Hopscotch Top - Oliver + S

 When we found out that Jess and Uber's second was going to be a girl I decided it was about time to try the  Hopscotch Top by Oliver + S. I'd been looking at tops others have made for quite awhile, you'll find tons of inspiration if you go to that link. I was using my serger for the first time and didn't want to ruin the fabric Jess bought so I started with a soft old t-shirt of mine that had holes in it. I was able to avoid the holes and get a  6 months size. There were a few learning issues between me and the serger, so I'm glad I made that decision. The pattern is easy to follow and I was really happy with the way it turned out. Since it was my first try, with fabric I am not sure that will last too long, I decided to leave the hems with just a serged finish.
I picked out some fabric on Fabric.com and Jess ordered a yard which ended up being almost a yard and a quarter.  
I was able to get three dresses from 6 - 24 months.
If Jess decides she would rather them be tops, I can shorten them.
I simply love this pattern and can see making many more..... maybe I already have......

  2. oh yeah, that's one of my favorites! I just recently tried to run knit through my serger and it did weird things...I need to practice. I love the little grey one the best because it was your shirt. I should try that with an old t.
