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!
Hey guys! My name is Hayley from the blog Welcome to the Mouse House and the pattern shop Mouse House Creations.
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!
