It’s often the little things that draw special attention. The “Betty” top from our “inspiration” magazine provides that certain something with a sophisticated back section. The neckline looks rather well-behaved at the front, but the top shows its sexy face from the back. We’ll show you how to sew this top and make the pattern available to you free of charge until the end of the month.
Top sewing – the “Betty” model
The free pattern including step-by-step instructions is available until July 31, 2023 as part of the monthly downloads from “inspiration”. You can find the download link further down in the post.
On closer inspection, this top has even more to offer than the turn-down collar. The small bow on the back underlines the effect, but also provides more stability at the end of the slit.
