The Ballerina Tie Top for One Thimble issue 18

One Thimble issue 18 is out! One Thimble is a digital sewing magazine full of great articles, tutorials, tips and PDF patterns. I found out about OT on issue #5, I can't believe it's already issue 18! 
I am joining today the official OT Blog Tour with Abby's Ballerina Tie Top. I have also made the Origami Sweater, which has been blogged already (you can see it here).

Abby's Ballerina Tie Top, pattern by The Wolf and The Tree.

- Prize Garden 100% organic cotton interlock knit, Sidewalk collection by Rae Hoekstra (Made by Rae) for Cloud 9 Fabrics. I have already used this knit here, on a self drafted girls' knit dress. It is I have ever sewn. Love it! 
- Black rib, from my local fabric shop.

Pattern & Sewing Details:

Abby's Ballerina Tie Top is a fitted knit top with two ties around the waist. It offers the following options: 

- regular t-shirt neckband or cowl 
- several sleeve lengths: long sleeve, 3/4 sleeve, medium sleeve, short sleeve or sleeveless.

It is available in sizes 12 months to 14 years, and...there is a women's version too! 

I have made a size 7 for this skinny 9 year old, and have opted for short sleeves. Spring/Summer season is almost here and I am already planning my kids SS18 wardrobe.

This top is a quick & easy sew! Perfect for beginners. The end result looks so cute on girls!

Have a look at all the articles, tutorials and tips you can find on this issue: 

So many interesting things to read, right? I haven't purchased this issue yet (tour bloggers get one or two patterns, not the full magazine, so I'll have to buy it too and I'll definitely will because I do love this digital magazine), and I am looking forward to read "Trending Fabrics", "Rebranding your business" (although I do not own a sewing business I am always thinking about changing this blog's name... no genius ideas for a new name came  to my mind yet...), and also "Graphic Design". 

And here is a sneak peek of all the patterns included:

As I said before, I have made the Origami sweater as part of the pattern testing period. I absolutely love it and totally recommend this pattern! You can read all about my version here

Happy sewing!


  1. Eron visits Grey and offers him the opportunity to regain control of his body, with the help of a neck implant called Stem. free movies online The surgery succeeds spectacularly, Grey signs a non-disclosure agreement and heads home, promising that, at least for now, it appears to the world that he's still a quadriplegic. Grey quickly learns that Stem can talk to him (as voiced by Simon Maiden). Given the lack of progress by a police investigator named Cortez (Betty Gabriel), Grey takes advantage of Stem's Alexa-on-steroids capabilities to find the men who killed his wife. losmovies Normally not a violent man, Grey finds himself overmatched by these men, who themselves are technologically enhanced, until he learns how Stem can also help him fight. But, alas, avenging his wife's death isn't as satisfying as Grey might've expected.
