    Easy Peasy!

    I really like this pattern. I made a jumper (minus the pockets) out of a grey cotton jersey knit for this winter. I extended the length right down to my hips to keep me warm. I also unfinished the neckline to give it a different modern look. It's so comfy! I wear it all the time with my black hoody puffer vest. It's the best! I already have plans to make another 😊

    very stylish top

    I saw a great photo of this pattern on a blog and then read another review on blogless ana's blog. I had to have the pattern and made it up very quickly (twice) in blue and white striped jersey. I found it very easy to follow the instructions and the sizing was spot on. I don't fold my sleeves back but leave the border down which makes a nice statement. I didn't include the bottom border with vertical stripes, for me it was a bit too much. I have made one version slightly longer than the pattern and another a longer again, to wear over white jeans. I love the pattern and will make it again for certain.

    Great summer pattern

    I love the Bento Tee pattern. The sizing was perfect, instructions very detailed and the resulting tee just looked great. I will be making another one soon. I used an interlock jersey. The fabric really suits this pattern. This was my first Oliver + S pattern. I will be ordering more in the future. I think I will stick with the paper patterns though. The PDF version is a lot of work, although I can just print out another … decisions decisions

    Fun Top
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 04/17/2016
    Bought this pattern as an experiment because I was not experienced at sewing with knits. Tried the short sleeved version first and was amazed at how well it came together. Very well drafted and I love how the cuff on the sleeve works. Was a little worried about sewing the neckband but the instructions were great and the result was too. Charming little shirt!

    This is a great pattern. Just a joy to sew. I have made a few in both long and short sleeves, as well as heavier and lighter weight knits. All worked great. They are in style and fun to wear. The pattern offers lots of opportunities to customize and I will definitely make more.

    I enjoyed every step of sewing this shirt and I plan to make more because the pattern allows almost infinite variations.... but this is a consistent quality in your models and I love them for that reason! Thank you, you improve my creativity.

    I loved the pattern and I've made it three times. Twice right by the pattern and once with added length on the band. I did do the pocket step that was in your instructions to do on the sewing machine on my serger using the "inside corner" technique that we teach in our mastery class. It worked great! I am enjoying using your patterns.

    Useful top
    Reviewed by on 11/02/2014
    A very straightforward and fast make. I used a wine coloured merino fabric and very pleased with how it turned out. I shortened mine, but kind of wish I hadn't, it turned out slightly short. It is the sort of top you can wear in lots of different ways and with lots of different fabrics. I know there will be a lot more of these in my wardrobe. Here's a peep at my version: http://stitchynotions.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/convenient-bento-tee.html
