 Is it possible to have comfort and style at the same time? With the Arenal Top, the answer is a resounding yes!

Choose the swing bodice with a subtle handkerchief hem, or the fitted bodice with a regular hem. You can also choose between long and 3/4-length sleeves.

Skill Level: Confident Beginner

Recommended Fabric: Primary fabric: Use light to medium weight knit fabric with at least 100% horizontal stretch and 30% vertical stretch. Jersey, viscose knit and stretch velvet with some drape and recovery are good choices. If using a fabric with more or less stretch, you may need to choose a smaller or larger size respectively. If using an extremely drapey knit, such as rayon or bamboo knit, you may need to go down a size and possibly stabilise the neckline with knit fusible interfacing. Avoid very structured knits. Do not use woven fabric.

Contrast fabric: Use light to medium weight knit fabric with similar stretch as the primary fabric. Alternatively, you may use the primary fabric.

Pattern Format: This is a PDF pattern. Included in your download is an A4 file for at home printing, an A0 File for Copy Shop Printing, Projector files and detailed instruction files. 


  • 16″ (41 cm) of 3/8″ or 1/2″ (1 cm or 1.25 cm)-wide straight fusible stay tape (or you may cut your own using lightweight woven fusible interfacing on the straight grain)
