The Esme top is a 50s-inspired batwing sleeve with a variety of options so you can really make this your own. From cuffed long or short sleeves, to long-line or regular bodice lengths to shawl or V-necklines, Esme has something for everyone and every season.

The Shawl Collar variation looks great teamed with a pair of denim slacks or cropped pencil jeans for a retro Teddy Girl vibe. Alternatively, tuck a long-line, V-necked Esme into your favorite high-waisted skirt for the perfect casual look.

Esme has something for everyone and every season. A quick and satisfying to make, it’s the perfect palette cleanser between more involved projects.

Skill Level: Confident Beginner

Recommended Fabric: Medium-weight knit fabric. The long-sleeved Esme works well in drapey knits with less structure.

All variations (bindings, shawl collar, long sleeves, cuffs) can be made with the same fabric as the body, or contrasting fabric for colour and pattern blocking potential.
