Kobe Top — Papercut Patterns

Following on from our Kobe Dress in black lace, we decided to show you the top variation of this popular Papercut Patterns style. We made ours up in a beautiful white cotton lace, perfect for pairing with blue denim for a casual long weekend vibe!

Kobe Dress by Papercut Patterns using our Botanical Corded Lace – Ivory

The Kobe is available as a PDF download from Papercut Patterns and paper copies are available in all of our stores and in our online collection. The sewing instructions for the dress and top are basically the same, except for the slightly different hem construction. Check out our post featuring the dress last week for more info and details!

We made our top up in a size XXS for Briar from our HQ team and found that this was a pretty good fit! Briar’s measurements were similar to Annelise's and actually matched the size XS, but from our experience Papercut Patterns generally run a little on the bigger side, so we referred to the finished bust measurement and sized down to be safe. We used the recommended 1.4m of lace and ended up trimming a little of the sleeve length as well as shaping off our back hem for a smooth finish around the hip.
