Bessie top is a versatile woven top pattern in two views. View A has a longer sleeve, which can be rolled up to create an effortless look, and a high-low hem. View B is a button-up shirt which has a two-piece collar, shorter sleeve and a straight hem. Both views have exaggerated two-piece raglan sleeves, which add visual interest to the top through uncommon seam lines. Bessie top has a loose, comfortable fit with plenty of ease, yet the bust darts provide for bust shaping. Sew Bessie up in either view or play with sleeve and hem options to create your own look!

Suggested Fabrics: Bessie top works great when sewn with light to medium-weight fabrics with no stretch. Linen, cotton (gauze, poplin, seersucker, shirting), hemp, viscose and rayon will work well. Lighter weight fabrics will add more drape, whereas heavier fabrics will result in a more structured garment. View B requires a small amount of interfacing
