New Pattern Release - The Ostara Top

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

With a sweeping U-shaped or delicately pleated sweetheart neckline, The Ostara Top is the prettiest wardrobe essential you always knew you needed.

The Details

Ostara's classic and comfortable silhouette is the perfect base layer for any outfit. Flattering elbow-length or long sleeves will take you from day to night, through all of the seasons of the year.

The elegant wide set neckline is designed to keep bra straps covered, whether you choose to keep it simple with the U-shaped neckline or go a little more nostalgic with the sweetheart neckline.

Made with stretch knits, The Ostara Top is the ultimate 40s-inspired dressy t-shirt - hugging your body in all the right places for a flattering and comfortable fit.

Skill Level

Ostara is a great pattern for confident beginners. The U-neckline eases you into sewing with knits, and the sweetheart neckline lets you extend the pattern base with a few extra steps.

Note: Video tutorials on adding Tailor's Tacks specific to Ostara, as well as inserting neckline pleats for the sweetheart neckline, will be available in a few weeks.

Fabric Options

Look for lightweight knit fabrics with good recovery. Knits should have a minimum of 40% stretch as Ostara has in-built negative ease, particularly across the bust.

When using a fabric with 40% stretch, Ostara will fit bust cups A to D.

The Ostara Top was drafted using a 95% cotton 5% lycra spandex knit with a weight of 180GSM (grams per square metre).

The Layers Function

Both Print-at-home and Print Shop Ostara pattern files now include the Layers Function.

You can choose to turn on and off any number and combination of pattern sizes to suit your personal needs and preferences. Check out page 3 of your Ostara instructions for a full step-by-step tutorial on using this handy little function.
