Ines — V-neck Top Sewing Pattern (Free PDF)

EXCLUSIVE - Only At Fabrics-Store


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.

I was not sure that I liked the neckline but once finished I love this top Made of linen fabric, it is relaxed and chic The pattern is perfect since it fits really well Neckline length sleeve length in short the cut is perfect I just made the S for the top and M for the bottom and I shortened it by 5cm in height I wanted it to be comfortable Really delighted Thank you thank you for this free pattern

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!

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!

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 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.
