Lollipop + Gus for girls by p&m Patterns

Nanette Webb French design gus top kids pattern lollipop skirt p&m pattern Papillon et Mandarine pattern sewing pattern

We have been crushing ūüíē¬† on p&m Patterns over the past few weeks! First with Debbie's amazing Billie Jacket for women,¬†and now this sweet and spring-y outfit for girls:¬†Lollipop skirt and Gus top in a size 4.

The Gus top is a super easy, quick sew. I love the sweet bow tie closure for the keyhole opening at the back. I followed the directions and used self-fabric for the bow, but you could easily sub in a double sided ribbon.

The little sleeve tabs are a unique added addition. You could add a button here, but my fabric - Liberty Tana Lawn Lola Isabel B - was fairly busy so I chose to leave them off.

The top also features a band at the bottom that draws the blouse in around the waist...perfect as a substitute for tucking a shirt into pants or skirt.

The Lollipop skirt also has lovely added touches, like the foldover flap pockets and optional contrasting (or self-fabric) band around the hemline (which I didn't add). The button is the Little Bunny button from our collection.

The back waistband calls for 3/4" buttonhole elastic for a custom fit.

p&m Patterns are French patterns, but all directions and pattern markings are now in English. They are very well drafted patterns with great instructions and explanatory drawings. The plastic envelope packaging protects the pattern and makes it easy to re-package the pattern pieces once they are cut and used.
