Introducing the Piper Top
Say hello to our newest pattern, the Piper Top! The Piper Top is a modern funnel neck knit top. It's just as easy to sew and wear as a t-shirt, but thanks to the funnel neck, it's slightly elevated in style. Inspired by tops of the 1960's, Piper has a folded short funnel neck, set-in sleeves, and an hourglass shape that's meant to follow, but not cling to, the curves of the body.
Choose between View A with short sleeves that hit halfway between the shoulder and elbow, or View B with 3/4-length sleeves that land above the wrist.
The Piper Top is part of the Christine Haynes Patterns Chop Chop collection, which are quick and easy to sew projects that are only available in PDF format. Unlike the main collection, the Chop Chop collection uses full color photographs for the step by step instructions, and illustrates the garments on dress forms instead of a figure. Otherwise they are the same quality patterns as the main collection.
Like all our patterns, the Piper Top pattern is sized from 0–18 and all sizes are included in the PDF. Perfect for absolute beginners, or those new to sewing with knits, this pattern's difficulty is rated at only "one spool"! This is by far the easiest pattern we've released, but because it's so chic, it doesn't look "beginner" at all.
The best fabrics for the Piper Top are medium weight knit fabrics like ponte, cotton knits, cotton & spandex blend knits, scuba knits.
We hope you love the Piper Top as much as we do!
