Strata Top Pattern


I designed the Strata to be both a practice of meditation and a canvas for artistic inspiration. It is simple in its construction – only three pattern pieces – easy to fit, and effortless to wear.

The Strata Top pattern is the backbone of your handmade wardrobe and a great pattern for beginners. (The detailed instructions are accompanied by a video sew-along.) The uniquely curved hem adds elegance to this staple piece. Keep things uncomplicated with a version in a slub linen blend, cotton ikat, or silk noil – or use the fabric as your canvas. Try using beloved scraps to piece together your own storied fabric, experiment with natural dyes, or add some sashiko embroidery. Enjoy both the craft and the art.
