Fabrcis-store buyer profile image A great, simple top
Reviewer: Anonymous

Easy to sew, easy to wear, exactly the kind of top I like :) A great method for finishing the neck and armholes with bias binding. I added a hi lo hem and side splits. I will definitely make more!

Marlene profile image So good
Reviewer: Marlene

Thank you for providing this wonderful pattern. This is my first time making one of your patterns and I purchased some of your medium weight softened linen for it. I love the results, so I made the boxy tee shirt top next so I would be able to wear this linen more often. I was searching for such cool patterns and beautiful fabrics like these, so your site is a dream come true! Thanks again, I really appreciate it.

Wonderful pattern for a beginner. Well explained with step-by-step instructions that were clear. The pictures certainly helped for a novice. Up to date software helps when downloading this pattern.

Good afternoon - the pattern is included as an attached file to the main PDF. To access the attached file. In the Adobe menu click View - Show/Hide- Navigation panes - Attachments. Adobe will pop open a side panel with the attached file. I sent you an email with pictures of the steps. Email me if you have any questions and have a great day.

Rachel profile image Plus size? Don't bother with this pattern.
Reviewer: Rachel

I made three muslin mockups on this pattern trying to make it work with a body that actually has breasts, and finally I quit. Not even an FBA got it working correctly. The armscye is drafted ludicrously large and continued to gape no matter what I did. It's obvious the pattern designer has no experience on adjusting patterns for anything larger than a small frame with a B-cup.

Reviewer: Lisa

I downloaded this pattern today and I am almost done with it. Love that finished measurements were included. I am not the best at altering patterns to fit but with this pattern it was easy and it fits perfectly. I will be making this many times. I see so many possibilities with this pattern and I cannot wait to try many of them. This shirt does finish up short-perfect for me because I am only 5'1". Thank you for the pattern.

Sarah profile image Sweet and Simple
Reviewer: Sarah

A lovely little top! I just made this tank over the weekend and will be wearing it soon. I'm a beginner who had never done this style of binding on the neck and arms, but the tutorials and photos made the whole process quite straightforward. I decided to use French seams on the shoulders and sides for a cleaner finish, and I'm quite happy with that change (just add a bit extra to the seam allowances to compensate). I had a slight issue with the fit being tight across the chest and high under my arms when I first tried it on (before binding the arm holes), but it was easy enough to cut the arms a little deeper to make it fall right. I would say it fits a bit on the smaller/shorter side, but I'm also fairly tall with broad shoulders. I'll definitely be using this pattern again as a starting point for other tops. Thank you!

Reviewer: Alice

This is a great pattern for a beginner... I love the hacks on you blog The Thread. I made a muslin for the tank and the Morocco pants. They are both wearable garments & I did not need to make any changes other then initially I graded up for my hips! Thank you !

Barbara profile image Love It
Reviewer: Barbara

This is a great little top. It's easy to sew - a great project for someone getting back into sewing after decades - and the style is very flattering even on my 64 year old body! I re-purposed a chambray linen sun dress that I bought online. The dress, unfortuantely, looked like a hospital gown on me and I didn't want to fabric to go to waste. I bought two of those sun dresses and, now that I know what I'm doing, will make another top out of the second one. I will be sizing up as the first top is very tight, although I'm able to wear it around the house without a bra. This is entirely my fault and has nothing to do with the pattern or design. I did not double check my measurments against the pattern measurments and made what I thought was my size. Yeah...my size 10 years ago. That was a stupid mistake which I'll not make again. Once I complete the second go-round and confirm its size and fit, I have some beautiful Fabric Store linen that I will use for the final version.

Denise profile image HOW TO MAKE OPENING THE FILE A PIECE OF CAKE!
Reviewer: Denise

Melanie figured it out, and the company should update all instruction sheets accordingly to avoid further complaints. YOU MUST FIRST TELL ACROBAT READER TO VIEW ATTACHMENTS. Only then will you see the file in the ATTACHMENTS PANE next to the PAPER CLIP icon. You will NOT see it in the layers pane yet!!! YOU MUST DOUBLE CLICK THE FILE IN THE ATTACHMENTS pane next to the PAPERCLIP to see the printable LAYERS. The Navigation Pane is built like a cream-filled cake: the Title Page is the frosting, the Attachment (paper clip) is the cake, and Layers is the filling. Start at the top and work your way down. ......................................................................... Dear Company Owner, delete the line on the first page of the PDF that says, ....the included files and size layers... and just say ATTACHMENT. That is the Adobe word for what we are looking for!! Also delete the Helpful Tip to press F4 because it is not helpful! F4 closes the application on my European keyboard!! Finally, edit the last line to say: In the drop-down menu, select: View > Show/HIDE > Navigation PANES > ATTACHMENTS.................It is not enough to tell customers to just open it in Adobe and view navigation panes! I have used Adobe products for 30 years and the hiding of layers is a new thing, and it WILL cause grief for many until you walk through each step yourself, as with patterning, and be exact with the use of your terms and order of steps to take.

Susan profile image Please keep the patterns coming!
Reviewer: Susan

I am not handy enough to create my own pattern so I am very grateful for the ones you provide. This pattern is perfect: casual and easy to make. I cheat and do not make bias tape, but just finish edges with a simple rolled edge. The swing blouse pattern I made, from the same size, 4/6, was way too bulky on me, but my daughter looks great in it. Wanting to have a blouse with that swing ruffle look, I cut this pattern out in a cropped length, cut the ruffle piece from the swing blouse pattern (I added 3" of length to it) and made a similar look that I am very happy with.

Catina profile image Customer service is happy to help with your download issues.
Reviewer: Catina

If you are having trouble understanding how to open/view/print this free PDF pattern using the Adobe Reader program, please kindly consider contacting customer service before rating the pattern. To ensure you are opening the pattern in Adobe Reader, it is best to first launch the program and then File:Open your desired PDF file. All printable pages are included in "attachments" with a convenient single download. Just "double-clicking" on a PDF file will not guarantee it is opening in the full Adobe Reader program and you may just get a limited functioning "preview".

Melanie profile image Pattern pieces
Reviewer: Melanie

Some people having trouble finding pattern pieces. The pattern pieces are attached to the original document as an attachment. If you've got the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat Reader, you need to go to the View menu, to Show/Hide to Navigation Panes, and select Attachments, then on the right hand side in the Attachments Pane click on the Paperclip icon if necessary, and select the file named "Linen Tank Pattern." I had no problem locating and printing out the pattern pieces.

Phoebe — Linen Tank Pattern

I used the Natural linen, medium weight, softened. Lengthened pattern to make into a tunic. Added patch pockets and hand embroidered details. Matching palazzo pants. This took only 2 yards! (And just a bit more for the self bias trim) Enjoyed every minute of this project. Thank you for your great products. Linen of very good quality and love the patterns!
