Pattern Description: Your new favourite staple has just arrived. Make a scoop neck high low top with banded sleeves, or great crossing back interest, and three v neck tops with lace flutter sleeves, studs or peekaboo lace in neckline

Pattern Sizing:XXS to XXL

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes apart from the fact that I made it with a round neck instead of V.

Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I love the fact that the pattern starts at XXS so I was able to use it for my daughter who's 9. Not sure if my dislike is with the pattern or just because the lace was so horrible to work with

Fabric Used:Jersey fabric & stretch lace

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I changed the neckline from V neck to a round neck

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I will definitely be making this again - fabric on order to make one for elder daughter & a dress length one for younger daughter. Hoping to make one for myself too at some point.

Conclusion: My daughter was delighted with her top & has worn it several times already. Big sister (13) has also borrowed it to wear to a disco so I think we can say it's definitely a hit!
