Donna Jones –
This is such a satisfying make! Its reletively simple, the bias binding being the trickiest part and that gets done and out the way right at the beginning. The end result is a simple but classy looking top for the great British summertime garden sunbathing

Once it was created it is such a super cute top with limited fuss. I would recommend giving a guide for the amount of elastic for the top and bottom.
Alexandria Phillip –
Love this top! It was super quick and easy even with the flounce! I can’t wait to mix up the fabric options for different looks. And the absolute best part? Its for knits and woven! Definitely a great addition to your summer wardrobe.
Salomé Goncalves –
Very easy pattern to follow, and it can be quite quick to sew. I chose the double flounce, so had to spend some time on the binding, but the end result was great! If you like a vintage vibe, pair it with the vintage shorts (like I did :D). I’m just waiting for the summer to arrive in the north of Germany so I can wear my lovely me-made set outside!
Kelly Tuttle –
Beautiful, fun, fluttery too. I love the flounce! I have been wearing mine like crazy, it’s perfect for the summer heat.
Kelly Tuttle –
Very cute, fluttery, breezy tops. My girls love them! Fit was spot on going by measurements.
Angel Pooley –
Loved this make, it’s was so quick and easy and so stylish! Will defo make another!
Peggy Pazera Cooke –
Super sweet, super simple top for those hot summer months! The flounce adds an extra bit of fun.
Janet Cox –
A quick and relatively easy sew. Only the bias binding took a long time! Without doing the FBA, a woven fabric is a bit tight for a slightly larger bust, but I think it would be fine for a knit.
Angel Pooley –
Super quick and easy make, if chosen to make without the ruffle it’s only 2 bits of fabric! And I loveeee mine!
Krystyna Czerwiec –
Very easy to sew and perfect for hot summer.

Lynda Tomalin “Such a fun, quick sew! There’s so many options for this little top, from fabrics to use, to flounces and Halter ties.
My girls all love theirs and can’t wait for summer when they can actually wear them.
Nice, simple instructions that are easy to follow and this top can be made from start to finish in just an hour or two!”
