Tilly and the Buttons Sewing Pattern - Agnes
Sew your own jersey tops on a regular sewing machine - no overlocker or serger needed! Agnes is a close-fitting top finished with a narrow neckband. Irresistibly wearable and endlessly versatile, make it with long or cropped sleeves, plain or ruched at the shoulder, and scoop neckline or ruched sweetheart neckline. Agnes is a wardrobe staple you'll make again and again!
Fabric suggestions: Light- to medium-weight stretch knit fabrics, such as jersey, french terry or wool jersey. Check that the fabric can be stretched crosswise at least 25% wider than its original width.
