Delilah TopI am delighted to be part of the Golden Rippy Delilah Top for Ladies Pattern Blog Tour! Rachel has designed a versatile, easy-to-make top pattern with your choice of built-in half or short sleeves. Embellish your top with a bow, flowers or leave it plain. You can go from casual to dressy with this one pattern by switching up fabrics and embellishments.

I spend most of my time designing and sewing for my grandkids and my dogs, but I don’t often design for adults or sew for myself, so when this opportunity came along, I jumped at the chance to do a little self-care sewing along with a pattern review.

My style is pretty casual, so I went with a simple, green, half-sleeve top (no embellishments). I also grabbed some colorful fabric from the bargain bin to sew up a quick scarf as a lovely accessory to my tee.

I did a quick read-through of the pattern, which I found to be very thorough and easy to follow. The pattern pieces printed out and assembled perfectly! I love that Rachel has the cutting chart for the bands on the pattern piece. I do this on all my patterns {that have cutting charts} because I think it is so convenient. Obviously the saying “Great minds think alike” applies here!

The cutting and sewing didn’t take long. I think I had about an hour total in the whole thing. I love the end result, the fit was great and this is just such a comfortable top! It’s pretty hot here now, but I did the longer sleeve so I can wear this top through the fall.
