You know we love pattern hacking here at Helen’s Closet. Our patterns are designed to be wearable garments that you will want to make again and again! They are excellent jumping-off points for so many designs and we love seeing you kick things up a notch with our pattern hacks.
When you have a great base pattern like the Ashton Top you can create so many different looks. Nail the fit of the original pattern and then pattern hack to your heart’s content!
Ashton August is going to walk you through how to take this simple tank and make neck and hem variations, dresses, and even jumpsuits! We are also going to look at fun ways to customize your Ashton, like with block-printed fabric or embroidery.
We just had our summer sale, but in case you missed it, you can grab the Ashton Top this month for 20% off using the code ASHTONAUGUST.
Look out for an exciting surprise at the end of the month, too!
We hope you enjoy following along with this series here and on Instagram. Join in Ashton August by sewing Ashton, with or without a pattern hack, and use the tags #ashtontop or #ashtontophack, and tag us @helens__closet.
Let us know in the comments if there is a hack you would love to see us tackle! We are so ready.

I’d love to see an added sleeve – either as a hack or an add-on?
Keep your eyes on the blog for a special surprise!
Is there a sleeve pattern available for the Ashton? I’ll pay whatever for one.
Is there a v-neck hack for this?
Hi! Not yet but I’ll add it to our potential hacks list!
