Named after the sparsely populated and northern-most of the British Virgin Islands, boat neck ANEGADA is a semi-fitted super basic with an unconventional feminine touch.
View A features a wider neckline, displaying a little extra shoulder. The raw edge allows the fabric to roll over nonchalantly, exposing the inside of the fabric and creating a cowl neckline, depending upon the knit of the fabric. View B is a true everyday boat neck with mini box pleats. Depending on your choice of fabric, this universally flattering single pattern can truly take you from the gym to the opera and is sure to become an absolute favorite in any capsule wardrobe.
This pattern was drafted for a B/C cup and approx. 168 cm or 5ft.6in. Step-by-step illustrated instructions assume you'll be using a regular sewing machine, but you may opt to use a serger if you have one.
GENERAL INFO This is a computer drafted, print and cut, layered PDF pattern, printable in black/white or color. The pattern includes all sizes, but the size views can be easily toggled on or off in order to print either all sizes or only the size(s) you want to make.
SIZING + FABRIC
This pattern works best with light- to medium-weight knits with some drape, such as jersey, bamboo or rayon jersey, interlock, t-shirt weight merino, French terry and lightweight sweat-shirting, with 25% to 100% stretch. Fabric requirements are based on a size 10. They assume you are using a one-directional print as well as the same fabric for the neck, arm- and/or waistbands as the bodice + sleeves. Less fabric may be needed for smaller sizes, solids or two-directional prints.
