Material

Primary fabric Use a very light-weight soft woven fabric or knit fabric with drape. Rayon challis, voile, batiste, georgette, charmeuse and jersey are great choices. Do not use quilting cotton or heavier weight fabrics.

Contrast Fabric A contrast fabric is used for the shoulder panels. You could use the same fabric as the primary fabric, or use a similar quality light-weight woven fabric. Rayon challis, voile, batiste, georgette, charmeuse and jersey are great choices. You could use a semi-transparent fabric to add interest.

Other Materials

  • 3.5 yards (320 cm) of purchased 1/4" (0.6 cm) ribbon, twill tape or cording can be used as drawstrings instead of making your own

Tools

  • A small safety pin
  • A 1/2" (12 mm) bias tape maker (optional) or a loop turner (optional)

Fabric Requirements

Most natural fibers shrink in the wash; be sure to have enough fabric. The requirements below assume that the fabric is already pre-shrunk. Do not use fabric narrower than 54" (135 cm) as the primary fabric; it is not wide enough to accommodate the pattern pieces.

    I made this with a drapy cotton jersey for the main body and Liberty London lawn for the shoulder panels. The instructions aren’t written for knits, but the woven shoulder panel I used helped to stabilize the sewing. It is one of the comfiest stylish tops I own, and I can’t wait to make more. I love the decorative contrast possibilities.

How to choose your size

  1. Compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table, choose the size that best fits your bust. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  2. Compare your waist circumference (narrowest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your waist. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  3. Compare your hip circumference (widest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that fits your hip best. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  4. It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip. The instructions for blending sizes are included in the pattern.
  5. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the garment. The instructions for lengthening or shortening are included in the pattern.
