Staley Top - Digital Sewing Pattern
The Staley Top comes with two options, perfect for layering together. View A is a cropped jumper, featuring a split hem detail that is slightly longer at the back. View B is a semi fitted t-shirt with a scooped neckline and a curved hem.
The armscye and sleeve head are the same for both views, which makes it easy to mix and match pattern pieces if you’d prefer View A with short sleeves or View B with long sleeves.
Both views come with two cup size options - B cup and a combined C/D cup.
This pattern is for knit fabric, not suitable for woven fabric.
Suitable for advanced beginners and above.
Light to medium weight knit fabrics with atleast 30% stretch widthwise.
View A: Ribbing can be used on the neck binding, cuffs and hem bands if desired, but the main fabric is also great for these sections.
Choose a lightweight, stretchy knit for a slouchy and relaxed fit, or choose a structured knit for a neater fit.
*** Fabric choice will play a big part in how the garment fits. The stretchier/less sturdy your knit is, the slouchier the fit will be. The photos show how it will look in an unstructured knit. The neckline looks wider and deeper than it would in a more structured knit.
