When you want a fun T-shirt or blouse, go for these
flirty styles, perfect for lightweight drape-y fabrics...
choose knits like silk(y) jersey, burnout velvets, or
linen T-shirting, or try wovens like chambray, georgette,
charmeuse, lace, crepe, voile or gauze.
Relaxed-fit, pull-on Princess-seamed T or blouse has
a scooped neck with a wrap-over back. Knits have a
bound neck; wovens have the same bound neckline
or a facing. Choose a ruffled cap sleeve or a full 3/4
length sleeve with elastic cuff. Hem & back wrap edges
are finished with a drape-y flounce (wrong side of the
flounce will show); finish the flounce with a narrow hem
or leave it raw for a cool edgy look.
These are fabulous styles to cheer up a simple jean,
pant or skirt; they make great low-key party tops in
embroidered fabrics or sparkly knits; and they slide
under your jackets, hoodies or cardigans beautifully...
All sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26 for the cap sleeve
version will need around 2 1/4 yardsor 206 cm fabric; for the
3/4 length sleeve version you’ll need around 2 3/4 yards or 252 cm fabric.
Add enough 1/2” or 1.25 cm wide elastic to comfortably circle your
wrist twice; if you’d like to use the front & back neckline facings,
you’ll need a scrap of interfacing for those too.
All fabric allowances are for 60” or 150cm wide fabrics.
I MADE THIS TOP AND IT IS CUTE, HOWEVER I FOUND THE BACK DID NOT STAY TOGETHER, AND IT IS NOT FOR ME. I WILL WEAR IT UNDER A SWEATER BUT MAYBE NOT ON ITS OWN. MY BODY FAULT NOT THE PATTERN
