    Runs large

    Fortunately I made a toile and used inexpensive fabric. I made the smallest size and it looks huge on me. I realize this type of top is supposed to be loose fitting, but it is way more than loose fitting on me. If I choose to make it again I will make some alterations by taking in all seams. Otherwise it sews up quickly.


    Great pattern with amazing instructions

    So versatile

    This pattern is so easy and the options are endless! Have made two long sleeved and one short sleeved and I am planning many more.

    Easy to sew, lovely to wear

    I needed a batwing shirt and discover this one searching the internet. A very lucky day. I fell in love with the compagny. The A0 layered file was easy to use with my projector. The instructions are well written, with enough description for a fresh sewist and clear sentences for a non native English. I love that I fit exactly the size whithout having to grade. The result is very flattering for my bodyshape. I already made two and I would certainly make more.

    Love it

    I love this pattern, it has just the look and fit I wanted. I’ll be making many more.
