    Casual dress
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 01/13/2022
    I am looking forward to sewing this dress with a fine linen fabric for the coming summer. It is just the style I wanted with a little cap sleeve and a nice length for older ladies. The pattern came neatly packaged and arrived in good time. Thanks Again!

    Great pattern but limited sizing.
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 01/05/2022
    I love the look of this pattern, I wish it had extended sizing. I liked it enough to buy it and redraft/fix it to fit me but many sewists can't do this. I would love to see the size range expanded. I also wish the AO pattern was separated from the print at home file. Most pattern companies do this. I emailed and was given instructions on how to do it myself, but I had trouble figuring it out so printed and taped instead. I loathe taped patterns and probably won't buy more patterns from you until you provide a separate file for AO printing.

    Excellent fit!
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 11/26/2021
    I find that the sizing of these patterns is so reliable across the range … once you have determined your measurements I find the fit of the finished garment is so accurate … often I err on the larger size because I am nervous the finished garment won’t fit … but with these patterns I never have to worry!! This is such a great pattern! If you follow the instructions you can’t go wrong!!

    This is my very first garment I've sewn and the only part I struggled with was attaching the back to the yoke. The instructions were super clear; the necessary techniques easy to find tutorials for. I need to add some mods to the muslin to make the armscye a little smaller and the neckline a little deeper. In my inexpert execution, the neckline for my size is just small enough that I need to take my hair down to get my head through, so I'm going to try again with another muslin before moving on to my real fabric.

    Fira tops
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 11/23/2021
    I made three tops out of this pattern. The first two I made with cotton, one with a beautiful Japanese cotton and the second one with a LIberty tana lawn. I added on the sleeves from the Verdun top to make them long-sleeved, and that worked well, except that I needed to add width at the top of the Verdun sleeve to fit it. The third one I made short-sleeved out of a beautiful rayon jacquard. The fit was a little tricky, as I measure for a size 8 and so I made that, but it was too tight. I added width to each side seam but kept the rest of the top as is. I love the style of this top with the v-neck and the gathers at the sleeve and back yoke. I gave it four instead of five stars due to the fit.

    First dress in linen
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 11/22/2021
    This isn't a style I would usually be drawn to let alone make, but I loved the look of the top - and instead made the dress! I have a pear shaped body, the shoulders and neckline are what drew me to the pattern and actually looks great too balance out my hips. I need to lower the bust darts, but other than that it fit perfectly and I get great feedback when I wear it out. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, the dress comes together simply. I'm looking forward to making the alteration and making the top (or 3) next.

    Fira top
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 11/20/2021
    Loved the style of this top - a bit different and the neckline fitted very well. It was a little big for me at the upper back but I do have narrow sloping shoulders. It was quick to make so I made another one straight away (and gave the first one to a friend who loved it) and made adjustments and love it. Already have another one planned and maybe a dress.
