La La top free Sewing Tutorial

Here I share a tutorial on making a jersey tie-sleeve top.

Introducing the ‘La La top’…

This top was born out of the desire to make something freehand (no sticky tape pdf jigsaws), quickly and well fitted, fuelled by the nervous energy that comes the evening before A-level results day (yup it only takes an evening!).

It features peep/key-hole sleeves which are fastened with wide ties. And they are built in so no fiddly sleeve insertion! It is patternless and created around the shape of a pre-owned fitted t-shirt.

Ok, so here is how you can make one too!


  • 1-2m jersey fabric (mine used 1m since I could fit both top pieces on side by side, this depends on your fabric width and final top width)
  • Matching thread

Step 1 – Cutting out pieces freehand

Step 2 – Sewing La La

Infographics not viewing well/want to save or print for later?

It would make my day to see your La La! 😊

Please note: You are free to make and distribute as many of these tops as you like but please don’t put my infographics directly on your website, instead link to here. Thanks!

If you fancy bumping up my subscribers😄:

I’ve just got back from Soul Survivor Camp. It was super encouraging to be worshipping God with so many other young people (there were 10,000 in total with youth leaders!) and has motivated me to be more open about my faith.
