Just Add Detail : Wild and Free Ziggy

Happy Monday everyone! The kids are back in school this week (after March break) and the week has been a mixer of crazy and relaxing. So to start off this week right, I figure a ‘Wild and Free’ top was in order!

I got an email a couple of weeks ago from MadeIt Patterns asking if I would participate in their ‘Just Add Detail’ tour. The tour is to show how versatile their Ziggy top pattern, by adding creativity and details you’ve got yourself a one of a kind top every time.

For my version I pulled out a flower knit from my stash, that I received over the holidays digging through my grand-maman’s stash! I loved it as soon as I spotted it… And so did A! Of course, she’s my girly girl!

I sewed up a size 4 with a 7 length and this fit is awesome! It’s a loose fitting top, which she’ll definitely be able to layer, or through this on over a pair of leggings. I love it (in other words, I need to make my own version!).


For my detail, I thought I would add a simple fabric paint quote on the front. I’ve had it in mind it write this on one of her shirts lately and couldn’t resist layering overtop of the floral. I just free handed this one with some black paint and a brush.

Well, that’s it for me! I’ve already got a couple more of these cut out for the boys that I can’t wait to finish up. If you want your own copy of the Ziggy top, the pattern is currently on sale for 20% off for one week (until March 29th)! Also make sure to check out all the participants in the tour and see all their awesome creativeness 🙂

    That floral fabric with the handwriting on it is super cool and right on trend. Great job!

    "Tagging" the floral print gives the shirt such an edgy look! I should totally see it hanging on the rack at Zara.
