The top has a fun neckline of overlapping shoulders and lots of opportunities for color blocking. It also is available for purchase in adult and child sizes. (separate pattern for each...but there is an option to bundle for a discount)
Name of the pattern: Extraordinary Girl
Sizes available: The children's pattern comes in sizes 12 months to 14 years. The woman's pattern is available up to XXL. You can buy them separately or you can bundle the 2 for a discounted price.
Special materials required: This pattern requires knit fabrics with at least a 40% stretch but is not recommended for knits with more than 70% stretch. The pattern instructions tell you how to test the stretch of your fabric.
Skill level required: Beginner! If you are looking to try sewing knits for the first time, this is a great pattern for you because it is super simple and you do not have to do a circular ribbing at the neck.
How you came to choose the pattern: We picked this pattern because of the blog tour, but I am so glad we got invited. I love Filles a Maman patterns as they are simple and right on trend.
We each made slight modifications to the pattern to fit our girlss style.
For Sophia's I added a lace overlay, which was basically cutting out and sewing 2 of the top insert pieces together.
Good: The good about the pattern is that it is so easy and it is stylish for a girl or woman. I loved wearing mine and we did not feel too matchy-matchy as we went about our day's activities. (We went to the local nature center and learned about the science of snowflakes.) The boat neck and the high/low hem also makes it a great variation to the standard T-shirt.
Bad: With the overlap shoulder, Abi's cami straps did show. I did not have that problem, so it may be just the way her skinny shoulders are built.
