Pomegranate is a really simple and fast to make top. There are no darts, no closures, and no facing pieces, and it looks beautiful on all body shapes!

A self faced cowl neck gives Pomegranate its signature, whilst the kimono sleeves add a balanced, smart casual feel. The bias cut allows the cowl to drape beautifully and the fabric to fit flatteringly to the body.

To make Pomegranate you need a lightweight drapey fabric, and matching thread – and that’s all!


Sewing Level

Pomegranate is perfect for confident beginners who are ready to try bias cut sewing, all the way to experienced dressmakers who will be able to whip this up in under an hour. With only two pieces and very simple sewing instructions, this is the perfect pattern to dip your toe in the bias cut garment pool.

  • Working with bias cut fabric
  • Bias binding facings

Fabric Suggestions

Viscose/Rayon is my favourite choice for Pomegranate but lightweight satins and chiffon also work well. The more stable your fabric is on the bias, the higher your cowl will be, whilst a loosely woven fabric will create a much deeper cowl (like the marbly chiffon example above). Any fabric that holds its shape won’t create the desired cowl, and due to the bias cut it’s best to avoid any directional prints.

Supplies Needed

This pattern doesn’t require anything except for fabric and thread. The amount of fabric you require depends on the size you’re making and the width of the fabric:
