Hi, does it have to be viscose fabric for these tops? Thank you.

Hey, you can use any woven fabric you like. We think it looks best in something drapey such as viscose, crepe or lawn. But you could also use cotton, linen, shirtings, chambray or even upcycle a sheet or tablecloth for a practice.

Can you tell me where the templates are. When I go into what you will need,it takes me to a link to how to measure yourself. There is no size chart or templates link .

Hey, sorry it looks like a duplicate video sneaked in there. The right one is there now and I have added an extra link to take you to your Downloads sections so that you can grab the size charts etc. Thanks for your patience.

Thank you for coming back to me so quickly ?

If I am using an old duvet cover for my material how do I find the selvedge edge ? Many thanks.

usually the selvedges would be at each side of the duvet, just check that the grain line is straight

Can the sleeves be made longer? Or does that need a different pattern?

Hi Pauline,
You can make the sleeves a little longer but we wouldn’t recommend making them full length as they may need more shaping. You could try adding 3 or4 inches and see how it looks, its easy to trim back any length you end up not wanting.
