drape drape vol 2, no 4, drape top

Draped top from the Japanese pattern book “drape drape 2”. I bought “drape drape 1” almost a year ago, and I haven’t made much from it, but this is something different, the patterns just suit me better!

The grey top is made according to the pattern as it came from the book, the striped one has a slightly altered neckline (it’s not so deep). The pattern is almost rediculously easy to sew!

They are both seductively comfortable to wear. I want to wear them all the time…

Material Notes

The grey jersey is cotton, a remnant I bough ages ago and cherish, the striped one is a viscose/lycra blend.

    I’m really tempted to buy this book now. From the original pictures I thought everything was a bit to sculpted, but your tops and dress look so wearable that I want to make some too.

    They look so stylish and comfortable – perfect to dress up or down.

    Both of the fabrics are great! I’ve been looking for more draped tops, and I think you’re brave to be sewing so much jersey. It just frustrates me! The striped one is my fave.

      Thanks! I have to reveal the trick: I have a really good overlocker (serger), so sewing in jersey is a piece of cake. But I did use to sew quite a bit before I got it too, I think it’s largely about having a sewing machine that can handle it. My Pfaff Select 3.0 could. Oh, the trick of stretching the seams as you sew jersey without an overlocker, I never got that! I always tried hard NOT to, the seams ended up all wonky if I did. I chose a stretchy seam instead.
      I hope you become friends with jersey, I love sewing in it!

      Well that’s my problem: not a good overlock and a machine that really CAN’T handle jersey. I thought all home machines were like that, my silly assumption! When I get a new machine, I’ll make sure to get a Pfaff or a higher grade so jersey and I can be friends. I love wearing it! Thanks for the secrets! :)
