Hi! I recently purchased this pattern, and after printing out all the pieces and starting to cut them out and tape them together, I am having a lot of trouble figuring out how all of the pattern pieces are supposed to fit together. I know that it says to match the stars on each of the pieces but it doesn't tell you which pieces go together. Some of the stars match in space but don't look right together. It doesn't make sense. Without a layout key, I am finding even beginning this project to be very hard. Can someone please help me with this, either the author of the pattern or someone that has actually been able to figure it out and make it? I would love to get started on this top, but am scared to just wing it and it end up being wrong. Thanks for your help in advance :)


I emailed the address left on the pattern by the author if anyone had questions but have yet to hear a response from her :(

A-frickin-dorable. Very easy, too, once you figure out how to sew the neckline together. A note: my daughter is 4, and I found the size 4 hit just below her bottom. This was too short for me. I'm going to try a size 6 and see how that goes. Still--just perfect! Thanks for this super-easy and very customizable pattern!

Okay - gotta say I LOVE this pattern! It is just what I was looking for - something easy to make my daughter some tops to go over her leggings so her little tush is not on display for all to see. I have already made her two tops in the past two days, and the only reason I haven't made more is because I had other things I had to do (life gets in the way of my sewing at times, ya know?). This is a very clear and EASY pattern to follow, and it has room for some error in the measurements and cutting, which is always nice. Just be sure you are cutting that 45 degree angle on the neck pieces in the right direction! I did it wrong initially on both tops - grrr! I just need to pay more attention. Anyhow - LOVE this pattern - it is going to get a lot of use in this house!

This is an easy pattern to sew. All instructions are done using a sewing machine. You do not need a serger to sew this dress! (But a serger is great if you have one... I usually use my serger for everything!)
You will need a stretch cotton/lycra or cotton interlock, a coordinating ribknit, 2 buttons (optional) and coordinating thread.
