The Gyo£14.50

Availability: in-stock

The Japanese inspired lines of the Gyo make a neat and decisive statement. Wear as an evening dress or as cool and beautiful summer wear.

Skill level; Advanced Beginner

Suitable for light to medium weight woven cloth such as linen, double gauze or cotton poplin. Using a crispy tightly woven cloth will make a boxy sculptural top, whereas linen will give you something much softer and flowing. Don’t use anything too thick as the skinny strap needs to be turned through. The top takes little fabric so it’s a great excuse to use something special.

This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including sizes 6 – 18. Seam allowances are 1.5cm and are included in the pattern.

Our samples in the gallery:
