Dear readers, my very own sewing pattern label “Sewionista Patterns” is finally getting started! I can’t believe that it is already more than a half year ago that I showed you my perfect top pattern. Back then, I also announced that I would offer the pattern as a free download. Two more versions followed quickly, here and here. But then things didn’t turn out the way I planned. Drafting and grading the pattern had been a piece of cake thanks to my dressmaking training but digitizing the pattern proofed to be much more difficult than anticipated. After a lot of back and forth and trial and error, I finally bit the bullet and learned Adobe Illustrator. After that I was on a run and am proud to introduce to you with the Swing Top my first digital pattern to you. However, the Swing Top is not only my first PDF pattern but also the start of my own tiny pattern label “Sewionista Patterns”. As I have been a busy bee lately, you will soon find even more patterns from me. Have fun sewing!

Therefore, you can get to know my sewing patterns as well as the sizes used by me, I offer you the Swing Top PDF pattern as a free download. The Swing Top is a wide fitting top without darts and a high cut neckline. The neckline as well as the armholes can either be finished with bias tape or facing. Bias tape works particularly well for slightly transparent or printed fabrics, as the different lines can create interesting designs. In addition, the top is offered in 2 different lengths: crop top (47 cm size 38) or regular length (62 cm size 38). You only have to subscribe here to my newsletter to receive the free Swing Top sewing pattern. After successful subscription, you will receive the download link in the final confirmation mail. Of course, you can unsubscribe at any time. Please don’t hesitate to contact me by sending a mail to sewionista@gmail.com, if you are having problems with the download or any other questions. Have fun sewing!
