    My Dream Come True Sewing Pattern
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 07/02/2021
    While on a trip to the UK I purchased a top similar to the one in this pattern. I wished I had bought it in every color available. When I saw this pattern I knew I had to buy it. I have made 2 so far, one of each neck style. I am now waiting for my linen delivery to make a few more. It was a pleasure to sew this pattern, totally stress free and great instructions. I also love the neck and hemline options. In my opinion there is NOTHING not to love about this pattern. Thank you for a pattern with wonderful design options including cup sizes and the great instructions

    Nice pattern

    Easy style, easy to make and very nice result. Love the different cup sizes, as with all other patterns I had to move the bust darts, other than that no alterations. True to size and simple and nice to wear.

    I love the wide range of cup sizes. Pattern is well-drafted and sews up beautifully. I like the sewn-down facings - no more facing slip-ups! A nice pallet for beautiful fabric.

    I love this pattern. I made the long sleeved version in cotton. Drop shoulder patterns don’t usually suit me but this one does. I really like the hem facings and the curve from front to the back hem is beautiful. My next one will be lightweight linen, short sleeves.

    My First Pattern from You!

    Loved the easy style, great fit for me. Made short sleeve using two different fabrics....facings were a print and body a pin dot. Easy to follow, happy I ordered. Will make again for sure.

    Another Fun Pattern!
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 06/23/2021
    I knew when I first saw the photos for this pattern that I would like it. Its casual attitude fits my lifestyle, for one thing. And I had a couple fabrics in my stash that I thought would work well with it. (They did!) As a plus, it is pretty easy to sew, with so few pieces. I highly recommend this pattern.

    I absolutely love this pattern. The first one I made was just a little too small (wishful thinking) but fit my good friend beautifully. Then I made one a size bigger with the same cup size and it fit me beautifully! I only had to raise it up a little at the shoulder seam. It was so easy to make and the neck and hem facings add a lot to the classic look. I have some plaid linen to make my next one. Then at the end of summer I'll try the long sleeved version.

  • Errata

    1. In the first printing of this pattern, there was a minor error in the pattern's description on the envelope. The description states that the hem is longer in the front than in the back. The hem is actually longer in the back than in the front. The pattern description on the website is correct.

     

    Determining Which Printing You Have

    As errata are discovered, they are marked for correction in subsequent printings of the pattern. To determine which printing of an instruction sheet or pattern sheet you have, look at the copyright box which appears on each. Toward the bottom of the box, there is a series of numbers.

    The lowest number you see there indicates which printing you have. For example, if the lowest number in the box on the instruction sheet is "2," you have an instruction sheet from the second printing. Any errors in the instructions mentioned for the first printing have been corrected in your version. If the lowest number in the box on the pattern sheet is "1," you have a copy of the pattern sheet from the first printing.

    Pattern sheets and instructions sheets can be printed separately, so be sure to check the errata notices for pattern pieces against the printing number on the pattern sheet and errata notices for instructions against the printing number on the instruction sheet.
