I'm really happy with this pattern and will likely make a bunch of these tops! The all in one facing is definitely the hardest part of the assembly but there is a really helpful video tutorial for it on the IndieSew blog that clarified everything for me.


My bust measurement is about an inch bigger than the 31.5" listed for the size I made, but I didn't want to be drowning in a bigger one. Thankfully it fits just fine! I may even consider going down to the first size in the future. It only took about two hours to complete, so it's a very quick sew.


I'm a sewing noob. This was my first pattern. I had a very hard time understanding what I should be doing with the armholes. It took me awhile to sort out, and I had to go to youtube for better instruction. Of course once I figured out what I should be doing, I still managed to butcher that process. It's a gorgeous tank though, very versatile. I'm sure I'll try this pattern again in the future.
