Recommended Fabrics: Light-to-medium weight fabrics work well for this top, particularly quilting cottons and lightweight dress fabrics with a bit of body. Not recommended for heavier satins and brocades. A medium-weight quilter's cotton (or other similar fabric) works well for the dress variation.

This is nice alternative to knit fabrics. I goes together easily and looks cute. Fun way to use up small amounts of leftover fabrics.
very easy to understand.
The pattern was easy to use, but the pages of sewing instructions was fabulous.
Nice change to make a T-shirt out of woven fabric. Made it in red cotton, trimmed with white and red maple leaf design for Canada Day. Looks lovely with the Doll Tag Clothing "Simply a Skirt" made with the same maple leaf design. Thank you. Jenifer B
