Pattern Description

Each panel has been engineered to create the drape and fall of this interesting style. Mid length front and longer back along with the extended shoulder line completes this avant-garde look. This pattern is a clever design but is also an easy make.

Along with the sleeve cuff, the design lines on this top give it a point of difference that is very on trend. The back yoke creates a flattering silhouette that is easy to wear. Combine woven with knit or two different textures or colours to give you your own individual style.

This pattern is available in two sizes Australian/UK 4-16 and 18-30. Please check your size using the size charts below.

Suitable fabrics

Crepe, silk, washed linen or linen mix, even a knit or any fabric with drape.

 

How Do I Know What Size I Am?

Choosing your pattern size is the most important step and we will help you determine this with these easy to follow steps.

  1. When taking your measurements ensure that you take them against your skin and not over clothing. One can wear a comfortable bra and knickers whilst measuring, as this will provide you with the most accurate measurements.
  2. Tape measure has to sit firmly around the points you are measuring. But be careful not to pull it too tight, as this will give you the incorrect size.
  3. When measuring circumferences (B, C, D, E) it is important to note that the tape measure must remain parallel to the floor. It is sometimes best to take the measurements in front of a mirror; this will help you see the angle of the tape measure.
  4. You will only require the basic body measurements to determine your pattern size which is indicated on our mannequin below:
A. Shoulder Breadth

Place the tape at the edge of the shoulder. Measure along the top of the shoulder blade/across the highest point of the shoulders to the other edge, following the natural slope and allow an extra finger for ease of any movement.

B. Upper Arm Girth

This point is taken as a circumference at your widest point of your upper arm.

C. Bust

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the fullest part of your chest.

D. Waist

This point is taken as a circumference and taken at the smallest part of your waist.

E. Hip

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the widest part of your hips.
