Agnes Top by Tilly and the Buttons now in stock
The Agnes Top sewing pattern by Tilly Walnes (aka Tilly and the Buttons) is now in stock! Agnes is a close-fitting jersey top, speedy to sew and simple to fit, finished with a narrow band at the neckline.
Choose from long or cropped sleeves; plain or ruched sleeves; scoop neckline or ruched sweetheart neckline – eight possible combinations. Irresistibly wearable and endlessly versatile, Agnes is sure to be a top you’ll make again and again!
The Agnes works well with light- to medium-weight stretch knit fabrics, such as cotton jersey, viscose jersey or wool jersey. Check that the fabric can be stretched crosswise at least 25% wider than its original width. Jersey fabric with 5% spandex, elastane or Lycra is just right.
The pattern is suitable for confident beginners or improvers – jersey isn’t the easiest fabric to sew, so ideally you should have made a few garments before. If you’re a fan of the Coco sewing pattern, a loose-fitting garment designed for low-stretch knits, Agnes is the perfect next step to build your skills and get to grips with handling stretchier knit fabric and sewing a close-fitting top. The easy-to-use sewing pattern includes clearly labelled pattern pieces that show you which seams are which, step-by-step photo instructions and helpful tips for sewing jersey on a regular sewing machine – no overlocker or serger required!
