|Pattern Description: |
Tops with various neckline details and cup sizes, with or without sleeves.
12-20; I made size 12.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy and straightforward to put together.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Love a pattern with cup sizes to get a better fit. I thought the frills and floral were going to be too much for me, but I love wearing this top in the summer. Other reviewers have noted that the pattern is big, and I cut a size smaller than I normally would thanks to their advice, but I am enjoying the loose fit as a change from my usual preference of something more fitted- it's been great for the hot weather.
Gorgeous Liberty tana lawn from Tessuti- my first time sewing Liberty fabrics, and they are lovely- soft and fine. The top has been getting lots of compliments- the fabric is just so vibrant and summery.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Yep, made the back in one piece and left out the button closure- thanks for the tip from other reviewers!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yep, the fit is nice and it's such a useful wardrobe basic- have already got my eye on the new Liberty cottons at Tessuti, and plan to make one with a keyhole front and contrast bias binding at the neck.
A great little pattern!
