Earlier this week I blogged about the adorable Schoolboy Vest that is part of Pattern Parcel #4. Today I wanted to share with you another great pattern from this parcel: the Maxwell Top.
The Maxwell Top, designed by Shwin Designs, is a trendy twist on a boy’s button up. It features a contrast yoke, epaulets, a fun button closure and military inspired pockets.
This is another pattern that can be dressed up or down. I chose to dress my little guy in Alvin stretch baby jeans (Ottobre 4/3013) done in a stretch grey denim. You can get the same look with the Small Fry Jeans which are included in the parcel.
The fabric I used are some amazing Stenzo poplins from L’Oiseau Fabrics. If you’ve never sewn with poplins before, you are missing out! They are a tightly woven cotton fabric that is perfect for garments. They drape and wear MUCH better than quilting cotton.
Today is the LAST DAY to get your Pattern Parcel!
