The Wylde Top and Dress is that pattern that works for every occasion and all seasons. You will feel as amazing as you will look in it. Between the comfort of the fit, the built in bra so you don’t ever have to wear a real one, and the breeze running through the skirt (though not enough to blow it up…thank you Half Circle Skirt!), you won’t ever want to take off your tops and dresses made from Wylde.
This pattern offers SEVEN sleeve options (plain long and short sleeves, tank option, long and short flutter sleeve, puff sleeve, and a bishop sleeve).
There are also options for a crop top, peplum, knee length skirt, and maxi skirt.
From weddings to hauling your kids to the pool, Wylde has you covered.

All files are PDF files that can be printed at home on Letter or A4 sized paper. Each pattern includes one file for the pattern and print-at-home pieces, and another file containing the copy shop A0 (33.1″ wide) pattern pieces. We’ve placed the pattern pieces on individual layers so you can print only the size(s) you need, saving you on paper and ink.
This pattern is designed for light to medium wight knits with 50% 4-way strech. The Bodice fabric holds it’s hape better with fabrics with great recovery such as Cotton Lycra, Double Brushed Poly, and the like. A higher lycra content will also help with this. For those needing to use the built in bra for support, a Supplex or Athletic Knit fabric would be ideal for the built in bra liner.
