The Dawson Top is designed to be a workhorse in your wardrobe. Three necklines and three sleeve lengths make nine total combinations of this design. You can sew a Dawson top for all seasons and countless different styling opportunities. We love this design as a layering top under overalls, dresses, and pinafores. It also looks great paired with your favourite jeans or leggings. Make Dawson in Merino wool for an cozy base layer, or try it in bamboo jersey for a soft and comfy tee. The mock neck view is excellent in a rib knit or sweater knit and can easily be dressed up for office or semi-formal attire. Dawson is quick, easy, and does not require a lot of fabric. This beginner-friendly pattern is one you will surely use again and again!
