This simple pattern involves a neckline binding with bias tape and double folded hems. A serger is recommended for finishing the shoulder and side seams, but a zig zag stitch or pinking shears will also work to keep the seam allowances from fraying.
The Made by Women Patterns are part of an initiative to involve women with the process of garment making as a way to be mindful of our purchasing practices in the fashion industry. Behind every seam is a person, most likely a woman. Sewing a simple top is a tactile way of understanding the effort that goes into the clothes we wear and our responsibility to respect the human and material output with each piece. #madebywomenpatterns
Proceeds from this pattern go toward the Made by Women Fund, supporting makers through skill development, proper equipment, and education so their businesses can flourish.
Lightweight, woven fabric with good drape such as linen (5 oz), gauze, tencel, cotton voile, or crepe de chine, silk noil, or rayon challis. Pictured with our fair trade, organic double gauze in images 5-7
The Home Top pattern is ideal as an introductory level into garment making. It is preferable to have some previous experience with using a sewing machine. The most difficult part is the neckline binding, and the illustrations will walk you through this skill.
This pattern is for personal use only. If you would like to make and sell this top, we would love to support you and your business! Contact us for commercial licensing options.
