Customer Questions and Answers
I have used this pattern in a couple of different ways as you can see in Post Your Work. I do have to size up but I have a large torso for my size. I normally wear a 14 US but sized up to 16 US and I like my tops a little loose too. Great pattern and Great linen.
I made a 12/14. I think this is just too large in the bust. I love the pintuck detail and the instructions for it are very good. I was most disappointed in the straps. it was not very clear now to size them, but even when I considered making a smaller size and much lower straps, the pinning I was doing just wasn't working.
I'm sorry this didn't turn out the way you envisioned. Please look out for an email from Lauren, our patterns and fit consultant.
I made a second of this one in smaller size 0/2.. the finished measurement on the bust was 34 and not 35.5 as mentioned in the size chart. So added 1/4th inch to front and back pattern pieces before cutting so I get about an inch of room. Had to do a dart as in size 4/6 and extra pintuck on both sides in front to fit. So yeah it looks nice but definitely need adjustments.
I made a size 4/6 and cami has gaping at front neckline, back neckline and fron armhole (this one i fixed by adding a dart). The fabric does not lie flat against the body both at the front and back and I am not sure what to do about it.
This pattern really helped me get more confident on my machine, I learned a lot making it. I added darts to the bust and made the straps quite short which helped with the top gaping. The partial placket I think needs some updating, it didn't come with any seam measurements and I think it should have incorporated a tower on one side. I messed it up the first time and had to come up with a hack to fix it the second time. Overall, I'm super happy with how it came out and have gotten a lot of compliments! I made it with basic quilting cotton, since I wanted something I wouldn't be too upset about possibly messing up. But when my linen comes in I will definitely be making it again! Thank you for the beautiful pattern!!
Made one without button placate or waist tie. Made another one with not placate or waist tie but added a ruffle on the bottom also. Very easy to make and I wash my fabric before and also the product after construction and found there were no problems with fit whatsoever. Used a softened linen from the Fabrics-Store.
I made a size 4-6 though size chart suggested 0-2 based on the bust measurement. I paired it with purl soho city gym shorts for summer lounge set. I love the pintucks and tie belt as the design detail. I ran into a couple of issues: 1. Front arm hole was gaping (and you can see that in the model pictures too). I pinched extra fabric and sewed it into a dart and it lays better. As the other reviewer mentioned (comments on the tutorial page) - gather before putting in the binding - I think this would be a more elegant looking solution. 2. After sewing in the binding, at places the fabric came out of the binding at several places at the slightest tug while I was trying it out. Perhaps I should have used 2 step method to attach the binding or use a wider binding. I feel like its gonna happen at more places as I wash/wear this so likely I'd have to do redo the bias binding. I used 100% linen for this project. I must add I am a beginner and not that proficient at sewing.
