Suggested fabrics:

Knit version: Knit fabrics with at least 20% 4-way stretch are suitable. Cotton jersey, rib knits and lightweight french terry would be great. Generally, sturdier knits are easier to work with and drapier, thinner knits are a little more difficult.

Woven version: Woven fabrics including linen, cotton, rayon and silk. The fabric you choose will affect how your top looks. If you choose a drapey fabric like a rayon or silk you will have more of a blouse-y look. If you choose something like linen it will have a more structured vibe.

Fabric requirements: 45" (1.2 m) wide fabric: 1.33 - 1.88 yd (1.2 - 1.7 m) // 54-60" (1.4-1.5 m) wide fabric: 1 - 1.88 yd (0.9 - 1.7 m).

Sizing: XS - 7X (approx. UK 6 - 34) with A/B and C/D cups. Please check the size chart and finished garment measurements. The pattern was drafted for a height of 5'6".

Notions: Matching thread; 1/2 yd (0.5 m) of lightweight fusible interfacing (if making the knit version, use knit fusible interfacing); stretch or ballpoint needle if making the knit version.

PDF pattern includes: Instructions; print-at-home patterns (for knits and wovens and A/B and C/D cups, 16 pages for each fabric/cup combination); A0 copy shop pattern (3 sheets).

Easy but interesting

This is a toile made from brushed cotton pillow cases.  So you can see that it doesn’t need much fabric.  Sadly I messed up the position of the lines so they aren’t symmetrical - some days I can stand wearing it in public, others I can’t!

i was experimenting with the size and bust cups and also width and depth of the neckline.  I think I want it a bit higher next time, but it’s not bad for a first version.
the instructions are very clear and encouraging, so the end result looks neat.  It would be easy to change the shape or length of the top for different fabrics or turn it into a dress or jumpsuit too.

i haven’t seen many versions in knits so that’s also on the To Do list.

Simple make you can easily Hack

This is such a versatile pattern. Ideal for beginners.

Newly updated with an options for both woven and knits in extended cup sizes too!

I bought this beautiful fabric that I really wanted to do justice and this pattern was perfect.
