Face To Face with the Athina Top

Here’s a design from our first drop of new & exclusive Tessuti Fabrics prints. Face To Face is a black & white 150gsm linen that’s perfect for tops, skirts, dresses, shirts and jumpsuits.

Silva has used it here with our free PDF Athina Top, making a few modifications along the way. She added 2.5cm (1″) to the width of the underarm ( 1/2″ added to front and back) and, instead of the pattern’s sleeve, added a 5cm (2”) wide double band instead.

The top’s finished length is 66cm (26”) and has a 5cm (2”) hem.

She also substituted the pattern’s neckline binding for a facing.

In this simple yet striking print, the result is SO good.

Not only is this fabric suitable for our Athina Top, we also love it for a number of our Tessuti sewing patterns including our Rae Top & Dress, Alice Top, Eva Dress, Bondi Dress, Ruby Top/Dress, Bailee Shorts & Arkie Shirt.
