Moss -- Sofiona Designs

Well spring is supposedly on its way, so what a perfect time for a sleeveless top.  This pattern is amazing and so versatile.  It comes in 3 lengths; Top, Dress, and Maxi.

It has an option for an oversized hood and pockets, literally something for everyone!!!  My daughter's jaw dropped when she saw the line drawing, and I even sacrificed some fabric I'd been hoarding for myself.

I made an 8/10 mashup, and it fits perfectly, even the pocket placement was spot on.  I could hardly get it off of her for bed.  This is an intermediate pattern.  It's not hard, but there are some areas you need to be be very precise when sewing.  So just make sure to read through each step, and follow the directions.  I made 2 and they both turned out beautifully.

To add the beads to the end of the straps, I just waited until I was done, and used my loop turner to pull them through.  That said my beads had a very large opening.  If you're using narrower barrel beads I would leave the ends open, or just cut them off, slide the bead on, and then knot it.  It was such a quick and easy add-on, but I think it really makes the straps pop. 

This dress is perfect for summer, you can wear it over leggings or as a cover-up which is the intended purpose, since it pairs beautifully with the Narwhal swimsuit, also being released. 

The detailing on the front panel is so unique, and pretty.  I really love this pattern.
