Additional Notes

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

I love this pattern! To me it feels casual and a bit sporty but still
very clean and classy, and you can make very different kinds of dresses with different fabrics and prints/solids.

Love the versatility of the pattern. It can be made in structured knits or wovens and a cropped tee or dress.

I added 7-8 inches, and I added an inch to the top of the slit. The neck gapes a bit but it's probably a personal fit issue.

Single worst pattern I ever sewed. Waste of lovelyfabric but saved to try to upcycle it.

Haven't tried the armscye as drafted, took in side seams to make it less cocoony.

Pretty straight forward pattern, quick sew.

The PDF was very easy to put together, I particularly liked the placement of the pieces within the A4 printed sheet which meant that you could avoid too much cutting of waste paper.

It is a really fabulous pattern!

Fantastic. You cannot go wrong with named patterns. Well designed

Named Patterns aren't nested all together in one file. It's the only drawback to this pattern, in my opinion. If you need to grade between sizes it's a bit of a challenge.

This was only my second time sewing. with a Named Clothing Pattern, but am already in love with the designs.

I will use this pattern over and over again

So nice to have found a simple t-shirt pattern which fits well and is flattering. I made a regular t-shirt length as I had leftover fabric to use, but can't wait to make a dress. Or maybe three...
