Emily Top PDF Sewing Pattern

From: £11.50


Make the perfect summer cami with the Emily Top PDF sewing pattern!

Warning, this pattern is addictive! The Emily Top is a cami pattern you’ll be wearing all summer. Once you’ve nailed the fit, you’ll want to make it over and over again. It’s quick to sew and it doesn’t use up much fabric.

We wanted to give you lots of variations so you can make the perfect top for you: pick between a crop top or a full length cami with a beautiful curved hem. Make Emily with a V-neck or a scoop neck and keep it simple or add a pretty frill.

Emily is finished with a facing that cleverly encloses the raw edges on the armholes and neckline with the burrito method.

All versions work well in a drapey fabric like viscose or viscose linen, and the cropped version also looks great in cotton or linen. The frill is cut on the straight grain, so it’s a great opportunity to play with border prints or the scalloped edge of a broderie anglaise.

The Emily Top is the perfect companion to the Keira Shorts. Get both sewing patterns and save 10% with the Emily Top & Keira Shorts Bundle. If you’d like to make a matching set, we recommend using viscose linen, for the perfect combination of structure and drape that will work for both Emily and Keira. For a viscose co-ord set, pair Emily with our FREE Ruby Skirt!

Sewing Level
The Emily Top is a Confident Beginner woven top sewing pattern.

Fabric Suggestions

We recommend light to medium weight woven fabrics, think viscose, crepe and cotton lawns. You can also use broderie anglaise to make the most of the frill edge. The cropped version can also be made in cotton and brocade fabrics for a more structured, boxy look. 

Sizing & Fabric Requirements
The Emily Top is sized between UK sizes 6-30 and is split into two different blocks: sizes 6-20 (B cup) and sizes 18-30 (D cup). See the size charts (last pictures in the gallery) 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) in all sizes
  • fully-illustrated printable instruction booklet
  • copyshop permission letter

The Emily Top pattern is either 26 A4 pages/US letter pages, or 1 A0 copyshop page (sizes 6-20), or 30 A4 pages/US letter pages, or 2 A0 copyshop pages (size 18-30).

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 on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, 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.
