After ironing your fabric, place on it the pattern that you previously cut.


Cut the fabric with 1cm of seam allowances for the size 40-42 or without seam allowances if you want it smaller.


You can adjust the size by comparing the width with your own measurement and if necessary remove the sides, as indicated by de blue arrows.

With a Safety 4-threads stitch, sew together the both sides and the shoulders. Fold all the hem (bottom, neckhole and armhole (1cm) and mark it with iron. Place some pins.


Sew the hems with the coverstich of your elna overlockmachine or coverlock machine to finish your basic Top very nicely.

You have just completed your Top, congratulations !
