I'm so excited to bring you the free sewing pattern this month for the Waterfall Top. I LOVE this top so much that I think it really shows in my face in these photos. Wearing it just makes me smile. I've got a bright pink one and one in mint and white stripes too – sometimes a plain t-shirt just doesn't cut it!

- Video tutorial too!
Beginner. If you can sew a straight line, you can sew this top. Experience in adding elastic and working with knits might be useful, but don't worry I'll show you how to do it and what stitches to use. There is a tutorial video which will take you through everything.
I highly recommend reviewing the article on Sewing with Stretch Knits before you undertake this project.
Where can you get the Waterfall Top pattern ?
Choosing your fabrics
You’ll need a fabric with a good stretch. Having tested with different fabrics, I think a lighter weight one works best. If you have a thicker cotton jersey, it can get pretty thick around the middle with all the ruching, and the lighter fabric drapes better too.
Below are a few suggestions of fabrics that would work very well with this pattern.

What sizes are available?
This top can be made in any size – I'll show you how.
Is it easy to sew?
Honestly, things don't get much easier than this! Create something that looks really different and individual and it's not difficult and doesn't use a ton of fabric. You'll need a yard of fabric and a yard of narrow elastic, some matching thread and a few minutes of your time.
