The Tulip top pattern comes in sizes XS-6XL in 2 fit versions based on bust sizing. 

All models pictured have provided their measurements for your reference View the fit library here

The Tulip top works best with medium to heavy weight fabrics. My favourites are denim, cotton twill and canvas, though many more fabrics are possible depending on the overall fit and feel you desire.

The Tulip top requires 0.6-0.8 meters (0.7-0.9 yards) for both the main fabric and the lining. The amount depends on which size you make.

  • Thread
  • Ribbon
  • Grommets if using (alternatively you can make fabric loops

The pattern includes printable files for both A4 and A0 printing along with details instructions. A sew along video will also be available to watch on YouTube mid-June.
