Bigger bust

I absolutely love this top, have seen it on others! It didn’t suit my bust at all which was disappointing. But pastern and instruction are very easy to follow!

Great for Beginners

After being away from sewing for a few years, I started with the Collage Gather Top (It was also the first time I purchased a PDF pattern). It is a brilliant top, well designed (putting the pattern together was easy-peasy) and sewing it was super fun. My only problem now is choosing what fabric to make the next one with.

Love my first Collage Gathered Top

This was a very easy project however the sizing was a challenge for me. My measurements said xl but I decided to go down to a large. I got the body part sewn and it was still too big for my preference. So I trimmed down about a inch on each side. I also lengthened 6 inches on front and back panels and 2 inches in the gathered panel and 3 inches on the shoulder panel. Should have rethought this as my front panels were then 1 inch too long but it was a very easy fix. I enlarged the sleeve space because I had read from several post that the arms sleeves were too tight. No for me so I had to re adjust to regular pattern on the arm. I’m done and I love it ! This is great for fabric scraps and block it. I made this in a solid linen. What's awesome about this pattern is you can make so many different hacks. I will definitely make more of this top and also a short dress and play around with different blocking. This is so cute

Awesome pattern

I have made both sleeve options for the shirt, as well as the maxi dress hack. Super easy to make, lovely fit and great scrap buster.
