Remixed Hopscotch top

I won a yard of Urban Zoologie fabric (by Ann Kelle) from Mad About Patchwork a few weeks ago and used it to make Peek-a-boo Pattern’s Hopscotch top for my niece. It’s surprisingly easy, even for a beginner like myself. I was able to (mostly) finish it in one afternoon.

Cutting everything was quick (save for the detail in front, which I had to fussy cut as my first cut was nothing but horses arses, which seemed a little inappropriate, ha ha). The instructions (with accompanying pictures) were well done and I didn’t have any trouble, despite this being the most complicated item I’ve ever sewn. The best part is that I now feel much more confident with sewing clothing and I can’t wait to make more clothes (I already have another Peek-a-boo dress pattern and some lovely plaid fabric).I may even make something for myself soon :)

The cap sleeves sounded a bit scary, at first, but they weren’t too difficult:

I even found some ridiculously cute matching buttons:
