The Gemma Twist combination pattern offers 2 style options.
The Gemma Twist Back Top has a cute and funky back waistline twist feature
with a deep upper area “v” anchored by a pair of self fabric ties.
The Gemma Twist Front Top has a lower front body centre front twist along
with a flattering v-neckline. Both tops have a deep dolman sleeve for ease
of wearing.

(note: this is a downloadable PDF pattern – not available in hard copy)



Another fabulous easy wearing garment the Gemma offers two fashionable and very on-trend distinct looks.

The Gemma Twist Front is a flattering shape with a quirky front twist body with a “V” shaped slim neckband.

The Gemma Twist Back has a bit of sassy-ness about it – a back twist offering a little bit of sexiness while still keeping relatively modest.

The Gemma Twist Tops – both styles – will look great in all weights of light weight jersey type fabrics.
As an added extra feature the Gemma Twist Back Top can also be cut in a light weight soft and drapey woven fabric.

    This is the cutest top! The instructions are clear, and it is not difficult to make. I made a size smaller than what size chart said to account for super stretchy fabric.

    This pattern makes a nice top that you can make in one evening. Dress up or down and it can also be made with a lightweight woven!
