Amy Barickman® AnyTime Topper - A wrap, shrug, robe, or beach cover-up. This loose fitting, versatile style can go from casual to a cocktail party depending on fabric choice. The quick and easy construction make it as fun to make, as it is to wear. Since the wrong side of the fabric can be visible at the sides of the AnyTime Topper, a yarn dyed woven OR batik or hand-dyed fabric is a good choice. For a softer drape, consider a knit or rayon fabric. The pattern includes two sizes (S-XL), (2X-3X), with mid-hip (short), just below the knee (medium), and mid-calf (long) length options. Inspiring ideas for upcycling fabrics like scarfs and kitchen linens are featured in fifteen color photos. A QR code/link inside the pattern will lead to bonus content which includes a Look Book and video showcasing styling and fabric options we suggest for the project. Pattern includes an eight page foldout booklet with instructions and diagrams for making the AnyTime Topper from yard goods, as well as upcycling instructions for creating a Topper from a scarf or tablecloth, bandanas and cotton toweling.
The Any Time Topper will appeal to quilters, and apparel sewists alike. Add sophistication and flare with this loose-fitting, versatile style that can go from casual to upscale parties depending on the choice of fabric.
