Sew Liberated Esme Top (Beginner)

(1 review) Write a Review


If you loved the Schoolhouse Tunic, you’ll also fall for the Esme - a wardrobe staple with a becoming yoke accentuated by a buttoned placket. The gathered sleeves are complemented by a darling elbow cuff, making the Esme an all-weather top. We recommend using cotton lawn for a warm weather top and cotton flannel for a cozy winter shirt. Learn new skills while making a simple-to-fit top that you will find yourself wearing time and again! Suitable for advanced beginners.The Esme pattern includes includes basic written instructions and assembly diagrams, as well as a download code to access a full video tutorial online! Also included are full-size pattern pieces for women’s sizes 2-20.


2-1/2 yards of 44-45” fabric with nice drape (cotton voile, double gauze)
Coordinating thread
5-6 1/2” buttons

    Lovely top
