This sheer top is SO easy to wear and SO easy to make. It is literally just 2 pieces of fabric sewn together. Perfect for beginners or anyone who loves the current batwing trend out there. Batwing top free sewing pattern

The fabric is was cheap, cheap, cheap! Bought from the blue cross sale from the Shuttle in Shipley, it was about £2 / metre I think. You just have to buy a minimum amount of 3 metres.

It is edged at the cuffs with a thin band of neon orange trim which makes something that could be a bit bog standard into something special and a bit funky. All the edges are created with a tiny turned over hem. Don’t forget to Stay Stitch your curved neckline!

This pattern takes 1.75 metres of fabric (standard 150cm / 60inch width).

All my free sewing patterns are made to fit a UK size 12, but can be easily adjusted at key points to go larger or smaller. Have a look at the Making a pattern fit page for how to do it.
