Would you like to feel like a goddess in the Athena top?





I hinted that I was working on a new pattern, and I finally did it! It is simple to put together, but still cute and unique. I love wearing mine!

The new Athena top is a relaxed but chic raglan sleeve knit or woven top that can be whipped up in an afternoon. The sleeves twist under the arm to create a graceful waterfall and the hem dips in back for a subtle hi-lo effect. The knit version is finished with bands at the neck and arms, while the woven uses bias binding. It is perfect for those ultra-soft drapey jerseys or tissue knits that feel so great to wear. It would also look great in a fluid, silky woven.

FirstAthenaCollageThe pattern comes in XS – XL and is quick and easy to put together, with only 18 printed pages. The new “layers” function allows you to view and print only the size you need. The instructions are fully diagrammed and include finished garment measurements and fit tips to ensure your top comes out great. Hint– it is roomy around the bust and tapers down at the hips, but remains relaxed.

I’m being featured on Pattern Revolution, which is a super cool site full of great info and very supportive of indie designers. I do have a rafflecopter giveaway set up there, so enter to win a copy of the Athena Top there. If you already follow this blog, be sure and enter the giveaway!

The Athena top is now available at GrayDayPatterns.com. Regular price will be $6.95, but for the introductory week it is offered for 20% off with the code FIRSTWEEK until March 21st. In fact, use that code to try out the Sandpoint top, too! I hope you like it and if you make it up, let me know so I can feature you! You could even link it up on Sew It Chic in a Week. How fun!

  1. I love layerd PDFs, thumbs up for that! And I like tops that can be made in both, jerseys and wovens. I think I should go and take a look at the pattern, looks really comfy. 🙂
