Josephine features pin-tuck pleats on the front for a sophisticated, feminine look. The pattern comes in 3 variations - I can't wait to sew them all! For my first go, I made the sleeveless variation which also features front and side vents.Pattern: Josephine by Made by RaeFabric: La Venta voile print, 1 3/4 ydsSize and style made: view c, small with A-B cupAlterations: none
One of my favorite things about this pattern is two cup-options. Each size can be made in A-B or C-D cup. Brilliant! So many patterns tend to be loose on me in the chest, so it was awesome to try the smaller cup size option. I love the fit! The pattern was easy to sew up and Rae has helpful tips, tricks and tutorials throughout the pattern for those new to garment sewing. If you're more confident with garment construction, you can breeze though this top in just a few hours.
Josephine is currently only available as a digital pdf pattern here, but we have our fingers crossed we'll be carrying it in print version soon. I know I'm going to be making more of these and I'm excited to explore the variations - nice work, Rae!
