Love this top! Pretty easy to sew together with the exception of the collar. Instructions state that the collar may need to be cut down, which it definitely does. Collar should be made specific to sizing. I found it super easy to put the pattern pieces together by marking each pattern inside the lines prior to cutting the pattern out of the printed paper. That way you know what pieces to tape together. I will be making many more of these!

Very cute top. Took a bit to get the pattern pieces together, but the end result is worth it.

The pattern pieces have to be put together before you can use the pattern and it is very confusing which piece goes with which part. After you figure it out, the pattern is easy to use and makes up really beautifully. It needs more instructions on how to put the pattern itself together.
