A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating a Pinterest-Inspired Top

If you’re feeling inspired to sew your own top, then look no further. Here’s a detailed guide on how to hack the Phoebe dress pattern to create a stylish and unique top.

What You’ll Need:

  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • The Phoebe Dress Sewing Pattern
  • 2-3 yards of fabric

Step One:
Begin by inserting a piece of paper behind the v-neck split and taping it down. Next, redraw the neckline to give it a scoop shape. Cut out the remaining paper to create your new neckline.

Step Two:
Fold your pattern in half and move the shoulder seam in 3 cm. Mark down 1.5cm and draw a line to connect the new shoulder point to the neckline. Be sure to mark your seam allowance on the front and back bodice pieces.

Step Three:
Tape the side panel to the front and back bodice separately. This will give you your new bodice pieces.
