THE SQUARE NECK TOP • Pattern
By FRIDAY PATTERN CO, the Square Neck Top is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: The Square Neck Top is a boxy dolman sleeved top with a square neckline. It is slightly cropped. It is a great beginner sewing pattern and includes pattern pieces to make the top from a knit or woven fabric!
The model wearing the white top is wearing a size XXL woven version in the A/B cup size. Her measurements placed her between sizes so we sized up for a looser fit. The fabric is a knit with less than 20% stretch so we opted for the woven pattern. She is 5'5" tall.
The model in the yellow top is wearing a size 4X knit version in the C/D cup size. Her measurements place her at exactly a 4X. She is 6' tall. The top length was not modified.
The model in the blue top is wearing a size small woven version in the C/D cup size. Her bust measurements place her in a medium and her waist and hips are in the small range. She is 5'6" tall.
Fabric Suggestions: KNIT VERSION: Knit fabrics with at least 20% 4-way stretch are suitable. Cotton jersey, rib knits, lightweight french terry are a few types of fabric that would be great. Generally, sturdier knits are easier to work with and drapier thinner knits are a little more difficult.
WOVEN VERSION: The woven Square Neck top looks great in linen, cotton, rayon, silk, etc! The fabric you choose will affect how your top looks. If you choose a drapey fabric like a rayon or silk you will have more of a blouse-y look. If you choose something like linen it will have a more structured vibe.
Trims required: Matching thread,1/2 yard (.5 metres) lightweight fusible interfacing, stretch or ballpoint needle if making the knit version.
Skill Level: Suitable for a beginner skill level.
Seam allowances are included in the pattern.
The paper pattern is printed on tissue paper, comes packaged in an envelope and includes highly detailed fully illustrated instructions.
