Today we have the pleasure of featuring Hayley’s take on the Maxwell Top by Shwin! She did a fab job – how awesome is the yoke detail! Read on to hear all the juicy details!
For my second contribution over at Go To Patterns, I chose the Maxwell Top by Shwin .
The first thing Ethan said when he saw the finished top was “Cool!” That pretty much sums it up… if a 6.5 year old boy thinks it is cool, it likely is.
I love how unique this shirt is!
I created the main shirt out of blue chambray. I added navy blue buttons and one large bronze button at the button tab.
For fun, I sewed up the back yoke in a bold, geometric print, which would also make for some fun summer shorts!
The Maxwell Top pattern ranges from sizes 12 months to 8 years, so I am sadly almost at the end of it. I made the size 6 and it was spot on. How did he get so big already?
He looks pretty hip and cool in it!
I really enjoyed that this pattern has mostly enclosed seams on the inside, including the facings. I did have to seam rip that collar a few times to get it just right, but it was worth it.
Thanks for letting me sew up another awesome pattern from Go To Patterns!
