Juliet is the new addition to the Love Notions arsenal.
It’s a cute and romantic take on a t-shirt featuring a lot of beautiful details and options so we can customize it to our heart’s content.
It’s such a sweet top.
The Juliet Top is a casual type of top with comfort in mind. Sew it up with four different sleeve options- flutter, sleeveless, short, and long. The faux placket and pintuck yoke make this top standout. You’ll want to make it over and over in your favorite knit fabrics.
Aside from the sleeve options, you can choose between the plain yoke, pintucks, and faux placket.
If you read pintucks and go immediately NOPE, I get it!
That was my first reaction as well. But the instructions and construction of it make it super simple and easy. It was a breeze to sew!
I’ve made two shirts, both with the short sleeve option and both out of rayon knit (viscose tricot).
This polka dot was the perfect match for the pattern, and the dainty pearl buttons were the cherry on top. Such a classic look!
The center-front gathering is another darling detail that I love!
I had fun making this one, it made me think of my mom the entire time. This was one of her favorite colors to wear and she would definitely have loved the top.
The pattern is easy to sew and if you’re not making the pintucks, it’s also super fast to put together. The one thing I’d say it’s important with this one is fabric choice.
Because of the front gathering, it can easily become a bit nightgown-ist depending on the fabric. That’s not a bad thing per se, but just something to keep in mind. 😉
This next one is the simple yoke option.
I must say that even though I do love all the detail of the other one, this more simple version is my favorite.
It makes for a clean and chic t-shirt and adds spice to a classic basic look. Love that!! I may need one in every color!
Love it so much that I picked the plain yoke again for my next one…
Juliet dress hack
You know I can’t help myself. 🙂
And, of course, it had to be another twinning moment with my girl Jess.
We decided to lengthen Juliet to a dress length and use a jegging knit for a more urban look.
I also made puff sleeves by following this tutorial.
I’m so HAPPY with how this dress turned out!
This time Jess and I didn’t have a specific plan or inspo photo to follow, so we just went with the flow and decided to have some FUN with styling.
I always get a kick out of the power of shoes and accessories, they can totally make or break an outfit as well as completely change the vibe of it.
Here’s the breakdown of my combos:
And I was surprised by how much I liked it paired it with the Metra vest hack I made for my Han Solo look on May the 4th, and a ribbon as a belt.
This dress can go anywhere, just a matter of picking the right shoe and bag combo!
I love the heels and clutch look, but the sneakers and denim jacket will probably be the most used one. Cute and comfy always win!
Perfectly cute with and without a belt, but I do love that pop of color!
This is it from me this time around, but there are oh so many more ways to style this dress. Head on over to Jess’ brand new blog to check out her styling choices! It’s What Jess Does
