We have been working hard to revamp our very first sewing pattern, the Sailor Top—improving fit, drafting a more inclusive size range, and adding the most requested update: a long sleeve option. Now it's time to say hello to the brand new, yet very familiar, Cordyline sewing pattern!
The Cordyline pattern is a raglan sleeve top with gathered neckline & faced yoke. Its simple construction is easy to wear & easy to sew.
Cordyline is our favorite go-to garment for pairing with fun cotton prints. Not many garment patterns work nicely with quilting-weight cotton, but Cordyline works fantastically!
For a simpler style, it is lovely in solid linen or chambray, or sewn in a luxurious silk noil or rayon. This versatile pattern works with so many fabrics!
The re-released Cordyline now goes up to a 4x or 56” bust and has improved fit in the arms and yoke. We’re excited to offer this popular pattern to the world again. Welcome, Cordyline!
