Make a Dress with the Popsicle Top Pattern from Oh Sew Kat!

  • Cut out the Popsicle Top Pattern according to the directions.
  • Cut a skirt piece, 25 inches by 4.5 inches. If you want a fuller skirt, cut it longer than 25 inches.
  • Assemble the Popsicle Top according to the directions. Do not sew the back edge (where the hook and loop tape will go- this also makes it super easy to flip right side out!). Do not sew the hem or add trim.
  • Hem the bottom long edge of the skirt, and gather the top edge.
  • With right sides together, pin the gathered skirt to the hem of the Popsicle Top (treat both layers of the top as one layer), and sew. Top stitch from the front (pretty side of fabric).
  • Finish the back edges in one long seam, and fold in 1/4 inch on each side, press. Add hook and loop tape and continue the seam down to the hem of the dress to catch the pressed in edge.
  • Add tights or leggings and high top reeboks to complete the look! It also looks great with a denim jacket over top.
