Notch Top & Dress
This is a PDF sewing pattern and tutorial to teach you how to create these garments. YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE ANYTHING IN THE MAIL.
The Notch Top & Dress is a super versatile pattern with a flattering fit. You can choose from several necklines on both front and back pieces. The higher notch neckline and plain neckline is an open, scoop style you can easily pair a “normal” bra with. Both back necklines, high and low can also accommodate most everyday bras. The low notch neckline makes for a wonderful swim or bralette type as well. The tutorial will walk you through how to add support for going braless with this style as well. So you can create a bralette crop, swim top, rash guard, sports bra. sleep top, or dress that will support you without anything under… and that is super comfortable. The bodice and waistband are a tight fit, but both are lined for a little more coverage. The skirt flares out for a great little twirl and flirty feeling. Don’t forget those pockets either 😉
You’ll be able to make a Notch Top & Dress year round with the sleeve options included from tank to long sleeves. Grab a different fabric and get a completely different feeling top. Athletic can make a great workout top. Swim knit can make a great tankini top or rash guard. Everyday knits like waffle, sweater, ribbed knits can make a cute everyday crop or dress. Cotton, modal, bamboo spandex blends make a great breathable dress or crop. Why not grab a fun luxurious stretch velvet for a dress or crop option that is cozy and fun.
