Additional Notes

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

The darts are too high and I need to lower them at least an inch - I've heard this from others, I feel like the pattern is too expensive to have darts that are commonly too high. But, other than that, it's a really wonderful pattern.

Great fit without any alterations.

This is an excellent pattern with a beautiful fit! Definitely a wardrobe staple that is easy to put together.

A really great pattern. I especially liked the instructions that were full of helpful reminders and tips.

Rae's instructions are incredibly detailed, as always. I love my finished top and highly recommend this pattern!
