The Vetiver Top

You can purchase this pattern here:

The Vetiver Top is a simple, short-sleeved blouse with two hem options. Both styles feature a round neckline, narrow buttonstand and a bodice that is gently shaped by princess seams. The resulting silhouette is comfortable yet feminine and can be dressed up or down depending on your fabric choice. View A has a ruffled hem that ends approximately 3cm (1 1/8″) below the navel and is perfectly paired with high-waisted pants or shorts .View B is longer in length and has a standard hem that can be tucked in or left out depending on your preference.


Light to medium weight wovens such as linen / linen blends, hemp, tencel, and chambray. If selecting medium weight fabric it is recommended that the fabric has some measure of drape. View A is best suited to lightweight woven fabrics and / or those with some drape such as rayon, voile, lawn or linen blends. View B will work in all the fabrics already specified as well as in medium weight fabrics without drape such as shirting cotton, chambray, linen and the like.
