Top-toberfest Day Six-Tops to Try or Buy

To celebrate the sixth day of Top-toberfest I thought that I'd share a few tops that I didn't get around to making, along with a few spots of inspiration.

Pattern by Little Weasel (this one is a freebie).
I don't know how many of you frequent the sewing site, but I love it.  You can find great tutorials on sewing techniques, along with a huge collection of patterns (both for purchase and free of charge).  I recently printed out the pattern piece for this flutter sleeve cardi.  I need to find the right material for the project before I set to work.

Speaking of cardigans, have you checked out Katy's (from No Big Dill) Billy Cardi tutorial on Luvin' the Mommyhood?  I can't wait to try this one.  I love the neckline, the lack of closure, and all of the raw edge goodness.  Also, do you recognize the rib knit she used?  I used it on this and this  (you can find it at Joann's)

The Sadie Shirt.  I mentioned this top earlier this week, but I'm going to mention it again.  Jess has come up with an easy to follow tutorial to create this adorable ruffled placket top.  I need to find a little girl to sew it for, maybe a niece or the neighbor girl I watch during the week...I'll have to decide.  You can find the full tutorial here on her blog Craftiness Is Not Optional.

This next top I really want to own.  You can find it for sale here at Replicca.  I love the color, I love the fit, but most of all I love the cowl.  Oh it looks so comfortable.

Well those are a few of the tops that are inspiring me lately.  If you are need of a bit more inspiration don't forget to check out all of the fabulous tops that are linked up in the Top-Toberfest show and tell.
