Additional Notes

This pattern includes all pattern pieces and instructions with illustrations.

Great pattern. Fun to sew. The vents/side slits (as designed) end up hitting me about 3 inches about my natural waist. I typically wear tanks under most of my tops anyway, but you would need a rather high waisted pant or to lower the slit if that is a concern.




This is a great pattern! I made the dress version but shortened it 1.5" to wear as a tunic. The top would make a great basic for any wardrobe.


I love it and I'm so happy I tried out the flat felled seams! Definitely doing it like that from now on for this pattern. Highly recommend basting in the neckband first before sewing it in, but other than that it's perfect!



Great pattern! It's definitely beginner friendly, and it has great details and finishes.
