This elegant and loose-fitting top with a tie neck and gathered sleeves is easy to make and great for work or evening wear.

We're sorry but this pattern is no longer available. You can find lots of inspiration over on the designer's website www.sewgirl.co.uk

Please note the following amendments to the pattern:

Use a 1cm seam allowance unless otherwise stated

  • Use medium-weight fabric with drape. For day wear: linen, cotton lawn, chambray or viscose.
  • For evening wear: Crepe de chine, satin, peachskin
  • Before sewing the shoulder seams of the front and back bodices, join the two back pieces with a 1cm seam allowance.
  • Make 1.5m 25mm-wide strip of bias binding from smaller strips of main fabric for the neck edging and ties (make your own bias binding using a 25mm bias tape maker)
