Box Top Pattern
One of Jo's favourite designs, the simple yet versatile Box Top! She decided to release this as a sewing pattern because it suits all ages, shapes and sizes.
Easily modified to lengthen or shorten, or hack the basic pattern to create a smock top or dress.
Full instructions on how to personalise these options are included in the pattern. You decide where the waist is created, and how long you'd like the gathered skirt for a dress or smock top.
A generously sized top that drapes beautifully on the body, with a cap sleeve, a crew neckline, and a narrow hem.
There is no hand sewing required in the construction of this garment.
