I had a few testers, including Bettina and Catherine, who sewed the Top Knot in small scale floral and I LOVED it. This all over small scale floral worked for all versions of the Top Knot Romper and Dress. I purchased #2 & #4 already!
A simple textured fabric is equally beautiful and classic. I loved this version Esther made for her daughter. There are loads of awesome chambray, double gauze and linen blends that have a great drape and subtle texture. You won’t have a hard time recreating this look.
I’ve been seeing a lot of aztec printed rompers on Pinterest. I would totally wear this style and I think it would be adorable on a little girl or teen. One of my testers, Indu, made her daughter an ikat print Top Knot romper that has a similar vibe. Stone Mountain and Daughter has a very cool selection of ikat fabric, which might be too heavy for the Top Knot style but I love it none the less. The above fabric recommendations are all light weight and suitable for the Top Knot pattern.
Who doesn’t love polka dots?! Here are a few dot print options that would be so sweet on your little one! You could also hack the pattern to add ruffles and bows!
Last but not least, I’ve been obsessing over the indigo and shibori dyed prints that have been all over! I have plans to indigo dye with my girlfriends this summer. Both Raspberry Creek and Imagine Gnats offer this fabric and I have already bought a few yards with the intention of sewing a Top Knot Dress for my eldest, but now I’m thinking I should keep it for myself…
I hope you enjoyed this round up and I would love to know what fabric you would choose for your Top Knot!
