Fit + Sizing
The pattern was drafted to be fitted to the upper bodice and relaxed in the skirt.
How your under bust and waist measurements compare to your body measurements will show approximately how much space will be at the sides when laced up.

Example: I measure 32" under the bust and 30" at the waist, and wear a size S with about 1" space at the sides once laced up.

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.
