Genoveva Top Sewing Pattern

(1 customer review)

$14.00 AUD

Level: Advanced Beginner



The Genoveva Top is the perfect blend of glamour and ease. It has a beautiful shape and statement flutter sleeves, plus a relaxed fit so you can wear it all day in complete comfort. It is named after the Genoveva Azure butterfly – a beautiful and intriguing butterfly native to South Australia.

The Genoveva has pleats at the shoulder and dramatic, butterfly-inspired sleeves. Choose between a full length, swing-style top with a gentle hi-lo hem, or an elasticated crop. There is also a separate pattern piece for those who require a full bust adjustment.

The Genoveva is designed for lightweight woven fabrics with some drape. Viscose, rayon and silk are all perfect. Stiffer, lightweight woven fabrics such as cotton poplin or linen will make a dramatic, sculptural top.

This pattern sits somewhere between advanced beginner and intermediate. It is not complex and is a relatively quick sew, but has a few interesting techniques involved.

This pattern used our female/curve fit measurement chart and goes from XXS – 7XL

    This is my absolute favourite Waves and Wild pattern, I have made this 3 times now each time with a different fabric giving a totally different look to the overall piece. It is a simple enough pattern, providing that you have basic sewing skills. I have had so many compliments wearing the Genoveva top. It’s a very easy wear, either formally in the office or casually with shorts
