Supplies
Fabric - Suitable fabrics are light to medium-weight woven fabrics (e.g. 100% cotton, cotton blend, linen, taffeta, chiffon, georgette, or rayon) or knit/stretch fabrics (e.g. jersey). Make sure when you are picking your fabric to consider the type of look you'd like and how much drape your fabric has. If the fabric is stiffer (e.g. cotton or linen), the finished look of the garment will be boxier, oversized, and more structured. A fabric that has drape will hang in folds and swing when you move, limiting the oversized appearance. Olivia doesn't sit off the shoulders, but also not quite on. This allows the armhole to be comfortably fitted without being loose, as you might expect from an oversized top. So, try different fabrics and enjoy a closet full of comfortable, beautiful tops with lots of different looks.
You will also need:
  • Elastic - use 1/2 inch wide elastic for the neckline and optional 1/4 inch elastic for the sleeves. You will need approximately 1-4 yards for all sizes depending on sleeve option and size.
  • OPTIONAL - Any trim or ribbon you would like to use. You can use any width and type of ribbon you like but for the exact look in the photos we used 1 inch wide satin ribbon, and some ric rac. You will need 2-3 yards of ribbon for all sizes.
  • Thread to match fabric and any trim.
Tools
  • Sewing machine
  • Pens
  • Scissors
  • Tape Measure or Ruler
  • Serger/overlocker optional but not required.

“It is such a quick sew and looks so cute and flattering! I love that this garment serves as a blank canvas of sorts and can be embellished in so many different ways.”
