Nothing about this top was flattering for me. I'm a size 6. I wound up taking the sides in, extending the buttons all the way down, putting in some darts, taking the shoulders up and making the sleeves short... it's basically a whole different shirt now, but done in an annoying roundabout way...

Some patterns on here come with a size guide as well as a finished garment size guide together. This only comes with finished bust size. I think it would be useful considering how much ease people are finding the finished garment has maybe add both of the sizing guides so ladies can choose which size they would prefer based on how much ease.

Yards needed?
Reviewer: Elizabeth

Doesn't mention how much yards needed?!

Thank you for pointing that out. Some of our older free patterns do not have yardage charts for each size but we are hoping to upgrade them soon. :) The 2 yards listed in The Thread tutorial for this pattern will work for all the included sizes.

Pattern Sizing
Reviewer: Annamarie

The pattern sizing is generous. I normally take a size 8-10 in pattern sizes. Note: I am small, but not a petite size. I cut a size 8/10 and pin fit it before sewing since I wasn't sure of the design ease. My bust measures 32 inches. So, I had 8 inches of ease. The size 8/10 was way too big on me. It looked like a large, oversized shirt from the 80s. I then cut the pattern pieces down to a size 4/6. Now, I can actually see the blouse design. I also extended the center back in width by 1 5/8" for a self facing; I didn't want the extra bulk of an attached facing. Also, the "cut line" on the right back pattern piece is actually an overlap line, NOT a line for cutting. The next time that I make this pattern, I will add an armcye and slightly curve it under the arm to prevent the fabric from bunching.

I love this pattern. I french-seamed it, made it a little longer in back, and used a contrasting fabric for facing at wrists and neck.

Here the beautiful little Dalia wearing the Taylor top for children (size 7-8 years) in Natural mix with a skirt in Natural.

I'm in love with the Taylor top for women. I'm a photograher and a creator and I have make the Taylor top for children and keep the name also. I have sewn it in Natural mix and in Natural from Fabrics Store. I love the grain, the texture, the fall of this 5.3 oz long staples linen. My little handmade pure linen collection is sold on my website, lelinquotidien.com. I will add the beautiful Taylor top and a dress also inspired by the top very soon. I will also change all my collection with the time, using Oeko-Tex linen from Fabrics Store.

I used the lighter weight linen from Fabrics-Store in Apricot for this top. Cut bias for neck facing at 1.5 inches, and serged seams and hems. Instructions are a bit sparse but an experienced beginner should be able to successfully complete the project and have a very cute top!

I agree with other review, this is a bulky blouse. I realize it is intended to be generous, but the 4/6 swims on me. My daughter, 10/12, is modeling it. It is also pretty short, so add length to the ruffle if you are long waisted. Love the style. Keep those patterns coming!
