    It’s a very quick and easy sew! I could see making this in the morning to wear in the evening. Buy it! Now! You will love it! 🙂

  2. Yulia Shikhova Korinnyi (verified owner)

    Love that it is super quick to sew! Make sure you use the right fabric with good drape and good stretch and recovery.

  3. Beth Woodhauson (verified owner)

    Very comfy, very stylish and the such an easy quick sew! It’s an incredibly versatile pattern and I can see myself making more summer and winter outfits. I’d like to try a woven mixed with knit style another day. The hacks I could do – lower the neckline, widen the neckband, raise or lower the torso, leave the waistband off or widen it. Definitely newbie friendly too.

  4. Tracey Denlinger (verified owner)

    No trim pages! Clear instructions. Final product that actually fits me 🙂 Definitely buy it! You won’t regret it. Easy to make and comfortable to wear.

  5. Emily Frank Schimelfenyg (verified owner)

    It was a quick sew, but with a great, cute trendy look. Love the easy to read instructions.

  6. Stephanie Durbin (verified owner)

    This pattern is flattering on all shapes and sizes! The hem options give very different looks and can be dressed up or down based on fabric choice. I love the fitted arms and waistband – they hide my belly while still looking trendy.

  7. Fiona Cameron (verified owner)

    3 pattern pieces to make a top was great. Quick, easy, feminine. Choose medium weight knit for drape.

  8. Rachel Bowles (verified owner)

    I was skeptical BUT I LOVE it and can’t wait to make more. It would be flattering on so many shapes too.

  9. Nell Simon (verified owner)

    Love how fast and easy it is to put together. Get it! It is truly a great pattern!!

  10. Jennifer Lichak (verified owner)

    I love the neckline and binding technique. It really is simple and straightforward. The Dreamy Drape top is a flowing and loose fitting top. It’s a simple shape with a lot of movement that will flatter ladies figures. Fabric choice is a big deal! Make sure to pick fabric with a lot of drape to achieve a flowing look. The banded version is great for maternity bellies and the diagonal hem is so perfect for nursing mamas.

  11. Melissa Sertich (verified owner)

    Definitely get it! So versatile!

  12. Jessica Hooley (verified owner)

    It is so quick to make! And still very chic. I love it!

  13. Leanne Miller (verified owner)

    If you are looking for a quick sew, simple but elegant styling, something that is a little bit different but stylish and certainly suitable for lots of occasions this is the top to purchase. It is simply the choice of fabric that will make all the difference in your wardrobe. Yet again another lovely pattern with options that will suit many. Fabric is the key to getting a good fit.

    Quick, easy, in style.

  15. Lauren Sisk (verified owner)

    It is the most rewarding sew, and one that anyone can enjoy… from the beginner sewist to the most experienced. This pattern is a wonderful blend of casual, classy, and even dressy… it is all how you wear and pair it. It is a perfect beginner’s knit pattern. Everything was self explanatory, simple, and well done. I love the simplicity and quickness of the sew. It is a quality, professional finish top that takes no time at all. I whipped up 2 ladies Mediums in 2 hours from cut-finish. That is a phenomenal thing for ladies clothing.

  16. Johanne Laurendeau (verified owner)

    I really love it and I feel it is perfect for every shape even for mom to be 🙂

  17. Karen Bouwhuis (verified owner)

    With a pattern like this you won’t regret it. Its a beautiful top no matter which option you choose. It’s such a fast and simple sew. This top is so comfortable and easy to move around in. It’s become a staple in my wardrobe.

  18. Kiran Grewal (verified owner)

    BUY IT! It’s super comfy. Love the final fit.

  19. Kimberly Richardson (verified owner)

    I really like attaching the neckband right after sewing the shoulders, it’s so much easier to press that way.

  20. Kayla (verified owner)

    I purchased this thinking it would be great for a transitional top for maternity to nursing. After making only one I know this is much more than I expected! This is going to be a staple in my capsule wardrobe! This may be my favorite top pattern ever! The versatility is boundless.

  21. Lucy Lloyd (verified owner)

    I love a quick and easy sew just as much as I love to match clothes with my mini and the Dreamy Drape certainly delivers! What’s more, this pattern makes this mama feel fashionable as well as comfy. The perfect mom uniform! As always the instructions are super clear and so easy to follow- this is a pattern I will be using time and time again

  22. Cristy Barnes (verified owner)

    I love this top.! So simple and quick to make and so comfy to wear!

  23. Michelle Ryan (verified owner)

    A quick and fun sew that is perfect for the novice seamstress. The step by step directions help you to sew up the garment and even offers tips throughout. I cannot wait to sew up another one!

