The latest release in my range of free sewing patterns and tutorials – the Summer Drape Top.
Designed for softly draping knit fabrics, this blouse is easy to make, flattering, cool and strappy, with tummy covering draping and a rounded hemline in the front. And I’ve made it with wide enough straps that you should be able to wear a bra with only minimal straps peaking through at the back,if at all. Or don’t wear a bra and let it all hang out this summer!
The Summer Drape Top comes in a one-size fits most design. The pattern is free to download and can be made from less than one yard of fabric. Great for a beach cover up too, over a bikini top, or you could even extend it into a dress.
I have used knit fabrics and I suggest you start here first. But this is a loose fitting pull over blouse and might also suit the right soft and draping woven too.
