Jaime and Amber from Fancy Tiger Crafts take you step-by-step through sewing their iconic Sailor Top.

The Sailor Top is not only flattering for every body type, but it is also great for building skills – you will learn how to make a gathered yoke, insert raglan sleeves, and hem raw edges, amongst many other useful techniques. Download the included pattern and start whipping up this sassy staple.
