The Flora Top Sewing Pattern

SS56 Flora Top Sewing Pattern 2

With its geometric contrast yoke detail and stylishly simple shape, I AM Patterns’ Flora Top Sewing Pattern is a modern staple to dress up or down.  

The clothes we love to wear most are often the simplest; the effortless, easy-wear styles we can dress up or down. Luckily, they’re the most quick and satisfying to sew, too!

This issue’s Flora Top by I AM Patterns is a staple shift-style top with a twist; its unique contrast yoke detail means you can get creative with contrast colours, prints and textures. It’s a clever way to use your offcuts for an eco-friendly make, too!

The Flora Top is an exlcusive pattern from I AM Patterns. Find out more about their range over at

Our instructions will take you through key construction techniques, such as adding sleeves, facings and darts, for a project that’ll boost your wardrobe and your sewing skills. This is a pull-on top with no fiddly fastenings for a simple sew.
