Our New Rae Top Pattern

Back in February (which actually feels like somewhere between forever and a lifetime ago) we released our Rae Dress pattern and, at that time, mentioned plans to release a separate top pattern as well. Well finally, it’s here – meet our new Rae Top pattern!

The Rae Top gives three fabulous style options – sleeveless with bound armholes (View A), cap sleeves (View B) or soft, elbow length sleeves with gathered hems (View C).

View A – sleeveless, made up in Ebony Crush Washed Linen
View B – cap sleeve, made up in Bedford String linen.
View C – elbow-length sleeve, made up in Copper Ink Spot silk crepe de chine

Our favourite pattern feature is the wide elasticated neckline which makes this an easy, comfortable pull-on top.

You might be wondering how the top differs from the dress. There’s the three sleeve options of course, which can also be used with the dress. View C sleeve also has more fullness, and the bodice is slightly wider and there’s no centre back seam allowance an

Recommended fabrics for the Rae Top include linen, cotton poplin, light-weight wool, light-weight denim, silk, viscose and rayon.

View C – made up in Self Check White Washed Linen

In all these photos, Colette’s wearing the Rae Top with her Chiara Pants but really and truly, it pairs perfectly with all our pants patterns.

The Rae Top comes in (Australian) sizes 6-18 and is now available in both hardcopy and PDF copy shop/print-at-home versions. All sizes are included in the pattern.
