Gena Crop Sewing Pattern
The Gena [ jeh-nuh ] crop is a fully lined and reversible tank, so you can enjoy two tops in one! The straps cross over each other at the back, which is slightly open. Style with shorts or a maxi skirt, layer over a dress, or pair with high-waisted pants.
This pattern includes 22 different sizes ranging from 31 inch / 79 cm - 64 inch / 163 cm chest circumference.
*This pattern does not include bust darts and is quite boxy. If you prefer a more fitted garment, instructions are included for drafting your own bust darts so you can achieve a custom fit for your shape.
Included are 3 files: one PDF file for the sewing instructions, one PDF file formatted for printing the pattern at home (scaled to 7.5x10” (19.05 x 25.4 cm) to allow for a margin that works for both US letter size and A4 (20 pages), and one PDF formatted to be printed at a copy shop (A0 - 33.1 x 46.8 inches / 841 x 1189 mm). When printing your pattern, make sure that you set the print scale to 100%, and make sure “scale to fit” is not selected. Print the first page. Measure the test square to make sure the scale is correct before printing the remaining pages.
Each size is separated into its own layer. This way you can print only what you need.
1) Open Adobe Acrobat Reader.
2) Select the Layers Panel.
3) Click on they eye icon to unselect a layer.
Click it again to display it. Click to unselect all layers that are not your size if you wish to hide them.
Assembling your pattern (if printing at home):
Each pattern piece page will have a letter & number in the bottom right corner. Once all pages have been printed, arrange them in 5 rows (4 columns). The first row should include pages A1, A2, A3, A4, and the second row should include pages B1, B2, B3, B4, etc. Either trim or fold along the rectangular borders and tape all of the pieces together so that the pattern piece lines match up.
Once your pattern is taped, select your size from the size chart included in the instructions, and carefully cut out your size.
