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.

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.
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.

3. AO Pattern file

Lieblingsteil fürs ganze Jahr
Das perfekte Shirt mit vielen Ärmelvarianten, lässig oder edel, je nach Stoff. Es ist schnell genäht, der Schnitt und die Anleitung sind super gemacht
good pattern, very exact measuring and easy to understand, but really oversized. the neck opening is huge!
Great pattern- stylish, easy and fun to make, excellent result. I’m so pleased I’m going to make another one!! Thanks TSR
My New Favorite!
I love this pattern! It is easy to sew and the fit is extremely flattering. I used a knit without a lot of stretch, and it was a quick project! I’ll definitely use this pattern frequently!
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.
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
sizing and instructions great. Only issue i fund was the neckband length was too short . i had to add quite a bit of length to get a nice finish
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.
The Sewing Revival
Thanks so much for your review and including a photo of your make Lisa. You've done a great job and we hope you get lots of wears (and compliments). Kindest regards, Janine
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.
This pattern was super easy to sew and I plan to make more!
Great pattern, and a quick easy sew. Not quite finished sewing my new top, but I’ll definitely be making more!
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...
I will use this pattern lots as it a very good basis pattern that can be changed depending on the fabric that is used
