    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! 🙂

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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

    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!

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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

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