Sew to Grow's Bondi Top really is a perfect beginner top for a new garment sewist. The sizing is easy to understand and alter if needed. This top has a total of three pattern pieces and bias binding. You also get to learn how to do a simple pleat on the garment. This top will help you build confidence in your sewing and you will also learn my tricks for installing bias tape! And once you see how easy it is to sew with, you will be sewing it on everything!

Be ready to have a fun day of stitching up your very own Bondi Top by Sew to Grow!
