Introducing the Romy Top Pattern

Meet our latest pattern and the perfect piece to slide into summer – the Romy Top! You may have seen this before as it’s already been doing some solid rounds in Colette’s holiday wardrobe.

This year, we fell hard for the square neckline (see also our Claudia Dress). It’s a little bit nineties and a whole lot cool.

Romy is semi-fitted across the top, lengthens out into a gentle a-line and features simple shoestring straps, facings and bust darts. There are no closures so it can easily be slipped on and off.

The design is a little wardrobe winner and works with everything – jeans, skirts, pants and shorts. Colette loves wearing hers (in our Jasiene washed linen, cropped by 6.5cm/2.5″) with the Evie Bias Skirt.

You can wear it out or tuck it in, wear it long or crop it short. And with the high front and even higher back, Romy can easily be worn with a strapless bra.

My version here is made up in our Ring Around Navy linen. I prefer a more cropped length so shortened it by 10cm (approx 4″).

Colette’s Romy below (in our silk CDC Picasso Blue) is pictured at actual pattern length.

Recommended fabrics for this pattern include woven fabrics such as linen, cotton, silk, rayon and viscose. The Romy Top comes in (Australian) sizes XXS-XL and is now available in both hardcopy and PDF copy shop/print-at-home version.
