The Genoveva Top is the ideal synthesis of elegance and comfort. It has a lovely shape, statement flutter sleeves, and a loose fit so you can wear it all day long without feeling uncomfortable. It is named after the stunning and intriguing Genoveva Azure butterfly, a native of South Australia.
The Genoveva has dramatic, butterfly-inspired sleeves and shoulder pleats. Choose between an elasticized crop or a full-length swing top with a soft hi-lo hem. For those who need a complete bust adjustment, there is a separate pattern piece as well.
This pattern sits somewhere between advanced beginner and intermediate. It is not complex and is a relatively quick sew, but has a few interesting techniques involved.
Recommended Fabric: : Lightweight woven fabrics are required. Fabrics with good drape are best as they will move around the body nicely. Rayon or viscose blends are ideal. Stiffer lightweight fabrics such as cotton poplin can be used to create a dramatic, sculptural garment
