Buy the Piper Top sewing pattern from Christine Haynes. The Piper Top is a modern funnel neck knit top. As easy to sew and wear as a t-shirt, but slightly elevated in style. Inspired by tops of the 1960s, Piper has a funnel neck that you can choose to wear folded or raised as a high turtleneck, set-in sleeves, and an hourglass shape meant to follow but not cling to the curves of the body. Choose between a short sleeve that hits halfway between the shoulder and elbow, or a 3/4-length sleeve that lands above the wrist.

This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

– PDF (available to download immediately after purchase). What is a PDF?

– PDF pattern + Printed A0 copy shop (We print out the A0 pattern sheets, but you’ll need to download the digital instructions, as we don’t print these. The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). What is Copy Shop?

Suggested fabrics: Medium weight 2-way or 4-way stretch knits with at least 2% elastic content, such as ponte, and cotton spandex blends. If planning to leave the funnel neck unfolded, slightly heavier knits like French terry can be used.

Fabric requirements: Fabric requirements assume the greatest stretch is from selvedge to selvedge, with non-directional fabric. Extra fabric may be required for fabric with the greatest stretch from cut end to cut end. Additional fabric may also be required for nap, one-way design, shading, matching design, or shrinkage. Knit fabrics tend to shrink more than woven fabrics, so allow for that when purchasing yardage.
