The Swing Top is a loose fitting top with dropped shoulders, a Henley neck and button placket. It also features a shirt tail front and cropped back, gathered into the back yoke. We have paired it with 101 trousers in the picture, but it also pairs beautifully with our Eve trousers or Heroine jeans because of the high waist.

This is a style that used to be available in our RTW collection, and we've made it a pattern as so many of you wanted to make your own!

Please note the sizing is different to normal, it is grouped into XS (6), S (8 - 10), M (12 - 14), L (16 -18).

All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless otherwise stated.

Skill level - intermediate.

This PDF pattern is made up of 1 A0 page and 23 A4 pages.

Fabric suggestions - lighter weight woven fabrics, linen and linen blends, cotton chambray, Indian handweaves and block prints, tencel and tencel blends. The more structured the fabric the more sculptural your top will look.

Paper vs PDF

If you order a paper copy you will be sent a printed version of our pattern. If you select PDF, you are purchasing a digital file which will be stored on your account to be downloaded at any time. PDF's will include a tiled, an A0 copy shop file and your instructions. The tiled file can be used on any home printer and stuck together and is compatible with both A4 and US letter paper. Alternatively, you can send off the copy shop file to be printed full size; we can usually recommend someone in your area. If you are in the UK, we would recommend either The Fold Line or Net Printer. The instructions can either be printed at home or simply follow along on your computer or phone.
