Merchant & Mills : The Gyo Top & Dress Pattern
The Japanese inspired lines of the Gyo make a neat and decisive statement. Wear as an evening dress or as cool and beautiful summer wear.
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner
Sizes: This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including sizes 6 – 18.
*See images for more sizing information and fabric requirements.
Suggested Fabrics: Suitable for light to medium weight woven cloth such as linen, double gauze or cotton poplin.
Using a crispy tightly woven cloth will make a boxy sculptural top, whereas linen will give you something much softer and flowing.
Don’t use anything too thick as the skinny strap needs to be turned through.
The top takes little fabric so it’s a great excuse to use something special.
