Your Bronte Tops...

Today I wanted to showcase a few of the amazing Bronte Tops I've seen popping up lately. It's so exciting every time I see a new one out in the world!

Sue from Fadanista kind of blew my mind with her first Bronte top, in which she put the front overlap on top of the back overlap (it's designed to go the other way...) and wow, how cool does it look! Can I just say that doing it this way had honestly never crossed my mind, but now...


She also made a cute green spotty short sleeved version for fabric shopping in during her travels (me, jealous? Nope, not me...*cough*).


Heather over at Handmade by Heather B has made a gorgeous blue spotty version with some bonus fitting info for hollow chests and forward shoulders!



Tanya from Mrs. Hughes has made two versions, a gorgeous green and black stripe and a nautical stripe...




This Bronte dress from Gillian has me dreaming of a Bronte-Skater dress, what do you think?



I've fallen in love with the polka dot binding Tialys used on her Bronte...

Kirsten from Fifty Two Fancies made up both versions of Bronte - loving the gingham buttons!



Nicole from Sartorial Sewing has made a sleeveless Bronte! And she's hopefully going to post a tutorial on just how she went about it - can't wait!


Ela has made a Bronte from some absolutely gorgeous fabric, and the buttons she used for the neckline were found in an old shed in the Ukraine - I just love little details like that.



There are heaps more out there and you can either peruse the pinterest board for inspiration or add your own Bronte top to the Flickr group here.

  2. What a great roundup! I found a couple new-to-me blogs to follow, and that's always a win. Nice to see how versatile the pattern in, and see how differently people have styled it!

    1. I totally agree! I also really enjoy reading about the changes people made to the pattern to make it fit them, it means that other people who may be similar shapes can see what might work for them :)
