W Gauze Itty Bitty Top for Little Momo

The summer is here, and it it the season for one of my favorite dress pattern :)  This is Itty Bitty Baby Dress Pattern from Made by Rae.  I made 2 dresses and 1 top using this pattern last summer.  The dresses still can be worn this year, but the top I made last year is too small for Momo this year.  What a perfect excuse to make a new one :)

I used 3T size pattern available here this time.  I made the bodice and the skirt shorter than the original, to make this as a top rather than a dress.

The fabric I used is a reversible double gauze fabric.  I was thinking about making the dress when I bought the fabric, but now I think I like this as a top.  I love the fabric...it is soft and smooth, feels good to the skin.  I think Momo is comfortable wearing this top too.

This is a thin fabric that is a bit see-through.  I probably did not need double layers for the skirt part, if I had used a larger piece and gathered the fabric more.   But I wanted to take the advantage of the reversible fabric and have the solid side shown a little.

The fabric frays a lot, so while assembling them I decided to sandwich the skirt part between the bodice front and lining fabric.  I should have thought about this earlier, because I had to rip the already-sewn bodice a little to make the opening, and it is not fun to use the ripper on a delicate fabric :(

Though it is easy to get wrinkled, I love double gauze fabric.  I have bought more double gauze fabric, now just thinking what I should make them into...

Linking up to those fun parties.
