The Pensacola  Beach Petal Top by Seaside Notions is a sweet little top for all seasons. With its three sleeve options and cute  petal skirt, this  perfectly drafted pattern  will not disappoint.  An easy sew for any beginner, the pattern is easy to read with clearly drawn illustrations to guide you along.

The sizes range between 12 months and 12 years and  with  instructions  included for simple adjustments , you can easily  add length to the petals and   bodice for a  perfect.

You will also get the opportunity to “cutie-fy“  your little top by adding  lace (or whatever you fancy)  to the neck     ( I made a little ruffle out of fabric)  and  bias trim  to the petals for a truly unique look every time you make one.

Now what more could this pattern offer me that it didn’t already? Top of the list for me - it uses small amounts of fabric.  To give you an example, I used ¼ yard for the bodice and bodice lining and less than ½ yard for the petals.  This made me a size 3T with 5T skirt length.  I only had to make one button hole and the placket in the back was a breeze to make.
 Hope on over to the Facebook page or take a look at the pattern on the SeasideNotions website or blog for even more information and inspiration.

Happy Sewing!
