Double Bow Back Tops


Again, as I did for my own sparkly bow back top around Christmas, I used Lekala Sewing Pattern Company  pattern # 4284.


I input the measurements of the girls I made them for, and then printed the patterns out and taped them together. I always opt for the seam-allowance, which is smaller than 5/8 in, because it works great for the serger and saves on fabric. You can get the pattern without seam-allowence, if you prefer to add your own. I’m busy editing the hundreds of patterns that Lekala Sewing Pattern Company offers, so I’m happy to say that an ever-increasing number of patterns are more user friendly.

IMG_7695This is one pattern, that I never tire of sewing up. It’s fun to try it in different colors and patterns. I’ve even made it out of extra large men’s tee-shirts, done some stash busting with it,  experimented with shibori dying, and most recently, a cute teal and white striped bow back top for my IMG_7587youngest daughter, Leah.

  8. I love all your versions. I was looking at the pattern site – many choices and for so little money. “Edited by native speaker”, is that you?
