Sewing pattern description

This is an oversized top made using Zero Waste Pattern Cutting. It has a dropped shoulder and comes with 2 sleeve options, a gathered and twisted double layer sleeve, or a long sleeve with a gathered and elasticated wrist. The front has side bust darts for shaping. The neckline is a minimal crew neck finished with a back bind and a split with loop and button at the centre back to close.

This pattern also comes with 2 hack options, a sleeveless top with darts on the shoulder for shaping and a dress with V-neck front, side pockets and gathered skirt. All pattern options in this book are easily mixed and matched.

Method: This zero waste pattern is a downloadable PDF Instruction booklet. It is designed to be drawn directly onto your fabric by using small templates which you can make yourself, or print easily on a home printer. You draw your garment pieces directly onto your fabric by following the step by step instructions. Pieces are broken up into simple blocks which can be modified easily to change lengths, add/remove different design elements and accommodate changing fabric widths.

Fabric recommendations:

This style works beautifully in a woven fabric, approximately 80-160gsm in a light weight linen, cotton, silk or viscose. The twisted sleeve with gathers into the armhole can become quite bulky if the fabric is too this so be mindful of this when choosing something.

This pattern also uses a contrast fabric for the back binding
