    Perfect for that casual look or can be dressed up in an instant with accessories.

  2. Saskia Bregazzi (verified owner)

    I love the way the side seams were sewn to create the armholes. I especially like the use of the double flat felled seams leading into the sleeve hem. Overall, this is a very quick sew and using some dramatic fabric can give a great look!

  3. Amanda Brine-Zamora (verified owner)

    Choose your fabrics carefully! The pattern is so quick and easy with clear and concise instructions.

    This pattern is very versatile, a very quick sew and you can make many tops for many occasions, dress it up or wear it to the beach/ pool. It’s such a great pattern

    It’s a great top. I love the no trim pattern pages, you’ve got a winner of a concept there!

    Quick sew, easy directions, versatile use.

  9. Kat Neih (verified owner)

    The Floaty Florence is a wonderful sew that looks elegant with its soft drape & flowing lines. It’s very versatile as you could use lighter weight fabrics for a top cover or a heavier weight for a warm fall top.

    A quick sew, that gives you a fashionable top that is fun to wear.

    DO IT!! This pattern comes together quickly. The finished product is so so cute. It was easy to do, and a quick sew! I have three more cut out and ready to go. My daughter LOVES her new shirt!!!

    I appreciated the diversity of this pattern. It can be a floaty blouse or a poncho! I used it as a poncho in a lightweight sweater knit and it came together beautifully. The facing makes for a strong neckline. Great pattern for a woven blouse!
