Edie Top Pattern

$ 21.50


The balloon sleeves of this simple top and dress are the only detail that it requires to stand out. Less is more. The full sleeves are gathered with a tie which is threaded through a buttonhole, alternatively you can omit this buttonhole and insert elastic instead.

Skill level: Intermediate

This is a paper pattern that includes sizes UK 6 – 18 or 18-28. All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless otherwise stated.

Suitable fabrics

We would suggest using the following fabrics – lighter weight woven fabrics, linen and linen blends, poplin, hemp and hemp blends, cotton chambray, Indian handweaves and block prints, tencel and tencel blends. The more structured the fabric the more sculptural your top will look.
