This is our first new pattern for 2017 and it’s been long time coming with the other very large project I was working on last year! I am so pleased to be able to release this pattern as I have been wearing it for almost a year myself. I hope you will see how simple and easy is to make and wear.
The Julia Pocket Top
This is a relaxed shape with the wide, boxy garment body slimming into snug fitting sleeves to give a tapered silhouette.
Two different necklines
An open scooped neck and a wider cowl shape give alternatives and options for different fabrics. We have used a navy bamboo viscose single jersey and a loopbacked white cotton sweat-shirting.
Are incorporated into the horizontal seam providing additional detail and interest saving this top from being just another T shirt.
Here are just a few of the comments from our pattern testers…
“This is a great , simple sew which results in an easy to wear top. The optional cowl neck and pocket detail make it more than just a basic item of clothing.” Lisa
“Very easy to put together, did this in an afternoon. Never sewn with stretch fabrics but this was a breeze to put together. Would recommend for beginners.” Lyn
“A lovely simple pattern for a casual, boxy top, with very clear instructions and quick to make. A pleasure to make and will definitely be making again.” Amy
“I love this top and cant wait to make another. I used a fairly light weight jersey and plan on making another with a heavier weight or sweatshirt fabric as I think this would work really welll. The instructions are easy to follow and the top only took an afternoon to make.” Claire
” The Julia is a lovely, relaxed top to make and to wear. It is a great way to safely explore using a stretch fabric and create a stylish, informal and flattering garment. I really enjoyed making the top and will be stocking up on knits and jerseys and sweatshirt materials to make a few more!” Ellie
