XS - XXXL

Looking to expand your wardrobe with a true gem that's a breeze to make? With a loose cut and two V necklines – Ida's your pattern. Ida has a shallow V at the back and a deeper one at the front and both are finished with facings. Don’t care to feel that exposed at the front, or would you simply like to show off a little more back? Just wear the top 'backwards’! Honestly, life can be so simple if you let it be. And Ida is simplicity personified, with straight cuffs that give it an understated, yet charming touch. Pair it with high-waisted trousers or a calf-length skirt or... lengthen it into a comfy dress! 

Would you rather make an Ida Dress? You can find the pattern here.

Fabric advice

Ida can be made in just about any fabric, it will suit a stiffer option like denim or fabric with a fluid drape – think viscose or polyester crepe, etc. From pastels and neutrals to a bright splash of colour to a funky design – just go wild! If your heart is set on using a knit, be sure to select one that has enough body and isn’t too flimsy. Interlock and French Terry are two good options.
