The Wrap Around Top sewing pattern: designed to be snugly form fitting and supremely comfortable, while also offering support and versatility for every body shape and size. Is it magic? We certainly think so! This pattern provides all of this with some extra extras too!
This gorgeous Wrap Around is a short crop top, stopping a few centimeters under the bust. The “rest” of the top is formed by long, sweeping bands of fabric that snake around your waist and torso. Tie them as tight as you like, overlapping in a random fashion to create a sheath, tied off with bow. The flexibility and versatility of the long bands mean the top is suitable, and exquisitely comfortable, for maternity wear, during nursing, and every other day wear. A separate cami adds that extra bit of modesty for those who prefer it.
Dressing up in this beauty may count as your exercise for the day, with that wrapping, but it is certainly worth it!
