 Klimt Top

The vest top is your perfect wardrobe companion !

That famous little vest top works all year round: in summer with a pair of shorts, in winter under a jacket , or for more dressy occasions…

We wanted to play with the lining to create a double length which amplifies its fluidity.

Countless variations can be added to this very simple base: a lace yoke on the neckline and/or on the sides; a decorative button tab; with or without  ruffles on the front or sides..

Mix it up however you like, it’s more than a dozen different models you can create!

The finesse of the Austrian painter Klimt, and his art of exalting women (hinting at the delight of a woman’s shoulder, for example) inspired us to name this piece.


To sew it, we’re making life easier with:
  • The seam allowances already included (to avoid any headache)
  • Pattern pieces which aren’t superimposed (for easy reading)
  • Video tutorials on our YouTube channel, to accompany you through process of making each piece (so you can sew at your own pace)
