LOL Swing Top


When I started testing patterns on the beginning of the year I never thought it would become such an addiction! But it is… And so today I bring you my version of another pattern I’ve tested recently. The latest release of Jennuine Design it’s the LOL Swing Top (affiliate link) and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to try it first hand.


It’s such an awesome design and Jennifer and my fellow testers did an amazing job to make sure that every detail on this pattern was perfect!

My favorite thing about this pattern, and one of the things that makes it so unique is the beautiful racerback yoke. It really makes a wonderful swingy top that you’ll love to sew and that every girl would love to wear.

I made a woven version size 5T for Madalena, and I really like how it fits, but since I made this version the pattern has been perfected, so when you make yours it will be even more awesome! 🙂


The pattern has separate instructions for woven and knits, and I can tell you that it just looks as pretty in knits as in wovens. It’s sized from newborn until size 12T so I’ll definitely be making these for a long time.

I used a lightweight cotton from my local fabric shop for it, paired it with some dark blue bias tape and used a pink button to add a little pop of color, matching the little dots of the print. I thought of using pink for the bias but thank god I messed up when I was joining it in a circle. I’m so in love with this toned down version.


I only have good things to say about this pattern. The instructions are clear and it has plenty of illustrations to guide you along the way. I can’t wait to make a knit version and use some ribbing for the first time! Yes I still have so many different things and techniques to try in my sewing adventures… 🙂

Congratulations Jennifer for such a great pattern and thank you so very much for allowing me to test it.

  1. Que giro! O botão dá-lhe um toque esecial! E acho que tenho um retalho desse tecido aqui no meu stash. 😉 Em malha também deve ser o máximo, mas acreditas que até hoje ainda não consegui encontrar ribbing?… Se encontrares diz qualquer coisa.

    • Obrigada Sara!! 🙂 o botão era o spare de alguma coisa da boden. Eles têm sempre umas cores óptimas e quando não dizem nada aproveito-os sempre para outras coisas… 😉 Tenho ideia de ter visto ribbing no, quando tiver a certeza aviso! 😀

  2. Girissima! Realmente a fita de viés em azul escuro fica perfeita. Muitas vezes é tão difícil tomar decisões em relação a estes pequenos detalhes que fazem a diferença, não é?
    Só espero ainda ter tempo para fazer um top destes para cada uma das minhas filhas este verão… É mesmo um molde fantástico!

    • Obrigada Marta! São escolhas super difíceis às vezes 😉 Fiquei mesmo contente com o resultado final ainda bem que me enganei. A Jennifer teve uma trabalheira para deixar as medidas do viés e do ribbing perfeitas mas o resultado final é muito bom! 🙂

  4. Adoro. O tecido é o máximo e eu adoro bolinhas <3. O molde parece ser espetacular. Eu também estou a fazer um vestido para a R. com um molde muito parecido, mas é malha e não estou a gostar muito do resultado do binding. Vamos ver 😉

  5. What a fun little top! I love this toned down version, as you say. I am itching to make one, but I may have to wait a little longer – it is still very cold in my corner of the world!
