The Sarah ruched cross top is a darling swing style top, perfect to wear alone, or with a blouse or tee shirt underneath. The bodice is fully lined and buttons up the back through the bodice.

Wear the Sarah top the entire year by simply layering it over a top in the colder months, or wearing alone in the warmer months.

Size 18m - Size 8

*Note: A serger is recommended for the ruching strips. If you do not have a serger, the raw edges of the ruching strips can be turned and sewn.

I am SO EXCITED about this pattern. I have wanted this since I got the Tess twirl skirt pattern last year. I already have three cut out and ready. The instruction are very clearly written with plenty of pictures to go along with it.

3 to 4 buttons (depending on size making),
wash out marking pens or chalk

Fabric yardage:
60” wide fabric ( I recommend this width for size 6X and larger unless
you want to cut the bottom gathered section of the swing top down
the length of the fabric.)

Size 18-24 months: 1/2 yard
Size 3-4: 5/8 yard
Size 5-6: 3/4 yard
Size 6X-7: 1 yard
Size 8: 1 yard

Fabric scraps for ruching: You need about 3” wide by width of
fabric. You can use two colors or one.
