Kingfisher Top

Regular price $16.50

Unit price per 

Size

The most versatile sewing pattern in our collection, variations of the Kingfisher top have dominated my wardrobe for the last 10 years.  Designed to be sewn in woven fabric with neck and sleeve bands in ribbing or stretch, it can be made in short sleeve, 3/4 and now the new long sleeve with a ruffle option.  A pattern for all year round.

The raglan sleeve is easy to sew and the Kingfisher can be colourful in contrasting fabrics or more subtle in single coloured fabrics.

FABRIC

Please refer to the FABRIC REQUIREMENT CHART as one of the last images on this product listing. You can magnify this image if viewing it on a mobile phone whilst in a fabric store.

The Kingfisher is designed for a woven bodice and sleeves with contrasting jersey knit/ribbing or cotton/poly/lycra blend stretch neck and sleeve bands.

Bodice: Most light to mid weight woven fabrics with a SOFT DRAPE are recommended for this pattern. Polyester crepe, polyester, rayon, chiffon and viscose are best. Soft draping cotton and cotton blends will also work.

DIFFICULTY

Suitable for Confident Beginners (although the sleeve ruffle option is an easy intermediate). The Kingfisher Top is able to be sewn with or without an overlocker (serger) to sew the neck and arm bands and neaten the seams. A simple zig-zag stitch will do the trick.

SIZE & FITTING

Each purchase comes with 4 sizes (please refer last image for size chart and international size comparisons) or refer the Size Chart for help if you need. 

Small - (NZ/AU/UK 6-8-10-12  | US 2-4-6-8)                    PAH pages=29* | AO pages=2 
Medium - (NZ/AU/UK 10-12-14-16  | US 6-8-10-12)        PAH pages=30* | AO pages=2 
Large - (NZ/AU/UK 14-16-18-20  | US 10-12-14-16)        PAH pages=30* | AO pages=2 
X-Large - (NZ/AU/UK 18-20-22-24  | US 12-14-16-18)    PAH pages=30* | AO pages=2 

*Instructions advise different pages to print depending on your sleeve choice, which reduces Print-at-home pattern tiles by 9-11 pages.

WHAT DO I GET WITH MY PURCHASE?

Please note you are purchasing a digital pattern that will be sent directly to your email inbox after payment. You can print this pattern at home on A4 or US letter-sized paper or take it to a print shop for large scale printing (AO size). *You will not receive a hard copy printed pattern.*

Instant download available immediately after checkout includes:

1. Instructions

2. PAH Pattern file (PAH=Print at home)
For printing in A4 or US Letter on a home printer. Printing at home is the most cost-effective, and sticking your pattern tiles together to make your full size pattern is easy. Further information for printing at home can be found in our Resources section here. 

3. AO Pattern file
AO is a large scale file designed to be printed at a Print Copy Shop. You cannot print this on your home printer as it is too big. If you choose to use this large file you will pay extra to have it printed but you do not have to stick anything together.

You can use the ADOBE LAYERS FEATURE to open the PAH pattern file and print only the size you need (and eliminate the "noise" of the unwanted sizes). You can also use the URL and bookmark links within the file to quickly access information and support. Download Adobe Reader for free (for Windows and Mac) here.

Love this pattern

I’m not experienced with sewing and have never tried sewing a top using ribbing as I was afraid of the overstretched neckline. However, the pattern is super easy to sew (short sleeve) and the instructions are very easy to follow. I love the styles of patterns offered by Sewing Revival (bought 3 of them) and will certainly buy more.

Kingfisher Top

I soon whizzed up a short sleeved t shirt, complete with frills, no adjustments necessary which is always a bonus. It’s nice to have a pattern for a t shirt for woven fabric (apart from the neckband and sleeve band)

Love this pattern

I've sewn simple stuff for years but never tackled stretch and knit successfully but thanks to this pattern i'm a convert. I've made 2 x tops that fit well and look good.... great way to use up odds and ends of material. Many thanks Janine

First purchase from Sewing Revival

Very happy with the end result. Fit and style is great. I opted to print the pattern at a local copy shop which was easy. I've now got confidence to get back into more sewing for myself and plan on using this pattern again this weekend and I'll be purchasing a couple of other patterns in the near future too.

The first of many

Super quick and easy to make. Instructions are clear. It’s also a great top to make with large 'scraps’ of fabric because of the raglan sleeve style.

Kingfisher Top

I was looking for a casual summer top pattern to make out of a drapey viscose and I liked the combination of woven and knit fabric in the Kingfisher top. The pattern was exactly what I was looking for. It was well drafted and the instructions were clear. This pattern will go in my collection of 'go to' patterns for repeat use.

Happy with the fit but struggled to attatch the stretch contrasting fabric around the neckline. It didn't sit flat so ended up making some bias tape.

Love the nudge to combine fabrics

Another TSR pattern that comes together like a dream! I love the options for sleeves and the new ruffle - mine went down my front as I opted for shorter sleeves. The concept of using laid-back jersey knit for the sleeve and neckline bands works so well - you guys have really nailed the art of relaxed dressing that’s somehow elevated, aways with design features that are distinctive without being overdone. Love my Kingfisher and planning another already...

Excellent pattern

I will use this pattern lots as it a very good basis pattern that can be changed depending on the fabric that is used

Great basic pattern

Easy to sew and fits really nicely. Made three quarter sleeves but added a longer rib band on bottom of sleeves and rib on bottom as well instead of hemming. Used a half metre remnant of linen and some knit fabric. Looking forward to making another in silk.

Fantastic pattern

This pattern was well-drafted. I made my usual petite adjustment. The fit is fantastic. Top went together quickly, looks great. I am currently making another one doing the gathered neck - using the ideas in the instructions. And am going to try one in a knit fabric as well. Great ideas for experimenting with different options in the instructions. When I purchased these instructions, I bought several other patterns as well, and will be purchasing additional patterns later this month!!

Love this pattern and how it fits. Have made both sleeve length options. Using ribbing for the neckline and sleeves makes it a fun and easy sew. Will definitely be making more!
