Pattern Description:

New Year, new you they say! I've just taken up Yoga and wanted to sew some simple exercise wear, and in so doing not only did I create a great fitted top for wearing to the gym, but also a great top to wear everyday. Make it a size smaller for a fitted finish for exercise wear, as the red version above, or make the next size up for a looser fit for wearing to work - see the print version below. Looks great under a jacket. Enjoy this free gathered front top pattern.

Easy to sew sleeveless top with princess seams front and back and a gathered front bodice on one side. Front panel is reversible so you can choose to have the gathers on either side, or make one of each! Sewn using an easy turn and sew method, suitable for beginners. For stretch knit fabrics only.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Bust size 34 to 42 inches

Materials:

  • Fabric and matching thread
  • Printer for the pattern
  • Sewing machine
