Cashmerette Club bonus pattern variation: the Kineton Top!

Surprise! It’s a bonus pattern variation! Make a fun and trendy crop top with the Kineton Top, a variation of this month’s Cashmerette Club pattern.

The Kineton Dress is a floaty woven dress that’s perfect for summer. And now you can get even more out of your Kineton with the Kineton Top variation! The Kineton Top is a trendy crop top with an elasticated waist and your choice of short puff sleeves or long sleeves with a wrist flounce. This pattern variation is available in sizes 0-32 and cup sizes C-H for Cashmerette Club members only.

The Kineton Top pattern download includes the Kineton Dress pattern pieces and instructions for how to adjust them to make a crop top. You’ll also need to download the Kineton Dress instructions. (Club members can do so here.)

Jenny is wearing a size 20 G/H. Her measurements are high bust 44″, full bust 49″, waist 42.5″, and hip 47″, and she is 5′ 6”.

An elasticated crop top for curves!

Anyone can wear a crop top, no matter their size! If you’ve been wanting to try the crop top look but haven’t found one in your size and cup size, the Kineton Top is just the ticket.

The Kineton Top variation features:

  • Bust darts designed for full busts in cup sizes C-H
  • Bias bound v-neckline and a complementary gentle v-neckline in the back
  • An elasticated waist (for all-day comfort) that sits above the belly button
  • Two sleeve options: a long bishop sleeve with an elasticated wrist flounce and a short puff sleeve
  • Optional center seam topstitching detail

Make your Kineton Top in a lightweight woven fabric with drape such as rayon, silk or cotton lawn.

How to style your Kineton Top

Wear your Kineton Top with high-waisted pants (like the Calder Pants, as shown on Jenny) or a maxi skirt for a look that’s sure to impress. Here are a few of our favorite crop top ideas from ready to wear fashion:
