Josie Sway Back Top Tutorial
Cut out all pieces marking any balance marks using tailor’s tacks.

Repeat Step 1 for the lower edge of the Front piece.
Match the two Top Back pieces Right Sides together.
Pin and stitch the neckline and lower edge as shown.
Trim the seam allowance, turn RS out and press. Top stitch 1cm away from the lower edge to neaten.
Lay the Top Back and Front RS together.
Pin and stitch at the shoulder seams.
Finish the seam allowance using zig zag stitch or an overlocker. Press the seams toward the Back. Top stitch 1cm away from the seam line to secure.
