The Bubble Poccket Top and Spin Skirt

Elegance and Elephants is releasing their newest pattern TODAY - and guess what that pattern is for an ENTIRE OUTFIT!!!  How cool is that, a top and skirt all in one.  Today is the Release of the Bubble Pocket Top and the Spin Skirt.

ok-  that should say 'SPIN Skirt... gah I edited the image and then left for vacation, and now have no way of changing the image... hopefully you will all forgive me ;o)

If you love the bubble pocket shorts (like I do) - then you are going to love the new Bubble Pocket Top.  It is an easy fit garment that just screams summer.  I love the bubble pockets and the clean lines of the V neck. The top is fully lined and can be made form any light to medium weight woven - I'm thinking it could be done in a knit too... ideas ideas ;o)

My favorite part of the skirt is the waist band - it is an elastic waist with a functioning drawstring - the instructions include making your own, but I chose to go with a ribbon for mine.

I also did a double layer skirt because my main fabric is see through.

She absolutely loved wearing it, and I loved making it!

Dizzy little girl was taking her Spin skirt literally - good thing Dada's hands are always there to catch...


  1. So beautiful! And I love how you used ribbon for the skirt...looks so lovely with that delicate fabric! Thank you so much, Suzanne! :)

  2. Very Pretty, Suzanne. I love the lightweight fabric, it looks so flowy. I ended up doing the attached bloomers and it was so easy. I wrote a mini tutorial for how to do it with my blog post.

  3. I totally agree with you...the waistband of the skirt is awesome! When I was sewing up the skirt, I realized that my store bought skirt had a waistband that was put together the exact same way!

  4. Love your version... and the top fabric choice is wonderful. =)

  5. Oh, how I love this combo! It looks so delicate and sweet!

  6. So stinking cute! The blanket under her makes the photos perfection! Did you make the quilt, as well?
