Näh-Connection: Issie Top Blog Tour (pattern by sewpony, color changing sequin applique by Alles für Selbermacher)

Today I’m joining my wonderful friend Suz from sewpony for her Issie Top blogtour. Issie is her newest pattern and a real hit. It’s based on a former pattern, The Little Betty Top, but includes even more variations now and is a bit more polished. When Suz asked me if I wanted to join her pattern tour, I couldn’t resist to say yes even though I have quite a long to sew list at the moment. Baby #3 is due in just 6-7 weeks and I’m that crazy mama that wants to get EVERYTHING done until then. However, my daugther has been begging me for a top with color changing sequins and this was just the perfect pattern to play with.

As I told you Issie includes many variations. Vertical and horizontal ruffles, hem band or a slightly A-line style with a topstitched hem, various sleeve lengths and the beautiful Rose collar. I decided to go for a long sleeve plain version with Rose collar. The plain version was most suitable for adding an applique and the Rose collar just paired perfectly with the polka dots.

Are color changing sequins a big thing in other countries, too? Here in Germany ALL girls are wearing tees with them. My daughter is totally in love with them and has been begging me for one. Me, however, I think most of these tees are extremly ugly and not at all appropriate for an 8 year old. Plus, I just CAN’T buy RTW for her. Thinking about those poor girls in India or Bangladesh that had to sew these t-shirts for hours and hours without a break or free weekends while earning not enough money to actually live and too much to die, just makes me so angry. I’d much rather spend an evening in front of my sewing machine and sew it myself.

For quite some time I, thus, didn’t give in to her begging. Luckily some german shops then started to sell sew-on appliques. I got 3 different ones from Alles für Selbermacher. When they arrived, I reached right away for this polka dot fabric by NOSH. Its color suits the Simply Apple applique really well. I got this fabric from NOSH (sponsored) already some months ago and the mint colorway is currently not available. However, there are other colors that I might have to get! As always with NOSH fabrics the jersey is of the very best quality and organic cotton. I know that this will be a fave tee of my daughter for a very long time.

I chose the Rose collar for this version. The dots and collar together give a kind of vintage look that’s quite adorable. Plus, I was super curious how to sew this collar. Turns out to be pretty easy! I really enjoyed putting this Issie Top together and can’t wait to try out some of the other variations. But first I’ll have to tackle the other things on my long to sew list :)

Ah, I almost forgot to talk about sizing. As you can see the shoulder seams are bit too short for my daughter. It’s not bothering her, but I wanted to just tell you that this is not a problem of the pattern. I mixed sizes (width 6, length 8) and forgot to do so at the shoulders and neckline. I’m thinking that a size 8 their would have been the better choice…

    This is fantastic Annika!! Yes sparkly sequins that are reversible are popular here too! My girls don’t have any either because I try to make the majority of their clothes. I am glad your daughter got her 🍎 appliqué at last! It pairs with the beautiful mint Nosh fabric perfectly! Thank you so much for joining me!!!

    I love this top, Annika! The sequins are so much fun (my daughter would love them, too), and collar adds just the right touch for an older girl. And that Nosh fabric is gorgeous!
