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)
Medium: (NZ/AU/UK 10-12-14-16  | US 6-8-10-12)

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).

 All size bundles require only 1 x AO sized sheet.

    Lovely top - My new fav

    An easy to sew pattern that went together quickly. I love the drape with the rayon fabric I used. Will be making more for sure.

    So simple, so stylish!

    I have now made two Bellbird tops, and will no doubt make more. I have been so impressed with patterns from The Sewing Revival, despite being easy to sew, they look so stylish. The Bellbird top is versatile and easy to wear, the bonus being you can pretty much make it in a day! The instructions are straightforward, and I like the use of photographs.

    Love this top!

    Such an easy sew, these total five bellbirds over the past three summers. With such a good pattern you find the confidence to take it a step further with adding a bias binding finish on the neckline and still complete the top in a couple of hours! Love these tops when February tends to be so humid in Auckland.

    Love it so much I’ve made 4

    The pattern was so easy to follow and a great first project. I used both cotton and jersey and both hung really well. I love it so much I made 4 of these tops.

    Easy style I will make again.

    Can’t say how rare it is to get a facing that works perfectly first time. This is an easy sew. If you are a novice take your time ensuring you have your sewing margins correct. I might allow a little bit more in the hip area next time.

    First top NOT in jersey

    Perfect pattern and easy instruction. The Bellbird top is sewed in Viscose. It’s light as a feather and looks lovely with a pair of jeans or a more festive pants. Now I need to find my next pattern
