Bellissa Tucked Hem Top
This cute top is designed to be a looser fit and with the hemline sitting above the hips. The top will measure approximately 2” larger around the standard bust measurements. You will have the option of either an elasticated or drawstring hem to allow the hem to fold under and give a tucked effect.

Sizes S,L,2XL and M,XL,3XL are separate patterns, you will receive both for all sizes.
I have used 100% Mercerised Cotton yarn in DK size for this pattern and a 4mm hook. I recommend using a yarn which will give a nice clear stitch definition for this project.
You will need: Approx. 500-1000g yarn depending on top size & yarn, Optional for hemming - a length of 5mm flat woven elastic (28-44” depending on size), 2 small safety pins, a sewing needle and thread. (simple drawstring option just using the main yarn also given)
