Finch Top & Shorts Sewing Pattern

$15.00 | Sizes 2T-8

Cartwheels on the front lawn and hopscotch on the sidewalk—what could be better suited for summer than shorts and a breezy top? The Finch Shorts feature full pleats, button details (but no buttonholes!), cuffed bottoms and an elastic back waistband. The coordinating Finch Top has a racerback style that allows for plenty of arm movement for swinging from tree branches. An oversized bow artfully disguises the hook and loop closure on one shoulder.
