FREE SEWING PATTERN: Scallop Top

Well hello there!

Thanks again for visiting my blog.  You guys always make my day 🙂

We also have an ETSY STORE, where you will find unique and modern sewing pattern for women.

I am happy to introduce my Scallop Top today.
I wanted to make a scallop neckline for a while, so I am happy to see it coming to life with this design.I, first, thought about a dress…but it seems to me as it went to vintage looking; nothing wrong about it, but it was not me completely. I believe that the top makes more sense to my own wardrobe.  In any case I added the dress for you if you would like to try it as well 😉

This top was made in collaboration with Fort Worth Fabric Studio.  They have been great supporting my blog and giving me the opportunity to make this project. 

The fabric 

I have decided to work with Confetti Dot Grass by Dear Stella.
The fabric was great to work with and it helped to complete the vision I have for the top.

This will be the layout of your pattern:
The top

It will print 16 pages.
Wait until all the pages are printed before taking them from the printer; it will make it easier to assemble.When finish printing, place the pages as the layout below. Then use tape to put them together. Now cut the pieces.
The Dress


This will print 32 pages, but you can surely skip from number 27 to 32.

Sometimes, there are problems with the printing process and the patterns come in the wrong size (a little bit smaller).  To avoid this, check the 1 inch square inside of the front bodice pattern. It will help you to see if the patterns are the correct size.

  1. Thank you for the lovely pattern. There seems to be a step or two missing from the instructions though. I am in the process of sewing this shirt right now and a bit confused but I’ll get through. Thanks again!

  2. Hello ! Thank you for this very pretty pattern. The neck is very charming.
    But I have a question. Since this garment looks fitted, with darts and all, how do you enter into it ? Is it intended only for strechchy fabrics ? On most women, the bust is larger than the waist. I see no zipper on side or back. Thank you for your help.

    1. Hi Noelle,

      Thanks for your comment. I am sorry for the inconvenience. The pattern should definitely have a zipper on the back. If you want to do that, I suggest to add 1/4 inch seam allowance to the back bodice.

      I will be checking on that pattern.

      Happy Sewing!
