The Issie Top Tour

Almost four years ago I participated in The Little Betty Top tour hosted by the pattern's designer Sew Pony.

Betty has gone through some changes and is now called Issie - but she's still the same great easy fitting strech top but now with even more options to choose from.

She can be made with or without ruffles, with or without ribbing or even with a little tie collar - and comes with instructions for a dress length as well.

We adored her back then and love her even more now.

I made Wilma a size 12 cropped sweatshirt version in french terry from The Sweet Mercerie. I kept the ruffles but instead of a waistband I lengthened the bodice a bit (more at the back) and made tiny side seam splits. I also omitted the neckband and instead of folding the right side towards the wrong side of the fabric I did it the other way around and topstitched. I also sewed the ruffles on top of the bodice with two rows of stitches and left all the edges raw. I like this edgy touch paired with the girly ruffles. The sleeves. I added width and length to the bottom and turned them into balloon/bishop style sleeves. 2017 - year of the sleeve.

  • Issie is available in English, French and Dutch and comes in sizes 1-12 years (all sizes included in the pattern)
  • You can get the pattern with a 10% discount throughout the tour with this code: ISSIERELEASE10
