Ever want to just feel fancy when you go out without really dressing up?! The Tie Waist Top known as the Emma By Rebecca Page (formerly Mummykins and Me) is the perfect option! It is available in Ladies (XXS to 5x), Girls (newborn to 12 years) and Doll sizes. There are also a handful of various options including length and sash with this pattern which is perfect for any occasion.

18670896_10155483610852859_4337387609623977892_n.jpgI was selected to test the Girls Version Size 3 – 4 with any length of choice. The best part about this pattern is that you can use any knit or woven fabric – even chiffon; or you can mix and match!

For my muslin version I used 100% cotton woven knit for a top length with hook and eye closure for the collar. There weren’t any additional accessories that would be required to complete this project – I had everything at home already! There is no elastic – but gathering is required. Mind you, this is my muslin version…but perfect for the Summer! I chose a patterned fabric that I knew would be lightweight and easily breathable while wearing. This top is just perfect to wear out!


The overall muslin sew-up took just 30 minutes from cut to hemming with a topstitch finish. Don’t worry though, if you do not have a coverstitch you can easily use youre Sewing Machine with a Single OR Double Needle!


Aren’t sure of what a hook and eye is?! I used the smallest version of these available at my local Joann Fabric’s shop.18787958_10103523310050395_1291816728_n.jpg

Now..for my final version I used double brushed poly in burgundy for the bottom hem trim and then for the collar from Knitpop. Main fabric is from Joann Fabric’s.



Yes the models are different but both fit into the Girls 3-4 based upon their measurements. The directions for this Tie Waist Top pattern are perfect – they are extremely detailed and even have clear photos of how to properly sew your garment. I love how the measurements for each specific size is exact – there is no need to second guess on which size to create! The sizing is pretty similar to RTW clothing in terms of fit.
