This top is made for wovens and it is made to be reversible. I made it to have more of a lining, so this not reversible. The leggings she is wearing are from Blaverry, as well. She is reworking her old patterns (this top has been redone), so I would hold off on those right now. Once they have been redone, hopefully I will get to make them up and can give a review on them.
Pattern sizing: 2T-16Y – I blended 7W and 14L, BUT I didn’t make the armhole as long as the 14. I think it is a little long, so I cut mine a good inch shorter. You might want to compare the pattern with another tank to determine if you think it is long or not.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern when you were finished sewing? Yes
Were the instructions complete and easy to follow? Yes - she uses illustrations and not photos. The only halfway difficult thing is the shirring at the upper chest (hard to see on my photos), but that is fairly simple to do.
Fabric used: Laser cut woven and a light-weight silver fabric for the lining. Both were non-stretch.
Did you alter the pattern in any way? I blended sizes and had a shorter armhole. I also used ribbon for the ruching at the shoulder instead of a fabric piece.
Was there anything you disliked or would change? Change the armhole length to a little shorter.
Would you sew it again? Yes. This is a cute top. Not sure I would make it as a dress for my daughter, as it seems a bit too young for a tween as a dress. I think it is very cute as a top or tunic, though.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes.
Do you consider the pattern beginner/intermediate/advanced? Beginner. It was a pretty quick sew, and fairly easy to put together.
Does the pattern include layers for easy printing? Yes
Seam allowance used in the pattern? 3/8”
Is the pattern cut or no cut pages? Cut
