Maxwell Top Pattern

One of my goals is to sew more clothes from patterns.  So when the opportunity came up to be a pattern tester for some of Shwin & Shwin‘s new patterns, I jumped on it.  These gals come up with some of the cutest patterns for kids!  And there are so many amazing free tutorials on their site too.  One of the patterns in their current collection is the Maxwell Top for boys and I LOVED it as soon as I first saw it.

I debated whether I should make the top a little more feminine by picking more “girly” fabrics, but decided to go with something simple and (in my opinion) gender neutral.  I knew Yuki could pull it off.  The fabric reminds me of a Japanese shirt, though I don’t actually know if the fabric is Japanese.  I love the finished shirt and all the cute details.

It was my first time sewing a collared shirt so I had a little trouble attaching the collar.  For that reason, I’d say this is a good intermediate or intermediate beginner pattern.  Otherwise, the shirt came together nicely with pretty clear and simple directions.

I think she looks adorable!  I know I will definitely be making more for her as she gets bigger.  The pattern is for sizes 12m-5T!  And it’s always great to find an awesome boy pattern.  I can’t imagine there’s anyone who wouldn’t need this pattern!
