The "Round Neck Top and Dress" has been a hit in the smaller sizes. Now you can make one for your tweens and teens, too! The same author will show you how to make them in sizes 8-14.

This top has fabulous vintage-style appeal, and now you can make one for your tween or teen! In fact, she may even want to make it for herself!

The top features a rounded yoke at the neck, button shoulders and contrast band at hem. Choose your favorite two fabrics, and get to sewing! This is the top she'll wear all Summer, and love it so much she'll wear it through the Winter layered over a white tee and jeans.

This pattern includes instructions for sizes 8 through 14, with options for lengthening top into dress if desired.

From the author:
"My intent with this pattern is to make sewing stylish children's clothing more accessible to those who are newer to sewing. In this tutorial, the photographs take you through the construction step-by-step, and the directions are written in plain language that is easy to understand. My goal is that you have a pleasant sewing experience, and end up with a garment you'll be proud to have your child wear."

This pattern is quick and easy. I used it to make my daughter a dress for her birthday. It only took me two hours and at least half an hour of that was making a belt for it. =) I widened the bottom of the skirt just a bit as my girls love to run and play even at church. Turned out beautifully. Thanks for a great pattern.

Love the round neck top! Easy to construct and wear. I do like to hand stitch the inside where it connects just to have a nice finished look. I know most people don't mind what the inside looks like but I'm willing to take the few extra minutes to make it nice.

Great top for the older girls who still love their mama's creations. I love the large area for embroidery design. The pattern is easy to read, but you have to be paying attention to your rectangle sides. It is kind of easy to get turned around and end up grabbing the seam ripper. Take the pattern nice and slow. If you read all directions (instead of trying to hurry to finish- like me) then you will have no problems!

My daughter and I both loved the original round neck pattern so much that I emailed the author and asked her to make it in larger sizes and she did! Thank you so much! I still love this pattern!

Hello, I just made this dress tonight and it turned out great - after I made a huge mistake with cutting out the fabric rectangles. The picture said you were using a size 2 as example and I thought you were referring to the medium on this pattern (the 2nd size). I followed the picture rather than the written chart. It might be helpful if you make it clear that you meant you are using the toddler size 2 or change the picture to reflect the larger size pattern. It might save someone like me from ruining a yard of fabric. :)
