For Alice we recommend lightweight knit fabrics with good stretch and recovery, such as viscose jersey.
The Alice Top sewing pattern is sized between UK sizes 8-20, and also comes with separate cup sizes (B, C and D). See the chart for details on fabric requirements.
Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
What will I receive?
The downloadable pattern file contains:
- printable pattern (in both tiled print-at-home and copyshop format)
- fully-illustrated printable instruction booklet
- copyshop permissions letter
The tiled print-at-home PDF sewing pattern is 15 pages long for the main body of the top and an additional 8 for each cup size option.
If you purchase the PDF Pattern + Copyshop Printing option, you will also receive your pattern printed on A0 paper in the post. Find out more about our PDF Printing Service here.
So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home. Simply download, print, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
