The Miami Wrap Top Pattern
Wrap style tops are super popular right now. The Ellie and Mac Miami Wrap Top Pattern has a criss-cross front that is fun and flirty. And the sash tie is so cute! I think you’ll really like this sewing pattern, read on to find out more!
I actually made a few modifications to mine. The original pattern is lined, but in the interest of saving fabric, I hemmed all the way around it instead and left the sleeves off. Lining it does give it a more professional look on the inside though. If you don’t have a coverstitch and still want to keep it unlined, you could cut a band for around the neckline instead.
This Miami Wrap Top Pattern has some great options. It can either be a crop top or a peplum style – like what I made.
It also has 4 different sleeve options including
- regular sleeves,
- flutter sleeves,
- double flounce sleeves,
- and triple layered peasant style sleeves.
I guess it’s 5 styles if you include leaving the sleeves off as I did!
I used rayon spandex I picked up from Girl Charlee (an online fabric store). I only had a yard of it and managed to make the whole top from that yard, so exciting when the pattern pieces fit!
The peplum portion is slightly gathered and attached to the bottom half of the top with the seam at the natural waist. Be sure to adjust for your natural waist length if needed (I added one inch for mine as my side waist is around 9 inches).
The sash has an ingenious way to keep the wrap portion closed. And the instructions are very detailed, so that part is covered in the pdf pattern file!
