Marsha Style Cortney Top and Dress
£9.50 – £16.50
Buy the Cortney Top and Dress sewing pattern from Marsha Style. It has all that puff sleeve goodness we are loving right now. The pattern comes with two sleeve options, one with pleats at the sleeve head and the other with no pleats or gathers at the sleeve head. The sleeve is designed to be off the shoulder and may require an adjustment if you prefer your sleeve to sit on the shoulder. The sleeve opening is voluminous and finished with an elastic casing. Cortney has a band collar and a wide, long front placket that can be buttoned closed or worn open to create a deep V.
Both the top and dress are oversized and voluminous. It is recommended to check the finished measurement chart when deciding what size to make in case you prefer a neater fit. The top can be worn out or tucked in. The dress can be cinched in at the waist with a waist tie if desired. And of course there are pockets!
