Merchant & Mills, Edie Top or Dress Paper Pattern, two size ranges
Our Edie is made up in organic cotton batiste (it would be so lovely in Liberty Tana Lawn). We love the flowy silhouette with statement sleeves that tie at the wrist.
Edie's full balloon sleeves are gathered with a tie which is threaded through a buttonhole, alternatively you can omit this buttonhole and insert elastic instead. The Edie has a dropped shoulder, you could also extend the top into a dress – we found that the sleeves looked better a little shorter for a dress version
UK sizes 6 – 18. Skill level – intermediate.
We would suggest using the following fabrics – lighter weight woven fabrics, linen and linen blends, poplin, hemp and hemp blends, cotton chambray, Indian handweaves and block prints, tencel and tencel blends. The more structured the fabric the more sculptural your top will look.
