We're thrilled to announce that the Viola Top is here! Viola is a chic, sophisticated knit top that is sure to turn heads! With an asymmetrical neckline and gracefully draped folds, the Viola top is a simple sew with serious impact.
Read on, or go check out the pattern on our shop here. Psst - she's 20% off for launch week with code VIOLA.
Viola is a top designed for knit fabrics. The front features an asymmetric neckline, with draped folds that radiate from the shoulder and flow around the body. Unique dart tucks, also known as release tucks, are used to create the design and incorporate shaping for the bust into the draped style lines.
While fitted at the shoulders and hem, the bust and waist float away from the body. The sleeves can be made at three-quarter length, full length, or just past the wrist. Viola features an asymmetrical neckline and an optional collar. Both neckline views make make clever use of turnback facings for the neckline, giving a clean finish. No neckband needed!
The Viola Top may look intricate and complicated, but she's surprisingly quick and straight-forward to sew. With our fully illustrated instructions and supplemental sew along video you'll master the folds and take your knit garments to a new level! So many of our testers expressed amazement at how easy it was to sew, even though they were intimidated at first.
As well as the draped front, it's the little details that excite us, like the gentle 'V' to the back of the neck that works with both the collarless and collar view.
Choose a fluid knit fabric like viscose or merino jersey for a soft, romantic Viola Top. Or go for a beautifully bold, architectural look that emphasizes the style lines by using a a knit with more body like cotton jersey or interlock. Tip: If you're new to knits or simply want an easier sew, pick a stable fabric.
This blue viscose-spandex mix has a bit of body that beautifully shows off the style lines.
While the clever folds are unique and striking, underneath these lovely details, Viola is just as comfy as your basic tee. The Voila Top makes for a super versatile top and elevated addition to any wardrobe.
We've paired the blue, collarless Viola with jeans for an effortlessly cool look.
Like the blue version, the mauve Viola is also collarless with the 3/4 length sleeve, but this lightweight viscose-spandex mix is more lightweight, creating a different look. This softer, drapier Viola is styled with our Ella Skirt. These two make such a great party or date night outfit!
Lastly, our black sample features the collared view and below-wrist sleeve, and was sewn up a in a textured synthetic knit. The soft sheen and lovely drape of this fabric make it perfect for an elevated occasion, while still being cozy and comfortable. It looks oh-so-smart paired with our Sabrina Skirt made up in this lush black velvet.
