Josie is a sleeveless top with side slits that can be tightened at the waist. We've designed more than one version of this top – our pattern hacks, so to speak. For example, we also created a shorter version, the boxy top. There's also an A-line dress version, the Josie dress.

Fabric adviceWhether you make the Josie top short in a stiff fabric or one with a fluid drape will depend on your body shape and the look you’re going for. Women with a ‘curvy’ body shape ought to retain those soft lines and go for fabric textures that aren’t too bulky or heavy. Fabrics that ‘drape’, such as wool, silk and viscose blends are the most flattering options. Women with a ‘straight’ body shape should go for stiffer fabrics that retain their shape and create clean, straight lines, for example a jacquard, cotton, linen, brocade, etc.
