New Pattern Release: Elevate Crop Top and Overlay

Posted by on

Elevate your wardrobe with the new Elevate crop top and overlay! Wear them layered or by themselves for a look that is perfect for the gym, running errands, or going out on the town! This set comes in sizes B to M.

The Crop:

The crop top has the option for either neck and arm bands or binding, and is designed to hit just below the natural waist. It also has a cool cross front waistband and includes a full bust adjustment for sizes H through M. It has two back options: racerback and U back, and has 2 neckline heights: low and high! Make it out of athletic fabric for a cute gym look, cotton lycra or similar fabrics for a lounge top, or even swim fabric for a trendy swim top! The possibilities are endless!

The Overlay:

The overlay is intended to be a comfortable, loose fit with drop sleeves. It has sleeveless and long sleeve options, with both hemmed and banded finishes for the long sleeves, and a clean binding finish on the sleeveless option. It has a really cool cross over back detail that you can either hem and tie, or cross over and band! A binding neckline/cross over finish and a back strap finish off this overlay with a clean, professional look. A few of our testers wore this overlay with the banded cross over in the front, with the tie in the front, or even with the tie left open like a cool drape front cardigan! There are SO many options with this overlay!

Fabric:

You will need at least 75% 4-way stretch knit for the crop top and 50% 4-way stretch knit for the overlay. Look for fabric similar to spandex/lycra, supplex, circular knit, brushed poly, rib knit, etc. The crop top takes 5/8 yard for sizes B-I and 7/8 yard for sizes J-M. The sleeveless overlay takes 1 1/2 yards for sizes B-I and 1 3/4 yards for sizes J-M, and long sleeve overlay takes 2 1/8 yards for sizes B-I and 2 1/4 yards for sizes J-M.
