Titchy Threads has a new pattern called the Rushbrook dress and top. It comes in sizes 12 months to 12 years and can be made as a dress or top, and has options for gathered pockets, flutter sleeves, and a ruffle at the hem. At first glance, you may think this pattern is just for little girls (and it does look adorable little girls). However, I was able to make a beautiful top that my 13 year old will actually wear.
To make the pattern work for tweens and teens, I suggest using the top length and leaving off the ruffles. The result is a cute racerback tank that is teenager approved!
Recommendations: To make the pattern work for tweens and teens, consider leaving off the ruffles.
Fabric: Cotton from Jo-Ann Fabrics
