Additional Notes

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

Love this pattern. So easy to use and an amazing flattering fit



This is a great wardrobe builder, and I'm already planning my next one!


This is one of my favorite patterns, it's so simple and versatile!


Great pattern...all pattern pieces came together perfectly!


I love this pattern. There will only be more.



When they say "box," they DO mean BOX! Unflattering even in a fabric with a lot of drape and good hand. Not a fan of this pattern. If you are very busty or weight-challenged on either end of the spectrum, this may be fine as it hides too-too-thin or a bit on the larger size, maybe you'd enjoy the boxiness. I didn't.


The pattern was very easy to cut out and follow. The PDF seemed well produced and I liked how the upper body and hem options are mix and match.


This is a fun pattern and at my blog I have a tip for adding elastic to the neckline, just a bit keeps the neck close to the body.
