The Reislust Top PDF Sewing Pattern

The Reislust Top features a slight high low hem that accents the feminine crossover back. The slim, set in sleeves come three quarter length for a mod look. The neckline is slight boat neck, adding to the international vibe of the top. Both shoulders snap open for ease of dressing. The button/snaps create an interesting detail on the shoulders. Make in a classic and clean stripe and pair with your child’s favorite skinny jeans and ballet flats or make in bold colors and pair with an oversized maxi skirt for 2 totally different looks.
