Buy the Vetiver Top sewing pattern from French Navy. The Vetiver Top is a short-sleeved blouse with two hem options. Both styles feature a round neckline, narrow button stand and a bodice that is gently shaped by princess seams. The resulting silhouette is comfortable yet feminine and can be dressed up or down depending on your fabric choice. Style A has a ruffled hem that ends approximately 3 cm (1 1/8″) below the navel and is perfectly paired with high-waisted pants or shorts. Style B is longer in length and has a standard hem that can be tucked in or left out depending on your preference.

Note: A pattern expansion (sold separately) is available for the Vetiver Top. Use the Vetiver Top Pattern Expansion to add long sleeves and/or a Peter Pan collar to your Vetiver Top.
