I've been wanting to share about these tops for forever and now I can! Back in April, I was pattern testing an incredible new pattern from Sarah of LouBeeClothing. It's called the Shandiin and is the perfect top for summer!
The yellow knit and butterfly print is one of the earlier versions, the final pattern has shorter straps and is a bit wider in the front.
The Shandiin Tank & Tunic comes in sizes 12/18 months - 8 years old (21" to 28" chest diameter). Sarah includes some helpful hints on getting the perfect fit. You really need to go off of the chest measurement, not age for this pattern.
Case in point...if you have a tall, slender teenager you might just be able to make the size 8 for her. I'm loving the look of the white knit with the plaid woven!
I mixed and matched knits and wovens for the first 3 tops but this one is all woven. It's just as cute in one fabric as it is using prints and solids together. The pattern comes with a button front version and also a puff hem option. But it's that crescent cut-out in the back that first caught my eye and keeps me wanting to make even more Shandiin tops.:)
