    Perfect tank top

    I don’t know why I waited so long to try this top. Great fit and a wonderful classic edition to the wardrobe. I used a cream brushed knit and dark blue bands. I can’t wait to make more!

    Stylish tank

    A great tank with stylish wide binding giving a touch of class. Another great pattern with excellent step by step instructions that are supported with clear and legible pictures. Pattern includes link to a ‘ How to ‘ video that both comprehensively explains, and demonstrates, steps to complete the binding. A fantastic addition to an already detailed pattern. Love, love, love this pattern.

    Love this!

    This has become one of my favorite tanks! I’ve made a few and will be making more. A quick and easy sew. I love the wide binding. Step by step instructions for attaching the bidding is provided. Great pattern!

    Fantastic Tank Pattern

    It was the wide binding that drew me to this top. I love the look of it and I knew that it would be a top that I would make and wear time over again. I bought the pattern last week and have already made two!! Kate's video on the binding was 'spot on' and the super clear instructions made this top a dream to sew. I love it!!

    Lovely pattern

    I love the look of the wide binding and Kate's video made it much easier to understand and to sew. My muslin is wearable, and I cannot wait to make more!
