Papercut Patterns - Array Top / Dress
About the Array Top and Dress
The Array is a statement dress or top that offers many variations to suit your personal style. You can choose between a big bell sleeve with elasticated hem, or the wide and slightly flared shape. The dress can be left straight and loose, or you can add the extra-long wrap-around ties to cinch in at your waist. You have the same options for the top, but you can also add an elasticated hem to turn your Array into a cute jumper-like top.
The pattern is in the new Papercut Patterns packaging, which is white (and is thus easier to trace), lighter weight, and made from recycled materials in New Zealand.
For your Array top or dress, use light to medium weight woven or knit fabrics such as cotton, silk, linen, or blends. Also consider medium weight jersey knit fabrics.
