    Summer showstopper

    I bought the exhale top to showcase a tropical print in bamboo Lycra using the sleeveless hi-lo midi length. It is beautiful. The cut works perfectly for my large bust without any adjustments and the lines flow nicely. I made a second version in another BL print and love it just as much. I have styled it with shorts tucked in the front and flowing in the back as was shown in some of the pictures.

    Exhale Top

    Unfortunately I haven't used this pattern yet. Very soon I hope. I gave a 5 star rating because I just know it will be as all Kates patterns are.


    Absolutely love this pattern for a fast elegant top. I used bamboo Lycra for a
    Summer version I. The midi length Hilo sleeveless. It fits beautifully and drapes well. The silhouette is very friendly to those with a larger bust - no fba needed.

    Great patterns with variations

    It’s the third pattern from PE and I like them all!
    I love the different variations for length, arms and neckline.
    The English is easy to understand (I‘m from Germany).
