Love it!

Have made both a top and a dress hack with this pattern and love it! Super easy to follow, quick to sew, and a delight to wear. For both versions I have made, I did bias bound neck and sleeve openings, but am excited to try the gathered sleeve and sleeve cuff options for future versions.

Sew cute;))

I absolutely love this pattern! Been debating on trying it out for a long time and I’m so glad I did. All of the different panels allow you to get so creative and the instructions were so easy to follow as a beginner sewist. I decided to make my first attempt Halloween themed and I’ve been wearing it all season and have gotten so many compliments on it. I can’t wait to make many more versions!


OMG obsessed with this pattern. I’ve made 2 already using scraps which makes this essentially a free pattern


So easy to make , will be using up all my bits and pieces of fabric to make more

Simple and Satisfying

I'm a major beginner and my first one came together quickly and easily. I've made several more versions since and loved them all!
