I am very excited to be able to give away my awesome Camellia Top Pattern for you to use.

As you may know  I have been working  to create a pattern of my own to use here on Sewing Avenue with you. It is now ready and I love the end result, it is a very useful pattern which we can use and manipulate in many ways to create an infinite amount of designs and very wearable tops.

So far I have had time to make the Camellia Top in three different fabrics for three completely different looks.

I’ve made it in a bright pink with a black trim, a floral cotton with a white bias binding and a shiny silver satin.
I have big plans for this little top and I am going to be making it again in future blogs to create different looks for many occasions.

The Camellia Top

The Camellia Top is a fantastic item to add to any woman’s wardrobe. This top is very easy to make and comes as just two simple pattern pieces, a back and a front. There are two bust darts in the front piece to create a bit of shape and it is edged with bias binding. You can easily make your own bias binding so it contrasts or compliments the colour of the shirt. Cotton fabric is best for this but many other fabrics work well too.

It is a top which will never go out of style and can be updated for any season in a wide range of fabrics. I also think this is an ageless piece which would suit anyone from eight to eighty.

I have decided to share the fun with you so therefore I am making this pattern available for everyone to download completely free.

Simply fill in your Email address on this link, “Email Newsletter” and I’ll send you a link to download your very own copy of the Camellia Top. I promise that your Email details will be held in confidence and never shared with anyone.

This pdf pattern covers sizes US 4/UK 8, US 6/UK 10, US 8/UK 12.
It prints out in both A4 and Letter and uses 9 pieces of paper. It also comes with a construction diagram for assembling the pattern pieces and instructions for making up the garment. There is further information for you on the  downloading and printing  page of this blog site in case you should experience any download problems or printing difficulties.

I intend to get the pattern made in more sizes before the end of February, upto and including sizes US 20/UK 24, so if you don’t see the size you need here please be patient and I’ll have it ready as soon as possible and post a blog about it when it is done. Then you too can enjoy making many Camellia tops for yourself and your friends and family.
