3 Easy Steps to Make a Casual Draped Top

"This casual draped top has been one of my favorite go-to basics for a few years now. With spring in full swing, I thought I’d add the project to the blog and share it! Making a draped top doesn’t have to be fussy or complicated. With just a few little hacks in the pattern, you can create a more elegant asymmetrical look without the frustration of excessive gathers and complicated patterns. This casual draped top is actually made from just a basic square. The draped look comes from where you place the neck, armholes, and bottom hemline. Are you ready?"

  1. Lay your fabric out on a table. Fold it in half and cut it into a large square.

  2. Mark your neckline, armholes, and bottom hemline with Tailor’s Chalk or sewing pins. (Scroll down to see the handy little picture of where to place your holes to create a draped effect.)

  3. Sew around your square making sure to avoid closing up your marked holes.
