Pam Top: This is the top version of the popular Pam Dress
The Pam Dress pattern has been such a popular PDF printable pattern on On the Cutting Floor’s Blog, that it was about time to create a top version of it.
The Top as well as the dress can be downloaded for free.
The top features:
A semi fitted, boat neck top with a high hip length.
It is a very easy top to make and it comes with 2 extra sewing tutorials to help you to make it:
How to Make the Pam top : Please, check on the A-line top tutorial for the step by step instructions. The Pam top pattern requires the same construction process than the A-line.
1 yard of medium weight cotton sateen or stretch cotton fabric
regular sewing needle
1 yard of single folded bias tape
7” invisible zipper
The pattern covers sizes from 4 to 22. Please check on the chart below for size measurements
I used a medium weight, cotton sateen.
The pattern will work well with light, medium weight woven.
Here are some examples of fabrics that will work wonderfully with this pattern:
The pattern comes in letter, Copy Shop (A0) and A4 format. The pages OVERLAP 1/4 inch.
Please notice that there might be small differences from printer to printer.
Remember to check the ”actual size” printing option:
Letter and A4
Copy Shop (A0)
This patterns comes with specific marks to put the pieces together:
The blue diamond the symbol to help you to put the pages together. Each page has half of the diamond on each page. When the pages are aligned correctly, it will form the full diamond
