Girls Spaghetti strap top sewing pattern
A spaghetti strap top will probably never go out of style! A simple cut that is beautiful, elegant and not so difficult to sew or hack!
The spaghetti strap top pattern is available in two versions. You can sew the top as a top (model A) and also as a dress (model B). Simply sew a ruffled length of fabric onto the shorter version and your done! In the lower area of the dress we also sewed three tucks – that really makes a difference and looks more playful.
We sewed our cute little dress from the checked cotton fabric, article No. 113273.
With a touch of nostalgia, but by no means old-fashioned! This somewhat forgotten classic really deserves to be included in the collection of our favorite summer looks.
The pattern is designed for woven fabrics – light cotton fabrics, poplin, and a batiste would also be good choices for this dress version.
Do you already know our cotton voile fabrics? With a weight of 75 g / sqm, they are perfect for very delicate girls’ dresses and tops.
Are you a fabric dealer? You can find the fine voile prints on our online shop in many colours and designs.

SEWING THE SPAGHETTI TOP / DRESS
For the top you need 0.25 x 0.75 mt of fabric and about 1.2 mt of bias tape.
For the dress: approx. 0.85 x 1.5 mt and approx. 1.2 mt bias tape.
Unfold the bias tape, lay it flush with the edge of the top (front and back) and fix it with pins or clips and sew exactly on the fold.
Fold the bias tape over to the other side and pin it securely. Make sure that both folded edges of the bias tape are exactly on top of each other or ideally even protrude 1-2 mm. This way you can be sure that all edges of the fabric are included when sewing. Sew on bias tape.
Pin the front pattern piece of the top to the back pattern piece, right sides together, sew the side seams, finish the seams and press.
Use the bias tape to edge the armholes concealing the edge of the fabric.
Bias tape for armhole edges + straps incl. Seam allowance
The bias tape consumption for both armhole edges is calculated as follows: 2 x armhole edge + 2 x 2 cm seam allowances + strap length
3-4 Years (length 16.5 cm)
4-5 Years (length 17 cm)
5-6 Years (length 17.5 cm)
Divide the bias tape into 2 pieces, sew the end pieces of the bias tape together, pin them to the armholes and bind them as described above.
If you’ve never worked with bias binding, be sure to stop by Milliblu’s.
Overcast the hem, iron around 1 cm inwards, topstitch.
SEW SPAGHETTI STRAP DRESS
For the skirt part you need about 1.25mt x 30cm / 36cm / 42 cm of fabric.
