The Tessie Tulip Top


The Tessie Tulip Top is a simple long or 3/4 sleeve modern fit tee with a gently flared sleeve hem, scoop neck and beautiful tulip ruffles that cascade from the shoulder or across the neckline. This top can be whimsical or more sophisticated depending on fabric choices.

The top is sized for stretch knits only. The tulip ruffles can be created from something lovely and new or from all of those scraps that collect over time.


Recommended fabrics include cotton/lycra blends, medium weight jersey or interlock. The ruffles can be made from any non-fraying fabric including the above suggestions or try mixing in some velour or lace. Remember that both sides of the fabric will show so it is best to find prints or stripes that are double sided.

Fabric Requirements:


You will also need:

  • Polyester Thread
  • Sharp Scissors or Rotary Cutter & Mat (for neck binding)
  • Ballpoint Needle or Stretch Needle
  • Additional approximately 1/8” yard for tulip ruffles
