Wide Neckline Variations to re-style your Tabula Rasa Knits in sizes XS-3XL. Includes patterns and templates to transform your basic knit top into a Boat neck or Ballet neck top with two optional collars (rounded and angled), a Draped Front, a curved hemline, and a flared cuff. This package does not include patterns for the side, back and sleeve because it is intended to be used in conjunction with your original Tabula Rasa Knits pattern. Please refer to your Tabula Rasa Knit Tee & Tunic pattern for those pieces, size and yardage information. This instruction book also includes design tips to sew, fit, stabilize, finish and embellish knit tops with wide necklines, collars and draped fronts, plus an extra section on using lingerie straps.
Tabula Rasa Knits with Wide Neckline Variations are appropriate for a wide range of knit fabrics. For draped neck tops, avoid definite stripes and plaids. The Ballet and Boat neck variations will require the same yardage as recommended for the Tabula Rasa Knit Tee or Tunic. Purchase an additional 1/4 yard for the draped front top, for each collar you wish to add, or for the curved hemline.
This pattern can be purchased in either a print version (instruction book and tissue patterns mailed to your shipping address) or in a downloadable digital version. Please enjoy samples of the Wide Neckline Variations in our photo gallery for inspiration!
