Arm hole curves

The top with sleeves turned out much better than without. Unless you are an expert making such a tiny fold under twice then sewing it on the armhole curve it turns out to be very finicky and messy. A facing or I’d prefer a lining for back would work much easier and neater.

Second time

I have reviewed this pattern before, and found it great. This time I found that it went together much easier than I remembered. I didn't fold in the armhole to hem, instead I used bias binding and finished the armholes that way. Still recommend this pattern

Versatile, scrap-friendly, cool and simple. I enjoyed 'Summer Breeze' - both times !

I loved this design, but I got a little confused at first - wasn't sure when to sew the neckline facing pieces together, and how to stack the shirt pieces to get the "right" one on top. But I played with it a bit, ripped out a shoulder seam or two, and it worked. I definitely need practice on hemming curves - even with the included tips, mine only look good with the blessings of an iron and at a distance. Even the sleeves went in fairly easily, although I need practice in those, too. Thanks for a fun pattern I hope to use again soon !

Perfect for summer!

This is the cutest top ever. Just made it, and am getting ready to try it with a different fabric. So easy to make, and several options to select from, too!

Great summer top

It is a very good pattern and great instructions to follow. I made the top using 3 different fabric patterns in Green. I sandwiched a lime green rick rack in between the two layers of the dominant front piece and at the bottom of the sleeves. The sleeve fabrics I used were the opposite of the front panels. Since I used cotton, I had to add a placket at the back in order to close the blouse to fit my American Girl Doll. I don't think any adjustments would be necessary if using stretch fabric.
