~~~~~Heat Wave~~~~~

      We are having a wonderfully warm…and now, hot summer!! I have tested a few patterns for The Plucky Butterfly Designs and she has a few awesome tops that are great for summertime. These are both a quick sew, and fun and easy to make.

First up, Rissa Roo’s Knit Pixie Summer Tank Top, which like the title says, is made from knit fabrics. This has a great size range from size 2 through 14 girls.

The pattern calls for knit binding, which I used in the red/white stars stripe, but in the lavender top, I cheated and used foldover elastic, which made the process even easier and faster. Either way, cute results and my daughter loves how comfy and cool they are!

She also has a pattern for halter if that is your preferred style “Rissa Roo’s Knit Pixie Summer Halter Top, same size range as the other, and a very quick sew also.

She also created a pattern for the halter using woven fabrics, called the Cotton Woven Pixie Halter combo. This pattern has several options, including a dress.   Here is the top view of the pattern with a double ruffle.

Photos above show how you can either tie at the back or tie as a halter.

These patterns are all perfect for this hot summer weather!!
