The jersey top sewing pattern, also known as tanktop or singlet, is one of the basics in your closet. The combination possibilities are endless: whether with a cute mini skirt or a loose blouse, the tank top pattern is the perfect piece for the onion look! As a summer top or winter top under a cardigan, the tank top always looks good. With the wide neck and armhole binding and the high neckline, the trendy tank top pattern has a modern, sporty look. You decide: Sew the high neck tank top in the cropped version to pair with high-waisted pants or shorts, for example, or choose the longer version for a cozier look that always fits. The pattern for The Basic Top includes sizes XS-XXXL.

You want the perfect fit?

There is nothing more frustrating than when a homemade garment ends up fitting poorly. That’s over now! Because when you take the time to sew a garment yourself, you deserve it to be perfect. That’s why our patterns are now also available in the variant “Customized to your measurements”. How does it work? Choose the option “Customized to your measurements”, measure yourself according to our instructions and enter your current measurements in our form. Our designers then construct your individual pattern. You will receive it within 1 to maximum 2 weeks after filling out the form as paper pattern or digital pattern by email and can start sewing without fear that your garment will not fit in the end as expected.
