Would this pattern work with the IC012 Poplin? Specifically the Barbara print?

Yes, you can use the poplin for this pattern.

What weight of linen do you recommend for this top? I would think light, but what do you say? Thanks

We recommend our IL020 lightweight handkerchief linen for this top. For an even lighter and sheer layer, our IL030 is beautiful.

Julie profile image Fun Fast Pattern

This pattern was so fast and fun to whip out. I'll be wearing it with all the patterns & my own line of clothing soon to be seen. The sizing I've learned for me is to go smaller on size by 2 sizes except in the hips. But this is relaxed and it probably doesn't need any altering! Fast & fun

Elaine profile image The perfect summer top!

This is a wonderful way to add a little coverage to summer tank tops, and the Nico pattern. The sleeve was very narrow, and had to be altered. I finished the hems with a machine stitch that resembles hemstitching (back and forth several times for one stitch, and swing left one stitch - with a tightened needle thread the stitch pulls the fabric into lovely holes). I chose a buckle over a knot to avoid the bulk. A fancy buckle really dresses it up.

I just can't get the right amount of boob coverage

I do wish that the patterns were tested with larger models instead of just adding more lines. Also, Patricia, that's the wrong way to respond to reviews. You could just not comment instead of telling people whether your definition of average matches theirs.

This pattern is sized for ladies 0/2 to 28/30. So Deborah, it simply cannot be considered "way too small for the average woman."

too small

why don't you make all your patterns for plus size also? I love this but it is way too small for the average woman.

Deborah • April 27, 2018

The sleeves were very small. I had to draft a new sleeve pattern to fit my "old age wings". The buckle is preferable to a bulky knot. I love my tank tops, but to go out in public, want to cover my shoulders and arms. This is the perfect pattern. The point d' paris stitch on my machine makes a beautiful hem stitched front and sleeves.

Hem stitching on front of the Eva Blouse.
