Tallulah Top and Dress
Brand Izzy & Ivy
Tallulah is a comfortable, darling top or dress featuring a crossed bodice, long sleeves with an accent cuff you can fold down to accommodate growing girls, a sash that ties into a sweet bow and finally pouchy pockets to hold some of her favorite treasures! The dress version has a folded hem on the bottom of the skirt. Buttons adorn the sleeve cuffs as well as the pockets. Tallulah can be made with wovens, stretch knits or a combination of both. Our favorite combination is knit for the bodice, sleeves, pockets and wovens for the rest!
Sizes 2-12 for girls are included in the file.
The PDF pattern features computer drawn pattern pieces, and cutting instructions for elements that are rectangles. Tallulah features full-color photographs and easy to follow instructions. Pattern pieces will need to be printed on Letter or A4 paper, set to "no scaling".
Tallulah is rated as an advanced beginner/intermediate pattern. You will need to be comfortable with gathering, and topstitching. There are no buttonholes or zippers. Serger is not required, but if using wovens seams will need to be finished. We have included some tips about working with knits.
Supplies needed: four buttons that are at least 1/2" wide. Fabric, thread and basic sewing supplies. Rotary mat, cutter and ruler.
