Cuff Top XL-4XL


Easy and satisfying to make yet elegant, the Cuff Top is our most loved pattern and almost addictive to make. It has a straight fit and cap sleeves with wide elastic cuffs. The smaller size range comes with a boat neck and the larger size range has a keyhole opening with a button at back. The blue top is styled together with their Almost long trousers and the green top is combined with their Three pleat skirt and Apron dress.