  24. Ana Inês Barros (verified owner)

    It’s too amazing to describe with words. Just sew it and wear it. It’s fabulous <3

  25. Katie Kennedy (verified owner)

    Sewing this top is a piece of cake! I love how simple it is, but the lines have big impact. It’s flowy and incredibly comfortable to wear, just perfect in brushed hacci. There’s a lot of roominess in the shape, so this is also a pattern I feel comfortable making as a gift when I don’t have exact measurements.

  26. Susan Anderson (verified owner)

    I love the dreamy drape. It is a great pattern for a quick sew that always looks great. I love that it is forgiving so it will make the perfect outfit for Holiday celebrations.

  27. Bonnie Hillman Riley (verified owner)

    It’s such an easy pattern, and it gives absolutely fantastic results. It’s a quick sew, and it’s perfect for a drapey fabric like double-brushed poly. This one is a keeper, a winner, a sew-again-and-again. Time to get some more DBP!

  28. Ellen Valarida (verified owner)

    This pattern is beautiful! The batwing is just the right amount. The fitted sleeve at the bottom helps balance the looseness of the batwing out.

  29. Ellen Valarida (verified owner)

    I love how quickly this pattern comes together! So comfortable and took me 2 hrs to cut and sew.

  30. Chris M Shapiro (verified owner)

    What a fun pattern. Fun to sew and so fun to wear! The drape of this top is perfect to pair with slim pants, leggings and pencil skirts! The lower sleeves are so fun. They wear like tall cuffs. I’m loving this pattern!

  31. Beth Partain (verified owner)

    I like how this turned out!

  32. Michelle Talaski (verified owner)

    Quick and easy sew. Fit was great and the top is really comfortable to wear!

  33. Tori Priest (verified owner)

    What a great, easy, fast sew! Can’t believe I had this pattern sitting on my shelf for months before I finally sewed it up!

  34. Erica Nemnich (verified owner)

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this pattern. Love how super easy it is to make. From cut to finish was 30 minutes!!! Have already made 2 so far and plans for many more.

  35. Bonnie Riley (verified owner)

    Love, love, love this pattern – it’s quick, easy, comfortable, and so darned cute. I’ve made three so far – for two daughters and one for a granddaughter, and there will definitely be more! It’s the perfect pattern for double-brushed poly.

  36. Allison Tierney (verified owner)

    A super quick and satisfying sew. I love how comfy this top is to wear!

  37. Cara Girven (verified owner)

    Such a quick and fun sew! With different options for the bottom, sleeves, and neckline, you can make this pattern over and over. Lovely in nice drapey fabrics like rayon spandex or bamboo or even a light sweater knit. Instructions are clear and easy to follow with lots of photos. This pattern is perfect for a beginner sewist!

  38. Jackie Henderson (verified owner)

    I am finally getting the hang of knits!! This was a “dream” to sew up using a serger. The style is on point and my college girl loves it. I still prefer woven fabric but RP is making it easy to gain confidence with knit!

  39. Cordelia Henderson (verified owner)

    Even though this was a knit top, it was fun to sew and it’s so pretty!!

  40. Lisa Bond (verified owner)

    I really struggle with over-sized garments, but couldn’t resist sewing up the Dreamy Drape in the Floral bright fabric. I love it, I added some simple pocket to add some detail. Will definetly be making up the Dreamy Drape add on – in the dress!!

  41. Annick Campenaerts (verified owner)

    This sweater doesn’t only look comfortable, it also fits like that! It’s like walking in your pajamas. There will be many more!

  42. Ana Inês Barros (verified owner)

    Dreamy Drape is THE dreamy pattern. I love this style so much I have done 5 tops in the last months. You have to try it too.

  43. Laura Wheelis (verified owner)

    Love this pattern! I made the banded hem option and it is super comfortable with leggings in the winter!

  44. Lisa Lazenby (verified owner)

    I made this and a Peggy Pencil from cut to finish one night to wear to work the next day! It’s a quick sew and when done in the right fabric, has amazing drape. It’s a beautiful staple garment. Love this pattern.

  45. Shelley Clark (verified owner)

    This is the first knit pattern I’ve ever done. I was apprehensive when I started and I did have a few struggles but the pattern is so easy to follow and well written and I just had issues working with the fabric. My daughter LOVED the finished product and is already asking me to make another one. I will be making more in the future.

  46. Sarah Miller (verified owner)

    This top is so quick and easy to make. It’s comfortable, stylish AND very flattering on all body types. I’ll definitely be making more!

  47. Jennifer Reeves (verified owner)

    This is a great, quick sew pattern. It’s simple but gorgeous and so easy to dress up or down! This is a “must” pattern for sure!
