Ruffle sleeve top pattern
This pattern was made in collaboration with Peppermint Magazine for Issue 37 of the magazine.
Pattern is available for free download.
The Ruffle Sleeve Top is a simple woven shirt with a v-neck, bust darts, elbow length sleeve with ruffle and a neck facing. It has a boxy fit and is the perfect piece to take you from day to evening. It slips over the head and therefore does not have a closure.
This pattern is suitable for advanced beginners and beyond.
By working through this pattern, you will gain confidence in:
Sewing a facing
Setting in sleeves
Sewing french seams
The Ruffle Sleeve Top is compatible with a range of different fabrics. Consider using light to mid-weight fabrics such as: linen, linen blends, cotton, gauze or chambray.
For a softer silhouette, consider sateen, silk or viscose (rayon). Be careful if you are a beginner though, as these fabrics are a little trickier to sew. Softer fabrics will drape over the bust, while stiffer fabrics will create a more voluminous and structured silhouette. If using a sheer fabric, consider binding the neckline rather than using the facing, as the facing will show through.
The pattern is available in 10 sizes (A - J) and is nested, to make it easier for you to grade between sizes.
