The Vetiver Top Pattern Expansion

You can purchase this expansion pack here:

PLEASE NOTE: This is an expansion pack which provides additional pattern pieces which supplement the Vetiver Top pattern. You will also need to have the Vetiver Top pattern in order to complete this garment. You can get the Vetiver pattern here:

The Vetiver Top Pattern Expansion gives you the option of adding long sleeves and / or a Peter Pan Collar to your Vetiver Top. If you, like me, have found yourself regularily reaching for your Vetiver Tops throughout the warmer months and have wished for a winter-friendly version of this pattern, then this expansion is for you.

The Peter Pan Collar can, of course, be interchanged between short or long-sleeved styles adding a cute detail to compliment the feminine lines of the top.
