8months here we come! Today we are lucky to celebrate with FooFoo Threads! I just love FooFoo Threads patterns. Always well written and girly to the MAX!! I literally tracked Jocelyn down and begged to be in her tester group. Lucky for me she accepted me into her trusted group of testers and I have been loving it ever since! Now let me tell you the pattern we are looking at today. It’s the Lucky Penny Girl’s Knit Ruffle Top! But first (you guessed it!) let’s see how much Ruth has grown!
Watch out world, Ruth is mobile now! She started army crawling which quickly turned into regular crawling. This lead to getting into everything! She loves playing with the magnets on the fridge and even has opened a drawer in the bedroom! She usually gets up 2x a night for a bottle and eats 4-6oz. No purees for this girl, she prefers solid food! Her brother has recently taught her to scream. I’m sure there are mommies that share my dismay on that one! Mommy is her favorite person but her brothers make her laugh something fierce!!!
I have to say that I just love this top. Yes, I’m sure you are thinking, “Doesn’t she love everything?” Well you may be right! I fall in love with each pattern all over again just looking back at these photos and patterns! This top comes in sizes 3-6mo-10. It features a fully lined knit bodice, optional flutter sleeves (single, double, or none), a peek-a-boo style ruffle on the top of the skirt with 2-3 ruffles under, and a woven sash. Everything is knit except for the sash. Now if you want to make a woven skirt you can! There is an addendum on how to do that. There are also two other addendums on how to place a digital image on your top using transfer paper, and general info for sewing with knits! This tutorial is very thorough that even a beginner can make this beauty. It is definitely worth the time to make and one of my favorites in Ruth’s wardrobe!
As you can see I made Ruth’s top without the flutter sleeves and sash. This is paired with the Ruched Ruffled leggings also by FooFoo Threads!
Both patterns can be purchased over on Etsy. She offers tiered pricing, so the more you buy, the more you save! To enter to win a copy of the Lucky Penny simply follow a Rafflecopter giveaway link to get all your entries in!
