Ines — V-neck Top Pattern, Type - PDF


The Ines top is a pretty basic boxy top with cropped length, side slits and an interesting lapped V-neck placket. It is simple in its look, construction and pairs with just about anything. The V placket is also easy to sew but it requires a bit of accuracy to get it perfect. In this tutorial, we will show you how to create this lapped V-neckline for a perfectly finished top.

We love our IL019 and 1C64 medium weight linen for this pattern. For something a little more lightweight and breezy, you can use our IL020 lightweight linen.

I have been unable to find the directions to this top. I'm having trouble figuring out the placket placement of the shirt. Do you have a link to the directions? I didn't find it by searching on the blog. Thanks.

Ines — V-neck Top Pattern Thanks so much I love it

Roxane • September 28, 2019

Absolutely love this pattern. My first time doing V neck. Thank you for the pattern so I can turn this beautiful Gray Pinstripe 100% linen Middle into a much wearable everyday top. With the help of your tutorials, I am quite happy to complete this project without major mistakes!

I combined the Augustina and Ines patterns to produce this boxy top with cuffed sleeves and V neck placket. Made with the antique white softened middle weight linen here. For some reason, although I prewashed the linen and followed the instructions, I ended up with a top that is bigger than the usual Augustina. Perfect garment for the hot and sticky days.

The Ines Top I liked the pattern. At first I thought it was like a scrub shirt, but by the time I hemmed it all up, its a cute shirt with my rolled up or croped jeans. And the center packet wasn't a dread! Thank you for the learning experience from pdf download/printing/ the whole works was enjoyable. Thank you! My orders have come in perfect shape also

I enjoyed making this shirt. The V-neck was a little finicky and may take some practice to get it right. I reduced the depth of the V-neck and lengthened the length of the shirt so it's not a crop top. I also make the sleeves a bit longer. I look forward to getting lots of wear out of it. So comfortable!
