  1. Daniel (verified owner)

    Pretty simple pattern, easy to follow and assemble

  2. Leanne (verified owner)

    Love it !! Easy pattern to follow – I added top stitching to neckband , and omitted cutting 2 neckbands and 2 waistbands by cutting on fold … apart from that – super easy .. lovely fit !!

  3. onesimpleinspiration (verified owner)

    I purchased this pattern a little while ago and just now made it…I am totally in love with it! It’s quick, easy and awesome results! I will be making a few more versions of this top!!

  4. rloharris (verified owner)

    I love this pattern, every lightweight-midweight jersey suits this pattern, I even tried it in a lightweight scuba. the neck band is neat and stylish, it was quick to make

  5. kelly (verified owner)

    Love the style of this top, made in Double brushed poly, nice drape, a fraction big through the bust, next time I will size down from bust and grade to hips (and this may just be due to fabric choice) I found it a little short in length, so plan to take off the band and double the width and it will be fine. Otherwise really like this one and will be making another.

  6. carolgleason (verified owner)

    I love this pattern!! The instructions were very clear and thorough. Because I am only 5’2″, I shortened the length 1″ at the lengthen/shorten lines as directed in the pattern. By doing so it brought up the cross over at the neck, and I don’t need to wear a layering piece underneath.
    I will be making more of these soon.

How to choose your size

  1. Determine your cup size—subtract the circumference of your over bust from the circumference of the fullest part of your bust. If the rounded difference is 1″ (2.5 cm), use A cup; 2″ (5 cm), use B cup; 3″ (7.5 cm), use C cup; 4″ (10 cm), use D cup; 5″ (12.5 cm), use DD cup.
  2. After determining the cup size, compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Using the corresponding row for your cup, choose the size that best fits your bust. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  3. Compare your waist circumference (narrowest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your waist. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  4. Compare your hip circumference (widest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that fits your hip best. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  5. It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip. The instructions for blending sizes are included in the pattern.
  6. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the garment. The instructions for lengthening or shortening are included in the pattern.
