Pattern Details

This chic ladies swing top pattern comes in top or dress length. It’s got a cute little cut out in the back, optional sleeves and an optional belt. Go for the sleeveless version for a great summer staple in light weight woven such as cotton, viscose or chiffon. Or go for a medium weight knit for a cute all-weather top you can layer. Super versatile and really flattering for all sizes.

All the raw edges are hidden so the garment is as beautiful inside as out <3


The pattern is trim-free, comes in A4 or US letter size, and has layers in the PDF so you can print only the size/s you want. There is also an A0 format in case you’d like to take it to a professional printer.

This is the ladies version but it’s also available as a matching childs pattern so you can even do matching “Mommy and Me” dresses! Get the child’s version here. Or get both as a bundle here.

    Give it a try you may be pleasantly surprised and follow the recommendations for fabric selection because it truly does make all the difference in the fit and finish. Very versatile given your fabric choice, from casual to formal. I believe that my top will be worn a lot, super cool and casual for summer (cannot wait to pack it for my next cruise) or dressed up for more formal wear. Chiffon awesome fabric to do that.

    There are so many small details that make this pattern attractive, the cut out back, the front pleat! Also top or dress length and sleeveless or long sleeve make it perfect for all seasons!

    It is a great way to expand your skills, and the gathering on the back piece makes it a truly unique garment!

    Make sure you use fabric with a good drape/flow. It’s a beautiful pattern with interesting details. Don’t expect it to be tight fitting, it’s going to be loose, embrace it, it looks great!

    Use a very soft fabric if making the dress, it’s a better fit.

    I would say it is a lovely pattern and pretty easy to sew up, but be selective in your fabric choice. The type of fabric used could make all the difference. The fabric suggestions in the pattern are right on though, so stick to those.

The Small Print


Every pattern we make has been tried & tested first by our team, then by specially selected pre-testers, then by a group of up to 50 different sewers of different abilities, ages, sizes, shapes, body types, and experience levels.

We literally spend hours designing, testing and checking the pattern to make sure it works and the instructions are easy to follow. Hopefully you’ll love the end result as much as we do! But, if for any reason you don’t, please get in touch so we can help.


This pattern can be used to make beautiful little garments for personal use, or can be made in limited quantities to sell. You can only sell the finished product; you cannot sell the pattern or these instructions. We’d love you to include a credit to as the pattern designer when you make garments from the pattern to sell, but it’s up to you.


As soon as you have paid you will receive a link to download the pattern, so you can get started immediately if you like. Note, this is a digital, download-only pattern. You will not receive a physical copy in the post.
