Sometimes you just want pretty, comfy and simple tops to make in a soft cotton, voile, chiffon or silk. You could even try these easy styles in a lightweight T-shirt fabric. Semi-fitted unlined tops feature gathered scoop necklines and finish just below the hips. Cap-sleeve Top has self bound neckline and sleeves and an applied drawstring at raised waist. 3/4 sleeve Top has shaped neckband, Raglan sleeves and narrow elasticated cuffs. Wear the cap-sleeve Top with some funky jeans and a neat fitted jacket, or try the 3/4 sleeve Top to soften a strict Pants or Skirt Suit.
All sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26 need around 1 1/2 yards for the short sleeved top and around 2 yards for the 3/4 sleeved top. Each top also needs 1/4 yard of interfacing plus 1 yard of 1/2” / 13 mm wide elastic.
All yardages are for 60” / 150 cm wide fabric.
