Ashton Top

Originally released alongside the Sewing Society Kit in April 2021, this video contains exclusive hints and tips for making the Helens Closet Ashton Top, including the sleeve expansion pack.

This video is perfect if you already own a copy of the Ashton sewing pattern and the supplies to make it but would like some helpful guidance on sewing it up!

The 40 minute video doesn't replace the instructions that come with the pattern, instead Lauren shares her personal hints and tips that she finds useful to help you make a lovely garment including how to neatly apply bias binding with slippery viscose fabric, how to use forming tape interfacing on slippery fabric, setting in sleeves and much more.

Once you have placed your order, the video link will be included in your order confirmation email. The Ashton Top PDF pattern is available directly from the Helen's Closet website and you can make use of our pattern printing service to have it printed on A0 paper (see below).
