The Day-To-Night Drape Top. Wear it tonight! (and get a surprise package)

Seems like I’m always running behind schedule. Well this time I had a proper excuse. Friday afternoon I had an allergic reaction to avocado (and I’ve eaten tons before with out any problems) and went to the hospital for the night. I’m okay now – but still a bit tired (might also be the antihistamine:-)). Anyway It was a scary experience and all this let to the release of this pattern being delayed – but now it’s here.

And I’m very happy to present:

The MariaDenmark Day-To-Night Drape Top!

Find it at and on Craftsy! Oh, and BTW – it’s at an introductory price through the month of December!

MariaDenmark 103 - Day-To-Night Drape Top E-book Pattern

If you liked the free Kirsten Kimono Tee Pattern, you are going to absolutely love this one! This top is as easy, fast (takes me about 65 minutes cutting to hemming) and uses very little fabric (under 1 yard – in all sizes!).

I wear it with jeans and a knit cardigan with flat boots during the day (it is winter here, after all) and put on some heels and a bunch of silver bracelets for night on the town (well. okay, for a party with friends. I rarely go out for a night on the town…:-))

{Line Drawing or Sketch of the top. I’m gradually getting better at this drawing stuff}


Anyway. What do you think? How would you wear it?

I’m loving this pattern. Also… The sleeves from the Birgitte Basic Tee fit perfectly with this pattern, so if you like, you can make all kinds of new combinations!

The teal top in the pattern photo is made from a modal jersey and back neckline and armholes are finished with a fun silver Fold Over Elastic.

The brown/gold version is made from a rayon/polyester blend containing 5 % spandex and back neckline and armholes are finished with invisible elastic.

And now to the really fun part: The first four people who review this pattern at either their blog, Patternreview, Craftsy or Kollabora and leave me a comment about it (with a link) in this post will recieve 1 free MariaDenmark pattern of their own choice + a nice surprise sewing package!

They are found! Have a look at the posts from Scruffy Badger, Sew Busy Lizzy, Suzy Bee Sews and Darry Do!

Now get sewing! You’ll be wearing your new top in no time! Find the pattern at and on Craftsy!

What do you think?

    Maria, it’s so crazy you had a reaction to avocado so suddenly. Happy to hear you’re feeling better though. The new pattern is lovely and it great you can combine the sleeves from the other tee.

    Oh my goodness!! I just committed for a no-buy fast for a year and you have to come up with my most fav. design ever!! I love, love, love a cowl neck top!

    So impressed with your drafting skills, Maria!

    Love it! I love the fact that the Birgitte sleeves work with it too! I’ll be wearing the new top with jackests and slacks for work. I’m glad you’re feeling better after the avocado scare. It’s just weird how food allergies can pop up all of a sudden.

  4. Vicki Kate

    Thank you! That is the perfect top to replace a RTW that died over the summer! Not sure when I’ll be able to make it though… Sorry to hear about the sudden avocado reaction too, hope you’re feeling better now?

    Sorry to hear about avocado scare!
    DD has some anaphylatic allergies that scared the shit out of us… After 8 months we tracked it to food dyes and colors..

    You’ve come up with another winner, Maria, I LOVE this pattern & you can see that I’ve made my (first) one long sleeved …
    But I can imagine some gorgeous Spring time sleeveless ones also. I do have a weakness for cowl necks as there is something glamorous & flattering about them. As always I am in awe of your drafting skills …& I have also just made another Birgitte & yet again it fits SO WELL!!

  7. Scruffy Badger

    Hello again, I thought I’d posted a comment & then realised I hadn’t sympathised about the demon avocado – so returned – sorry that you had such a serious reaction, but glad that you are OK now.
    My other comment raved about this pattern …in case it’s got lost somewhere …I couldn’t resist your challenge & whipped one up with long sleeves today – here it is …
    But if this is a bit duplicated, sorry!
