I like this pattern, but it definitely meant for less chesty women. I really enjoyed making this and it was definitely simple, but all her patterns are. I love them regardless!
very easy and cute, made these for a few of our friends.
So cute and easy to make!
Made me and daughter matching easy and cute!
Every woman is different. this pattern definitely calls for some adjustments! Overall, very easy to read and follow!
Have made this with fabric tie and ribbon tie. Made the smaller size and didn't have any trouble with the armhole fit like some others. I agree, though, that it isn't very flattering as there's no shape. It's a pillowcase dress for adults in shirt-length.
cute and easy to make!!!
Love this pattern, Easy and quick to make, I do suggest lengthening the armholes just a bit for older girls as well. Very pleased.
May daughter wanted a couple of these tops. I wasn't sure about the lengths and the sizing so I purchased the pattern. Great pattern, simple and thorough instructions. A beginning sewer would certainly be able to use this pattern with no difficulties. I made several for her and friends. They go together in much less than an hour. I did add a bit to the armholes and the length. She wears them with her leggings and also a long sleeved t-shirt under for the winter months and the slightly cooler days. She wore a top very similar to this pattern years ago and still has that top--definitely needed to freshen up her casual tops.
This was a great pattern! Very easy to make.
Made this as a gift for my super tiny daughter-in-law. I think she really liked it and seems to love it when I make gifts for her.
This worked perfectly for my tweenie! So easy too!
Made these for my 11 year old and she loves them
simple simple simple!! love it
Loved this pattern!
I agree the arm holes don't seem to be right, but easy to follow the pattern
My 6yo dd and I made these plus one for her doll all to match. They turned out really cute and the pattern and directions were super! Easy for a beginner, fast to put together!! Great for hot summer days.

Love the creators stuff!
This was a nice starter top for my oldest daughter, she is in between kids and misses so this was great, and she made it herself, she LOVED it.
I LOVE IT makes a beautiful shirt!
Kind of shapeless and not figure flattering. But this was a great pattern for me to use during my summer maternity days. Quick and easy to put together and fits a great variety of sizing!
I agree with some of the other ladies here. The top came together easily and beautifully, but it isn't terribly flattering to my post-twins body. The arm holes need a bit of tweaking. I'm going to try this pattern again in a drapier (spelling?) fabric like satin or jersey and also make it a bit longer to wear with leggings.
I purchased several fabric combos to make several of these for my pre-teen daughter. Made my first one yesterday and cannot wait to make more. They are too cute and go together so easily. She loves it. Thank you.
Not terribly flattering for an adult (size large), I was disappointed that the body had NO shaping, just a sack with arm holes. It was fast and it was easy, but is it something I'll wear? Not without some major pattern rehab like shaping at the waist and some work on the arm holes because I don't have twig arms.
it's true! this is an awesome pattern! i made one myself for my DD last summer!
Super easy pattern to follow. I definitely reccommend reading through the entire instructions first before starting. And I think the arm holes need minor adjusting. When I put on the shirt the arm holes felt like they were going to saw my arm off they were so tight. I made the large size and everything went really well. Defintiely in LOVE with the pattern just needs slightly longer arm holes for sure.
