Buy the Dawson Top sewing pattern from Helen’s Closet. The Dawson Top is designed to be a workhorse in your wardrobe. Three necklines and three sleeve lengths make nine total combinations of this design. You can sew a Dawson Top for all seasons and countless different styling opportunities. Dawson is perfect as a layering top under overalls, dresses, and pinafores. It also looks great paired with your favourite jeans or leggings. Make Dawson in merino wool for a cosy base layer, or try it in bamboo jersey for a soft and comfy tee. The mock neck view is excellent in a rib knit or sweater knit and can easily be dressed up for office or semi-formal attire. Dawson is quick, easy, and does not require a lot of fabric. This beginner-friendly pattern is one you will surely use again and again!
