“Bethioua” is a simple pattern for sewing a long-sleeved raglan top. The ingenious cut at the back of this shirt invites creative combining of fabrics and colors. The shirt has a loose, gently tailored fit and batwing sleeves. With two different hem variations – rounded or straight, and a variety of fabric combinations, this top is strikingly versatile. Adding darts at the shoulders – and for sizes 44 and larger, at the bust as well – will make for the best fit.
Pattern with sizes 34-44.
You can choose your size with the help of the body measurement charts in the ebook. Compare the pattern pieces with a top that already fits you well.
For size 50 and larger, the shirt is cut a bit longer (it will cover the bottom).
All measurements in the ebook are in cm and inches!
Fabric recommendation: Use a softly draping jersey fabric made from viscose, cotton, or other similar materials. The fit of the top will vary according to the kind of fabric you use.
