Sewing Patterns


Several of the patterns in the Tops & Tunics Category are designed on a Basic Shell/Basic Dress Design Block. Watch for patterns marked as a Dress Club Pattern. These patterns are designed so you can Mix & Match the patterns. The sleeve from any dress or top with the Dress Club Symbol on the pattern will interchange with any other pattern with the Dress Club Symbol.

There are also patterns in the Dress Category that are part of the Dress Club Series
   
 
Sierra Swing Topper Jacket Pattern by Brensan Studios

Cape Version Sierra Swing Topper Jacket Pattern by Brensan Studios** NEW **  
Sierra Swing Topper/Jacket Pattern

Designed on a Dress Block, but wear like a Jacket

This easy, unlined jacket/topper will quickly become your go-to pattern! The jacket is designed on a dress block so is best worn over a sleeveless or thinner top. The body is designed as a swing, but with only enough flare to be flattering. The long sleeves are flared with additional width designed in at the upper arm for wearing comfort. There are no facings and the edge is handled with a fun and easy edge treatment using the same fabric as the jacket. The optional cape adds to the flexibility of this pattern and is a single piece of fabric, matched to the body at the neckline before the edge treatment is applied.

BONUS: This pattern is part of the Dress Club Series of Patterns - so all other sleeves in the Dress Club Series will interchange with the body. Enjoy!

Classic Wisteria True Sleeveless Shell Pattern by Brensan Studios

Optional Ruffle Detail Classic Wisteria True Sleeveless Shell Pattern by Brensan Studios

Optional Butterfly Sleeves Classic Wisteria True Sleeveless Shell Pattern by Brensan Studios

 

 

Fitted Version Classic Wisteria True Sleeveless Shell Pattern by Brensan Studios** NEW **  
Wisteria Sleeveless Shell Sewing Pattern

Casual Fit or Tailored Fit

This is a ‘true’ sleeveless shell. The underarm area is 1/2” higher and the gap at the front armhole has been removed. Additionally the neckline has been lowered (and the gap adjusted) and the outer shoulder area has been brought in slightly. The really important aspect is that nothing will show that you don’t want showing! The shoulder area is wide enough to hide a bra strap and the underarm area will not play peek-a-boo! There is a bust-dart so you can easily adjust the fit and the vertical darts are used for the tailored version (which has a side zipper) but omitted for the pullover version. The neck and armhole facings have been combined for a smooth fit across the upper bodice. Three optional ruffles can be mixed & matched for a variety of fun neckline effects. The butterfly sleeves are optional, and while they are not really sleeves (the underarm is open) they do cover the upper arm area nicely. A fundamental pattern that will be a good addition to your pattern collection.

Easy Art to Wear Ebisu Tunic Sewing Pattern by Brensan Studios

Back View Easy Art to Wear Ebisu Tunic Sewing Pattern by Brensan Studios  Ebisu Tunic
Sewing Pattern

Fast, Fun and Fabulous -- and a great addition to your pattern collection. This tunic will be its best in a soft fabric with flow and drape. The cover models are made from Rayon Batiks, but this would be beautiful in silks or blends. The fluid movement of the design lines is flattering to all figure shapes and the dolman sleeves minimize fitting challenges.
Ebisu was the Japanese God of the Sea and Good Luck for Fishermen.

Cowl Neck Tunic Sewing Pattern by Brensan Studios

 

 

Cowl Neck Tunic Sewing Pattern by Brensan Studios Cowl Neck Tunic
Sewing Pattern

This beautiful Cowl Neck tunic/blouse is designed so you can have a bit of fun with the Cowl Neck itself. The Cowl portion of the pattern is separate and is cut on the bias for a soft drape, while the body portion of the pattern is cut on the straight-grain for stability. This pattern is close-fitting (like a Basic Shell) so you can shorten and wear under a jacket (with sleeves from our Basic Shell pattern). The flowing flute-style sleeves are just above the elbow. The Cowl portion is beautiful when cut from a 24” (or larger) scarf. This pattern does have a bust dart and pattern alteration guidelines are included.

Raglan Topper Shirt Sewing Pattern by Brensan Studios

 

 

Pieced Version Raglan Topper Shirt Sewing Pattern by Brensan StudiosRaglan Topper Pattern

Make this fun and easy shirt from one fabulous fabric or 8 coordinated fabrics. Designed to be made from a single 2 1/2yd border fabric from Bold Over Batiks, we just couldn’t resist making it in an assortment of gorgeous batiks, too. The raglan sleeves provide a perfect design element for inserting a contrasting fabric and the same insert accents the front and neckline area. Buttons down the center front with a hidden placket behind provide modesty and a nice focal design point.
