Pattern Description:

Designed for softly draping knit fabrics, this blouse is easy to make, flattering, cool and strappy, with tummy covering draping and a rounded hemline in the front. And I've made it with wide enough straps that you should be able to wear a bra with only minimal straps peaking through at the back. Or don't wear a bra and let it all hang out this summer!

The Summer Drape Top comes in a one-size fits most design. The pattern is free to download and can be made from less than one yard of fabric. Great for a beach cover up too, over a bikini top.

Download includes the digital PDF pattern pieces and PDF instructions. To preview the full step by step photo tutorial on how to make up the pattern and how to cut the fabric and sew your top, you can also visit my blog at
