The Ashton Top is a classic woven tank top with a signature A-line shape. It comes with options for a binding finish or an all-in-one facing. Try the cropped view with high-waisted pants or skirts or the hip-length view with jeans or your favorite summer shorts. Ashton also has a D-cup option for sizes 12-30!

The Donovan Skirt is our take on the elastic waist skirt. This has long been the go-to first project for beginners and we wanted to provide a pattern that not only teaches you the skills you need but also results in a modern and classic skirt. The midi-length view with the side slit looks stunning with a simple top, and the just-above-the-knee view has all the summer vibes.

Both of these are just fabulous! And I especially appreciated that the size 12+ sizes are drafted for a D cup. Thank you so much for that! It makes all the difference for me as far as time- and fuss-saving. I can’t wait to get started on a wardrobe full of Ashtons!

Love the patterns! Any chance that the green/white/black fabric shown in the skirt is available somewhere? Thank you1

Thanks Kathy! It was from Blackbird Fabrics. I think it is sold out in the green colorway, but they still may have other colors!

Thanks for your reply! I’ll go to the Blackbird site now….

Just purchased! Is the red linen version lengthened any from the hip length view? It’s what convinced me I needed this in my life 😉

Hi Desa! Thank you so much! The red top has not been lengthened.
