FABRIC

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

WOVEN fabrics: Fabrics with a soft drape work best for the Bellbird Top.
We recommend rayon, silk, viscose, tencel, crepe and polyester (incl chiffon). Lightweight linen, cotton and cotton blends work OK, but stiff cottons will not get the best results.

Our samples are made up as follows:
Grey - polyester chiffon
Salmon pink floral (V Neck pic) - rayon
Cream with floral pattern - polyester
Blue & pink floral - 100% lightweight cotton
Red & black - nylon

DIFFICULTY

Confident Beginner (2/5).

The Bellbird Top is very simple and able to be sewn with or without an overlocker (serger) to neaten the seams.

 SIZE & FITTING

This is a loose-fitting garment. If you prefer it to be a little less "roomy" or you are "in-between" sizes then we suggest you make up the smaller size. 

This PDF pattern is available in sizes NZ/UK/US 6-22  (US2-18).

Each purchase comes with 4 sizes (please refer to the last image for size chart and international size comparisons):

Small:      (NZ/AU/UK 6-8-10-12  | US 2-4-6-8)

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.

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.

 All size bundles require only 1 x AO sized sheet.

    Pleasing result

    My first Bellbird Top and it turned out better than I could have hoped for! So good in fact that I made another one the next day. Definitely give this pattern a go if you are wondering ‘can I sew a top?’ .. You can sew this one!!!

    Bellbird Top

    With a little hiccup printing the pattern (that I will put down to user error and not the pattern)but communication with Janine at the time was very quick and easy. As I have very limited sewing experience I am very happy with the top, the instructions were very easy to follow and understand. Had a small problem with the sizing but put this down to inexperience. I am more than happy how the final product turned out, and how easy it was to put together, will definitely be purchasing further patterns.
