Sew a Ruffle Top: Sagebrush Top
The Sagebrush Top is an elegant and easy-to-sew blouse that is a joy to make and wear. The Sagebrush is designed for woven fabrics and looks great in breezy fabrics like cotton voile, as well as more structured fabrics like a crisp linen. 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.

- Ivory Crinkle Cotton - With a soft hand and lightly crepe texture, this fabric is a step above your typical shirting fabric. This cotton has a softer drape than a typical poplin, but still has a nice crispness. And in a bright ivory, it will pair beautifully with leggings or skinny jeans for a stylish and easy look.
- Canyon Pink Viscose Dobby Dot - At first blush (pun intended), this fabric looks like hammered silk. The small dots, created in the dobby weave, give it a lovely texture and depth that catches the light just so to sparkle and shine. The rose color is simply gorgeous too. With a little more peach than a true pink, its muted hue gives it a sophisticated quality that contrasts nicely with the more bohemian style of the dress. Plus, since it's viscose, it will skim across your skin and feel absolutely amazing to wear!
