PDF Pattern development and production, All Well Box Top Sewing Pattern

by Amelia Greenhall

The All Well Box Top - my second collaboration on producing sewing patterns with All Well (first: All Well Bucket Bag).

Sew your own slow fashion staples. Introducing the All Well Box Top sewing pattern. In four variations, for bust circumference 32-62” (81-157 cm).

The All Well Box Top is a sewing pattern with four distinct variations: the sleeveless box top, the long sleeve box top, the ruffle top, and the box dress. This timeless, foundational sewing pattern comes together quickly, is thoughtfully written, and is FUN to sew from start to finish. The pattern was designed so a complete beginner can use it to make their very first garment or so a seasoned sewist can whip it up quick and have a great time in the process. This pattern is for everyone!

I worked on digitizing Amy's paper pattern drafts and marking up the pattern, as well as collaborating on writing the instructions and reviewing diagrams. Lots of great versions made by talented sewing people on instagram under #allwellboxtop

“I love the spirit of accessibility, creativity, inclusiveness, and experimentation that you've infused into this pattern and associated marketing. I felt like this is a true beginner pattern that a more advanced sewist would find fun and exciting as well.”

“I love making this top. As full-time working mom of two active boys, I struggle to find time to sew. I love this pattern because it's simple and you can sew it up in few hours. Having this top finished, it gave me a dose of happiness!”

— Miwako, Bellevue, WA

“[I loved] how little time it took, the detailed instructions and SUPER useful tips, that the binding piece didn't have to be cut on the bias (LOVE that!), your binding tape/triangle-snip technique (this was the first time I haven't effed up a neckline thanks to your instructions), the structure of the finished piece (the little capped shoulders are so cute), realizing that this pattern and its variations will be a staple in my future sewing!
