Easy , clear instructions
I really love this pattern, and it is so comfortable in lightweight cotton or as my favorite in woven viscose. I made it as a tunic and as a dress, but I definitely prefer when you define the waist (probably because my bum is a quite a lot larger than my waist). I even hacked the pattern and made it as maxi dress.
This pattern was a breeze to whip up. And I'm definitely in the beginner category. The only reason I knocked off a star was because I carefully measured myself and sewed up the size to go with it and it was just too big. I ended up taking it in at the seems 2 inches per side!!!! And even though it's a woven I had no trouble getting it on and off even with taking it in. But that was an easy fix. And I get compliments all the time!
Pattern for the most part is pretty straightforward and easy to follow. The final product is beautiful on all body types. The instructions for adding the straps, however, could have better. I made this top for a customer out of state. Being that the top has elastic in it I would have like to have seen markers on the pattern of where the straps could be placed. If I made the strapless version this would definitely get a 5 star rating because the rest of the instructions were very easy to follow. With that said, this is a very lovely pattern, I definitely plan on making more.
