Self-Care Sewing Kit: Sagebrush Top
The Sagebrush Top is an elegant and easy-to-sew blouse that is a joy to make and wear. The simple design of the top lends itself well to customization. Loose without being baggy, the type of breezy fit you’ll want to wear all summer.
Generous puff sleeves and gathers across the front make it comfortable to move in. The tie at the back neckline makes it simple and cute! The Sagebrush looks great tucked into something high waisted.
In this box, you will receive the pattern, fabric of your choice and all the notions to match your fabric. And don't forget, you can use the pattern over and over again!

- Scalloped Edge Navy Embroidered Voile - A simple nayv voile has been embroidered with an intricate white thread floral, and it is simply a sight to see. The cotton is super light, making it a great choice for a summer top, while the embroidery gives it a couture feel, as if you spent hours hand stitching your dress to perfection. Plus the scalloped edge is instant edge finishing for your ruffles!
- Ochre Eyelet Cotton Double Gauze - Just when you thought double gauze couldn't get any better, we found one with eyelet embroidery! The intricate stitching adds body to the soft fabric and creates a pleasant structure that makes a normally loose and shifty fabric ideal for a more tailored top. The bold color is a burst of sunshine and the floral embroidery is sweet and fun. Plus the airy cotton gauze is cool and dry, a must in the summer heat!
- Charcoal and Gray Gingham Check Linen - Gingham worked for Dorothy and it can work for you! This yarn dye check (each square about 3/8") alternates black and gray threads for a look that is subtle and stunning. The medium drape of the fabric will give some flow, and the dry linen hand will ensure it is cool and breathable as you move into warmer weather.
