The instructions were clear and I enjoyed the process.
I used this to repurpose an expensive jersey shirt and it worked beautifully. I have worn this top so much and already plan to make another having bought some fabric.
Easy to follow instructions. Thank you
I’m a beginner but I was able to make several tee shirts easily with this pattern.
Two points I would make are the cropped length is very, very short and make it from viscose jersey so that it drapes properly.
I made the raglan sleeve dress view and loved the end result! It was an extraordinarily quick sew and I love the end result which is a highly wearable and comfortable dress. Make sure to double check the width of your fabric otherwise it's nearly impossible to fit the pattern pieces.
Planning to make the scoop neck version top next!
I've made this twice..one for me and one for my daughter who is expecting.each time I wear this dress I get positive comments from my co-workers. I feel like I am wearing my pajamas to work! I adjusted the hemline on my daughter's dress to accommodate maternity silhouette. this will definitely be one of my go-to patterns!
I made this for my daughter, for maternity wear. She loves it!
