Lovely pattern to customise

I finished my first Collage Gather Top today and I'm in love! I used various scraps and it's amazing how different it can be each time. I will be making it again, probably in a longer version.

Fun and So Cute!

I love using different fabrics to create my top! This pattern was easy to follow! I can't wait to make another one. I really appreciated having the finished garment measurements.

Cute little top

I’ve been wanting to make this for some time just never got round to it. Couldn’t decide on fabric choice and quantities of each for the colour matching! In the end I used this bold Nerida Hansen viscose and really love how it turned out. I did lengthen it by two inches as I didn’t want such a cropped look. The instructions were very easy to follow and the tips about labelling each piece were useful. I imagine I’ll be making lots of other versions. Thanks for such a great pattern


Great product! I made the cutest top using the pattern that I am basically in love with. I immediately bought fabric to make a bunch more!


I adore this pattern! It is easy to follow and so enjoyable to sew. The top takes shape really quickly and each step feels rewarding. I am a beginner sewist and honestly this pattern makes me feel like a pro. It has given me the confidence to try some more challenging things and has made me more excited for sewing than ever. Also, I love that the possibilities for colour and pattern combinations are endless with this top. It's a great stash-buster and you can get really creative with it.
