Ever been to the beaches of St. Tropez? No, me neither. But one can always dream about the warm, sandy beaches of an exotic French getaway. And in the meantime, evoke the look of the socially elite that made St. Tropez a popular destination back in the 60’s.
The moment I saw the testing call for the St. Tropez Top and Dress pattern from Mummykins and Me by Rebecca Page, I immediately thought of a modern, vintage 60’s top. With the inverted pleat on the front and the adorable (and very on-trend) peek-a-boo back feature, this pattern definitely has that vintage look I am so drawn to.
This Riley Blake Sailboat fabric from Raspberry Creek Fabrics was absolutely perfect for my French, beach side vision. Paired with black, calf-length leggings and super cute knot bow (free pattern from Oliver + S) for her hair, this top definitely invokes 60’s French fashion.
Details for the St. Tropez Top and Dress pattern:
- 2 different lengths – Above the knee dress or top
- Bias binding and french seams (no exposed seams 😀 )
- Inverted pleat detail in front
- Peek-a-boo, gathered detail in back
- Button or snap closure
- Sleeves or no sleeves
- Optional belt
- Available to girls’ and women’s sizes. Perfect for Mom and Me outfits 😉
Living on an Island, we have access to the beach any day of the week. Our chilly, rocky Pacific Northwest beaches may be a far cry from the luxuriously sandy beaches of Southern France, but it’ll do. Just imagine we’re in St. Tropez…. 😉
Yikes!… Too cold!
The St. Tropez is just as cute as a dress too. Just look at how sweet she looks in this adorable knee-length dress. I used Keepsake Calico quilting cotton in Metallic Birds on Mint from Joann’s for this one.
