A Ruby Top

Last spring I decided to make myself some spring tops. I started with Made by Rae’s Ruby pattern, since I liked the simplicity of it.
I found some cotton voile that I really loved, and went to work on it. It was fairly simple to sew (which is my favorite type of sewing!).
I made my own bias binding, and I love not having to deal with facings.
I do love the voile, but I found that it did need a cami or layering tee since it’s pretty sheer. Depending on your physique, a pattern with these lines could possibly make you look like you’re expecting, which is why I like to wear this with a cardigan or something over it. (Although now that I’m healing my diastasis, I’m enjoying not having to worry about that as much!)
Overall, I think it’s a cute and comfy top.
I still have some fabric left over from last spring (that I bought to make more tops), so I may make some more soon. Do you have a favorite spring/summer top pattern? I’d love to hear suggestions if you have any!


  1. I have always enjoyed a loose aline pattern which gives a bit of shape but is flowing. I am a bit wide at the hip as well.
    Love the print you have chosen, very feminine. There is something about cardigans that says feminine also. Nice combination.
