Do You Rock and Roll? We Do! With the New PR Top Pattern!By DianeSev on 4/19/13 3:30 PM

Think of the heart of rock and roll…the energy, the movement, the fun. 

All this is captured in the latest PatternReview downloadable pattern…

the Rock and Roll Top!

Rock and Roll Top

Designed by PR founder Deepika and drafted by designer Angela Wolf, this top is a joyful cascade of ruffles on a sleeveless hip-skimming top.  It’s as much fun to make as it is to wear!

Sew it in a solid or patterned knit for day wear, or dance it up with sparkle knit for clubbing.

Download it and print it out on your home computer system.  Or download it and bring it to your local copy center to print out.

Sew the Rock and Roll Top today!

Rock and Roll Top

Suggested Fabrics: Designed for knit fabrics with at least 5% spandex like Annabelle Knit, Rayon/Spandex, Stretch Cotton, Bamboo/Spandex, Jersey Knit, Couture Jersey, Polyester/Spandex.

Sizes: XXS – XL (0 -16)

That would look really cute with a shrug, and a curvy woman could eliminate the top ruffle.

That's a really cute top, I'd love something like that for summer! If it had short sleeves, I could get more use out of it though. And I'm curious about how it will look on those with, ahem, more ample bosoms... sometimes ruffled tops can make us look like a big dining room table! It may be worth an experiment...

Penny, If you prefer, you can trace off the ruffle markings with a tracing wheel and tracing paper. Also for attaching the ruffles, place the ruffle right side down but facing to the top and on the marking line, then stitch and flip. This is so the raw edges are not visible. You could turn the edges under and just topstitch also but you will see the stitching then. I will add a video of construction this top when I get back. That will help.

Printing now. I find the instructions about "slashing the pattern" for marking to be confusing. Also, just how are the ruffles attached? That part is also hard to follow. You have the ruffle piece flipped up, with right side down, sew it, and then flip down, right?

Could an older, curvacious woman wear this? I love it but am not sure it would work for me. Perhaps eliminate the top ruffle?

It's very cute. Unfortunately I'd still have to size it up. Any chance 18 to 24 sizing coming in the future?

I love the look of this, but I don't wear sleeveless tops - any chance for an added on three-quarter sleeve pattern?

I'm sewing mine this weekend! Twinset, the back is plain. There are plenty of ruffles provided in the pattern so if you wanted you could add ruffles in the back.

So cute! But what is the back like? With ruffles or plain?

I've already downloaded and printed out. Can't wait to get started on it though I am not certain where in my line-up it sits just yet.
