Crop top with cups


Let's draft together the pattern for this crop top with cups.

To add bones, bonecases are created topstitching seam allowances to the side. Underwire is inserted into a wire case sewn to the corset inner part.

You can use any light to medium weight fabric - just remember to adjust wearing ease if you use something a bit stretchy.

Step 1

To draft the pattern, start from a contoured block.

Draw underbust line and widen waist dart on front so that it is 3cm wide from waist to underbust.

Step 2

Draw back neckline, continue the line at front armpit, then use the underwire as a ruler to draw a matching curve on underbust.

We suggest to always draw the line shaped exactly as the wire you’ll be adding as this prevents bad wrinkles on fabric 😉

Step 3

Depending on your cup size, draw a line 1cm wider at underwire bottom and 1 to 2cm wider in direction of armhole.

Draw neckline approx 3cm away from bust point.

Widen shoulder dart by 0,5cm at neckline.
