Customer Questions and Answers

NO

I have set my default to open pdf's in Adobe and everyone opens NOT in adobe so I only get 4 to 5 pages of your description and how to download. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe, the most current version , I've changed my site settings .I've made adobe my default. I'm a registered customer--which BTW I LOVE your Nico and Lily paper pattern. Best bias dress ever!

Hi! Yay about the Lily and Nico :) The Free PDF patterns - this depends on how your browser is set to preview files and to download them. Your browser is most likely showing you the file in its own "preview" mode - you see the file but have no functions of that file. You'd want to save that file to your device and then open Adobe and then in the Adobe menu - ask it to open the saved file ( the file might be in the downloads or recent files folder). If you are stuck - send us an email to customer service letting us know what device you are using and we will walk you through it.

Perfect Tank Top

I've been looking for a comfortable tank for ages. This is it. I have a very small chest and have decided I only need an undershirt instead of a bra. I started with the pattern as is, size 10-12. As I progressed, I lowered the neck line so the upper edge of the tank peeks out at the top of my shirts. This is easy to make and very comfortable made from IL030, IL020 and gauze. I've made 8 so far.

Great pattern

Lined it with very thin cotton (batiste) as a facing. Added self drafted sleeves. Fits me perfectly.

Simple

I've made this top twice. The first time I made it with a light linen and the second with a medium weight. The first worked well (I enlarged the armhole), yet it felt a little boxy, so I tried cutting the fabric on the bias for the second one. I was pleasantly surprised at what a difference this made. I don't know anything about cutting on the bias except that it usually make a garment more flowy. I didn't know how to work with the trim on the bias (do you stretch the trim a lot more?), so the back neck gapes a little. Since I was working with scraps, I had to sew a few angles that I'm not familiar sewing, so the shirt doesn't look as good as it would if an expert were doing it. I'm pleased, though. Thank you! For a beginner, this is a great pattern!

Love this top!

I have made this top 4 times. I made it for a friend and then two more times out of fabric scraps. I love that it doesn't take too much fabric. so simple to pair with printed skirts.

Runs small S

I had big hopes for this tank top. Too tight in bust. Could barely get head through next. However, wonderful instructions. Will try a garter size.

I've made 4 of these tanks from FS linen. They are great for layering! Love the bias binding at the neck and arms.

Third try. The bias cut worked perfectly this time. I still need to work on proper binding for the neck and armholes.

Rachel • January 28, 2022

Visible purchased leftover trim (I'll stick with my own from the same fabric next time). Fabric pieced from scraps and cut on bias. I'm a beginner sewist as is evident. I liked the drape of the fabric cut on the bias better than with the grain.

Rachel • January 27, 2022

Thanks to all the reviews, I knew to make the armholes a bit bigger. The shirt is a tad bit too short for my preferences, but it works. It's a nice pattern and a good opportunity to practice finishing the armholes and neckline.
