long sleeved, short sleeved and sleeveless.  It features wide banding and a gathered frill over the bodice.  It closes with a button and loop closure at the centre back.  
The 25 page PDF file is priced at $8 AUD and includes:
  • Sized from 6mo to 8 years
  • Annotated and clear photographs for each step
  • Seam allowances included
  • All measurements in imperial and metric
  • Measurement charts
  • Fabric requirements and recommendations
  • Tips for sewing with knits
  • Colour coded easy to assemble pattern piece

Many of the ladies who kindly tested my pattern also have blogs.  I have also recruited a couple more lovely ladies to help me on my Little Betty pattern tour.  The calendar is below:

I can't wait to see all their lovely creations, starting next week!
