Grainline Studio - Corin Top - Sizes 0-18
The Corin is a drapey drop shoulder top with a wide round neckline. The pattern includes two sleeve options – a ruffled cap sleeve and a straight 3/4 length sleeve. An optional gathered elastic detail at the front and back waist adds interest and shaping. While we have have sewn up three views of the pattern, the sleeves and elastic can be combined in any configuration to create 6 different options.
Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, setting sleeves, applying bias facing, sewing an elastic casing, and basic hemming.
