Additional Notes

This sewing pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.

Love it!

Very few pieces but I recommend a muslin to ensure a great fit around the shoulders.

I love it and I can't wait to make another!

Absolutely love this pattern! I took the mini class on Creativebug and got the pattern as a bonus....super psyched!! I've made a few for me (ok more than a few! lol) and some for gifts...EVERYONE loves it!
Great job ladies!! ;-)

This was a great sew! I printed/cut the pattern and got 75% of the way done the first night, and finished it the next day. Everything came together so well. I want to make so many more!

This pattern looks great on everyone who has made one! I lengthened the sleeves by 1.5 inches.

Love this pattern, it is everything Jamie and Amber say it is. It is a must have.

Great fitting top and a quick sew

This is my sixth? Sailor Top... love it!!

This pattern is a favorite. Made mine out of chambray and it is so comfy to wear. Pattern was fantastically written and easy to follow.
