Sewing Pattern, Imagine Gnats, The Bess Top
The bess top has an easy fit that is designed to flatter a variety of body types. Both shirt and tunic lengths have a subtle hi-lo hem, and the dress is designed to hit at the knee. All options feature pleated yoke formed by a wrap-around sleeve, and tunic and dress lengths include optional in-seam pockets. The neckline, sleeves, and hem (for shirt and tunic lengths) are all finished with jersey knit, a technique that gives a clean, easy finish, allowing for a well-stitched curve while providing stability.
