One shoulder short top


Let's draft the pattern for this trendy and versatile top.

Start from a basic block with darts and 0 wearing ease if you want it super tight or if you work with a fabric with 2-4% stretch, or add 2cm ease to bust circumference if you work with non stretch fabric and want a little room.

It can be sewn in any woven fabric: cotton, linen, gabardine, denim for everyday or silk ottoman, silk shantung, faille or taffeta for a more formal occasion.

Step 1

Trace a copy of your basic block with darts and mirror it to have a full front.

Draw the underbust line with a reversed V shape.

Widen waist dart so that it is 3cm wide from waist to underbust.

Step 2

Draw the rounded neckline merging the line to armhole one at armpit.

Step 3

Draw the shoulder strap on right shoulder (left part of the sheet) measuring 2 to 3cm inward from each shoulder line end.
