Sewing Level

The Alderley Top is a Confident Beginner sewing pattern

Fabric Suggestions

As the Alderley Top is cut on the bias grain, it needs a fabric with a bit of drape to show off its best features. If you’re new to sewing with bias cut fabrics, we’d recommend choosing a cotton lawn as this will be relatively stable to sew, but will still have some movement when you’re wearing your top. If you’re feeling more adventurous the sky is the limit! Try soft viscoses, bright crepes & georgettes and even silk for the most luxurious of Alderleys.

What is a PDF pattern?

A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper.

Choose to add on A0 printing and we will print the pattern on our A0 printers and post it to you so all you need to access digitally is the instruction booklet.

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.

Is this sewing pattern layered?

Yes! This pattern is layered so you can print off just the size(s) that you need. Find out more about layering here.

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
