When I designed the Pleated Skirt for the latest magazine, I knew it would look good with a slim fitting top. This was when it occurred to me that The Wrap Dress would make a great top.
To achieve this is really simple, just fold back the front and back pattern pieces at the length you wish the top to be, remembering to add your hem allowance. I chose a length of 60 cm from the neck point this includes 1cm for a simple turned hem. This gave a finished length of 59 cm.
For the red Wrap Top I also added a velvet ribbon trim. This I placed on the seam between the neckband piece and the body, carefully stitching down both edges.
