The Drape Top

The Drape Top sewing pattern

Sew a sleeveless tee for your everyday wardrobe with The Drape Top sewing pattern, a versatile scoop neck detail tee made in cotton jersey for comfort and ease.

After months of living in chunky knits, we can’t wait to get our spring clothes out of storage – and add to our collection with some stylish new me-mades too, of course! First on our list is this issue’s Drape Top by Rosee Woodland, an update on a classic tee with an elegant self-faced cowl neck and simple silhouette. It’s a speedy make designed for stretch fabrics and can be sewn up on your sewing machine – so no overlocker required.

Now, excuse us while we head to the fabric shop to browse the jerseys – we’ve got spring sewing to do! Show us your spring style tagged #simplysewingmag
