Bernice @sewbee73 made not only one but three versions of this pattern during the testing phase – it’s such a quick make! Two versions made it to the blog.

Version 3

Her impression of the pattern:

This is a cute and feminine dress and top that is easy to sew. The ruffle at the shoulder and back is a special detail. The versions without the ruffle are good basics.

Version 1

Her impression of the pattern:

This is a fun and quick top that is perfect for your summer wardrobe. It skims the body perfectly! You can make this top even more versatile by wearing it as a vest or pinafore in the autumn and winter months over a tight fitting long sleeve top or turtleneck sweater. You’ll love wearing it!

Her impression of the pattern:

This is such a satisfying sewing project: super fast to sew, perfect fit, comfortable, easy to wear with anything! I particularly like the shape of the back, and it will become a basic in my wardrobe.

Version 1

Her impression of the pattern:

The design is great for a workout top minus the ruffles. I can see this in many light weight fabric for the summer. The dress is a keeper for lounging and such a quick make.

This is an easy pattern to sew, the instructions are so clear that if you are a beginner who wants to try something easy this is your project! You will get clear instructions and a cute top/dress. I made the top with ruffles and I can’t wait to sew another one! Perfect for summer 🙂

It’s a lovely pattern, very comfortable and will look great with a belt in summer. It took me less than 2 hours to sew which is great. I love the frills too.

Version 4

Her impression of the pattern:

It’s an easy make. You can use the version without the ruffle casually at the beach or in the garden but easily dress it up a bit with a white t-shirt underneath and go for a casual lunch, with loads of room for eating yummi food 😉 Or just add the ruffle for a more dressed up and feminine look.

Her impression of the pattern:

I love the style of this top! The ruffles and racer back are a great detail. This pattern goes together quickly. One of the best PDF patterns I’ve printed at home, everything lines up, no cutting to match corners!

Her impression of the pattern:

Great pattern for a basic tank! I can see myself making this loads as a workout top or as a casual tank for summer with the ruffles.
