Material

Primary fabric Medium weight four-way or two-way stretch knit with great recovery and good drape, such as jersey, interlock, sweater knit and rib knit, is suitable. Note that without good drape the top may gape at the cut outs. Ideal stretch is at least 40% (able to stretch fabric from 4" to 5 5⁄8").

Contrast fabric Light to medium weight woven fabric with or without stretch, such as shirting, twill, sateen, seersucker, crepe de chine and charmeuse, is suitable. Avoid using feather weight fabric as the fabric may creep up when you move. Also avoid heavy woven fabric.

Essential Material/Tool

  • Ball-point or stretch machine needles for primary (knit) fabric; when sewing the contrast (woven) or combined fabrics, you can use a universal needle
  • 40" (102 cm) of 1⁄4"(0.6 cm)-wide clear elastic, fusible bias tape or bi-stretch interfacing to stabilize cut outs

Optional Tools

  • 1/8" size rolled hemmer foot for your sewing machine
  • Walking foot for your sewing machine
  • Serger machine
  • Cover stitch machine to finish your hems
  • Twin needles to finish your hems
  • Wooley nylon threads to finish your hems

Fabric Requirements

Most natural fiber shrinks in the wash, be sure to get enough fabric. The requirements below assume that the fabric is already pre-shrunk.

    A unique design with a lot of style options. Great way to use some smaller cuts of fabric. The knit overlay can be made with a light sweater knit making this a piece to transition from season to season. Plus Kennis shows how to hack this into a cute raglan top – she used a sweatshirt knit.

    Great pattern, very versatile

    The Paulina Top is one of my all time favourites! I love that I can use up bits of my favourite wovens and mix them up with soft knits to make a comfortable yet fashion forward wardrobe staple! Beautifully drafted with great finishing tips.

    I love this pattern that I had the privilege to test for Kennis. Not only is it very fashionable, but it is sooo comfortable. I have made 2 of these tops and always get so many compliments when I wear them – no one believes I made them. The instructions are very thorough and extremely easy to follow. One comment, there is plenty of ease in the hip area so be careful not to go up in hip size before testing your hip measurement with the actual pattern piece. Try this pattern – you won’t be sorry!

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.
