CUFF TOP PATTERN

29 reviews
Skill level: Very easy
OUR MOST LOVED PATTERN

Easy and satisfying to make yet elegant, the Cuff Top is our most loved pattern and almost addictive to make. It has a straight fit and cap sleeves with wide elastic cuffs. The smaller size range comes with a boat neck and the larger size range has a keyhole opening with button at back.

The blue top is styled together with our Almost long trousers and the green top is combined with our Three pleat skirt and Apron dress.

Model is 170 cm tall and wearing a size S.

Cuff Top

Purchased the PDF format, which was easy to print and assemble. Very clear instructions. I found the TAL Facebook group really good for getting hints to assist with the make.

  • Any tips or advice to other makers? Sew the elastic cuff in, a quarter at time to help get even spacing.

Top of my dreams!

This was the first top i just HAD to make when i first started sewing a year ago and i was so happy to finally make it recently. It was a straight forward make and I cannot wait to make it in another fabric to show off the beautiful topstitching details which weren’t apparent in the linen gauze that i used.

  • Any tips or advice to other makers? Although it is a beginner friendly pattern, i think a complete beginner would struggle with adding the elastic to the sleeves. I would suggest thinking of it as adding binding to knit fabric and there are lots of videos online on how to do that.
