RiFFs from Cake Patterns are thoughtfully drafted patterns with minimalist instructions and packaging- it's all about the drafting! Cake "grid-guides" for sizing uses logic and your own raw measurements at the front waist, full bust and hip measurements so each top will have a fully customized fit! RiFF patterns feature the same intuitive sizing and sewing as other Cake Patterns, without the extra instructions illustrations. The Bonny Knit Sailor top features a perfectly proportioned sailor collar, cap sleeves, princess seams and a hem band. Use the optional ribbon and button placement guides for a ship-shape nautical inspired summer top. The flattering square neckline modernizes this classic design and makes it a flattering, unexpected choice for women. The collar is finished with a simple, light, durable method often found in RTW polo shirts. Without the collar, the Bonny Top makes a great wardrobe basic- a neck binding piece and instructions for creating a plain Bonny are included in the pattern. The princess seams at the front allow for greater fit customization, making Bonny a thoroughly wearable and re-make-able top! *****Note: this is an electronic pattern, available for immediate download.
