Kathleen profile image Love this shirt, hope to love the pants
Reviewer: Kathleen

I have made dozens of shirts and this one goes together like a dream. The drape of the back pleat is unique and fun. I got compliments and a request from a colleague to make one for her. Love it so much, I made it in two colors. I made the shorts...my first adventure into tailoring. The hardest part was the loop for the back pockets. After two failed attempts, I decided to cut a 2-inch wide bias strip and use my zipper foot and some cord to make piping. Then I stitched across one end to anchor the cord, trimmed the seam to 1/8 inch, and turned it. Perfect! I don't understand what is up with the back waistband. I will make it much narrower in the back and eliminate the raw edge to raw edge feature. Finally, the fly is the reverse of every other pant I own. Nest time I will reverse the application. Otherwise, this is a great, flattering pattern, and I will be using it for years.

Reviewer: Sheila

when advertising your patterns online, it would be extremely helpful to make yardages for the sizes and the individual garments available so that we can plan how much fabric to buy when we are inspired by a sale and like a pattern we see. Spontaneous people would appreciate it.

Hi! Thank you so much for reaching out - right above the add to cart button there is a "View Size Chart" link and it opens up into details of sizes/yardage for that particular pattern. I will talk to the team to see how we can make that link more prominent. Have a great day!

Mary profile image Classic with some great time-saving features
Reviewer: Mary

I love this pattern. The double welt back pockets and the traditional fly front on the pants and the sleeve plackets on the shirt are so traditional. I'm particularly impressed by the treatments for the pants hems and the shirt collar as a way of saving my time. However, if you're impatient or a less experienced seamstress, this may be bit too much. The Charlie pattern, which I also love, is much easier. No fly-front, no double-welt back pockets, no sleeve plackets, and only one buttonhole. The high waist and sash on the pants may not be what you want, but the sash can be dispensed wit, saving yardage.

I love my new Riva — easy fitting, elegant and fun to sew. Don't let finished measurements fool you, go by the measurement chart for the correct drape!
