Style 2301

Twirl through life in this striking knit top. Slight gathering at the side seams provide shaping for the bust. Godets at the hem bring drape and drama.

Create a sleeveless layering piece with a classic banded neckline, or make a statement with an elegant cowl and long sleeves.

The Gorgeous Godet Top works best with lightweight knits with four-way stretch.  Wider fabric is recommended, as this top has some large pieces. See the chart at left for fabric requirements.

  • For contrasting godets, you will need about 1 yard/meter for all sizes.
  • “With nap” layouts are provided for directional prints or luxe fabrics, such as stretch velvet.
  • This pattern is not suitable for striped fabrics for the bodice - but try a contrasting godet in horizontal or vertical stripes to add dimension.

You will also need:

  • Matching thread
  • About 7 inches (18 cm) of narrow elastic, twill tape or other material to stabilize the shoulders.
  • For View B: about 1 yard or meter of fusible stabilizer or stay tape for the cowl neckline.

The pattern comes in copy-shop and print-at-home formats with layered sizes - just choose and print the sizes you need. Directions come in standard and large-print formats so you can easily read and see every expertly illustrated step.
