Strata Top Paper Pattern
The Strata Top pattern is the backbone of your handmade wardrobe and a great pattern for beginners. (The detailed instructions are accompanied by a video sew-along.)
The Strata is designed to be both a practice of meditation and a canvas for artistic inspiration. It is simple in its construction – only three pattern pieces – easy to fit, and effortless to wear. The uniquely curved hem adds elegance to this staple piece.
