Annalise has been one of my most requested patterns for the last 10+ years. I started making it in the early 2000’s and sold many of these tops on Ebay. I made more of these than I can count! So many options – some with shorts, many with capris and some with skirts – all looked so cute!
After many years of selling, I submitted the pattern to AS&E magazine. They chose to publish only the 3/4 length sleeve. They called the top “Temily”. It was published in sizes 2, 4 & 6 and was in Issue #80. The picture below was that sample that was sent to them.
After our first granddaughter was born, I sized the top down to infant sizes so that it would work for crawling little ones.
I loved this cute and practical top for the little girls. Made from Imperial broadcloth, they could be washed and worn regularly! Of course, as our girls have grown, I’ve added larger sizes as well. The pattern is available in sizes 6 – 12 mo. to a size 8.
Because of the continued requests for this pattern, I’ve now published it in my Etsy shop. Click the link and you’ll be taken there. Not only can it be printed on a home printer (8-1/2″ x 11″ paper), but I’ve included an A0 file for those that prefer to have a full size copy printed at a print shop. Honestly, it doesn’t take long to trim (with paper-cutter) and tape the 12 pages together, but I do understand that there are many that would prefer not to do that. Now both options are available.
More eye candy for you to enjoy!!! I hope this inspires you to whip up one of these adorable tops for your special little girl or young lady.
I’ve saved my favorite one for last!!!
I hope that this will get your creative juices flowing!!! The pattern has lots of tips for working with rickrack, making pretty gathers, etc. You’ll be able to create a stunning top in no time at all!
Keep on stitching……
