This isn’t your regular kind of cross over dress sewing pattern! Just as magical as the Wrap Around Top, and with a few extra options thrown in, the Chrissy Cross Over, like most of the RP patterns, is all about comfort and style.
The cross over is a top AND a dress and the picture-perfect garment for pregnancy, nursing, and non-maternity wear. With the front pieces crossing just under the bust, and creating the “cross over” bit, a separate optional cami adds that extra bit of modesty for those who prefer it.
Skill Level – Beginner
Sizes – Pattern includes ladies’ sizes XXS to 5XL. See the size chart in the gallery above.
Options – Three different sleeve lengths (short, three quarter, and long), three different lengths (top, knee, and midi), gathered or smooth sides, optional cami for personal preference, nursing, or modesty, and optional binding or fold over elastic (FOE) finishings for cami straps. Use the gathered front option for pregnancy.
Fabrics – Suitable for stretchy knit fabrics of any weight. You will achieve best results with a medium weight such as jersey, double brushed poly (DBP), cotton lycra (CL) and French terry. See the fabric requirements in the gallery above for yardage. A serger/ overlocker is optional but NOT required.
Format – This trim-free pattern is a downloadable PDF and comes in A4 or US letter printable sizes. An A0 format (pattern pieces only) is also included should you wish to have your pattern printed professionally. PDF Layers allow you to select and print only the size/s you want.
