Basic Skills Necessary:

  • *I love using my serger and cover stitch for all knit construction. If you don't have a serger, suitable stitches are: zig zag or overlock (remember no back stitching when using an overlock!) When using a straight stitch, increase length to allow for stretch.
  • *Remember the stretch of the fabric always goes around the body.

Pattern Description:

This is a PDF pattern for instant download for this beautiful WOMEN's size top. THIS IS NOT A FINISHED GARMENT, it is for the pattern that show you and teach you step by step how to sew it!

This pattern comes in Women's sizes XXS-XXXL. Sizing chart above. The Ella knit top is a fun tank with many options. High or low back, ruffle or no ruffle, bow or banded back! The flowly style compliments your figure, whether a size 4 or 24! The low back is a flirty and perfect for wearing with a tank under. Or choose the high back option, which hits right above the bra line for more coverage. There are only 2 pattern pieces to print. The computer digitized, color coded, 'no trim' pages are QUICK to put together! Measurements are given to cut ruffle and bindings. Detailed, precise instructions with full color photos to teach and guide you along the way are perfect for beginners. Yardage requirements, tips, tricks and more are included!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:



  • *Fabric: I prefer a lighter weight knit for this top, especially the ruffle. When you use a light, silky, drapey knit the ruffle falls beautifully. A rayon jersey, featherweight jersey, or even burn out jersey would be great. If you aren't comfortable with knits, you can use a more stable knit as well: cotton jersey, cotton interlock.
  • *About 1 yard of ribbon, in whatever width you prefer. I like to use 1"-2"satin. You could also use a woven bias tape, make woven straps or use knit binding
  • *1/2" hem tape highly suggested
  • *Ball point, stretch, or jersey needle
  • *Basics: thread, scissors, ruler, rotary cutter, hem gauge.
