This pattern has all the fundamental elements of Vionnet’s approach to pattern cutting - a simple interesting cut, ease of wear, and the look is driven by the choice of fabric - not the construction. A single pattern piece with only side seams and no shoulder seams. It has no closures and softly drapes over the body to sit on the hips - all the characteristics that guided Vionnet’s work.


Allow approximately 1.5 yards of 45” fabric. If you are working with wider fabric this will allow you some room to play with extending the sleeve or entire length of top. This is a low waste pattern so please use the extra fabric scraps to make bias binding for the edges or other details if you choose. For the toile (sample) choose a fabric which will drape such as a rayon challis or other soft fabric, muslin is too crisp.

Sizing and Fit

Pattern includes the sizes - small, medium, and large (bust 39.5 to 43.5 finished garment width). The bottom of the top sits around the lower waistline. Theoretically this pattern will fit any size. For tips on how to increase the size of the pattern to fit your measurements via the slash and spread method please refer to our online tutorials linked here.
For larger sizes wider fabric and possibly more yardage is recommended. You may need to incorporate piecing.

Suggested Fabric:

Silk crepe de chine works really well, marquisette, soft silks, cotton voile, rayons, batiste, chenille, pongee, or experiment with your choice - soft or sculptural. Also, great for large bold prints and textural weaves, something special and especially beautiful. This pattern is all about the fabric!
