Here’s my latest Valerie Top Pattern. This sleeveless top pattern is loose and comfortable, ideal for a cool summer top. The side gathered darts, featured on both the front and back, provide the perfect detail to set this top apart from your average tank. The pattern is suited to soft fabrics with weight and drape e.g. silk crepe de chine, rayon, double georgette and silk/cotton voiles. Blogged here
