Pattern: Matcha Top
The Matcha by Sew Liberated is a swingy, easy-to-sew top with a stunning, mandarin-inspired neckline. Designed to highlight your gorgeous collar bone and draw the eyes up to your face, it leaves your waist free to move around comfortably. Both sleeveless and sleeved versions feature a unique shoulder construction that visually squares-off and balances your shoulders. The Matcha hits at the hip and is breastfeeding-friendly. Show off your favorite bracelets and bangles with the elbow-length, beautifully angled sleeves, and sew up the sleeveless version to pair perfectly with a cardigan or jean jacket, making it an essential all-season pattern.
