Cathy Dress/Top

I made this girly ruffle top for Hanan way back in June and realised I have not blogged about it even after I've made a few more for custom orders. It is my favorite pattern because only 4 pieces of fabric to sew, very easy! I used the beautiful Cathy Dress pattern available HERE.

The dress version would add loads to the girly look but Hanan's gotta wear hers with leggings here after I accidentaly made a shorter version :P. The best thing is this dress is so versatile, can be layered with tshirt underneath for cooler days and worn just as it is in our hot climate. It is also a great grow-with-me dress as the elastic neckline allows for that. Besides most girls grows taller instead of wider, just in the case of my girls :) 

The back view. And if you notice all the deco tapes I used to embellish my pics here (obviously I need to escape from my insanely hectic life this morning lol), well all inspired from this ultra cool blog I stumbled upon few months back. Katrina from puglypixel is the artist, lovely, lovely work, hugely talented!

I got tons of orders to complete and final exam is approaching too. Anxiety creeps in but I am holding it all together with the aim of not a stitch of sewing one week before exam. For those who have placed orders, you  gals are amazing, thank you for your patience :)

Have a beautiful, creative day peeps *hugs*


  1. So cute in that fabric! I've actually made that top 6 times now-I sew for 3 grandaughters & they all love it so much!

  2. It is so cute! And tunic with leggings or dress without, its super girly with all the ruffles going on! Isn't that the best pattern!? I have made 3 children's version and 1 adult version. I um sorta went crazy! whoops! Have a good day!
