I like the look, it’s really pretty. It doesn’t sit flat though at the back neck. Sewing was easy and fast 🙂
Katie Kennedy –
What a magical, simple top! I’m not sure I’ve ever sewn anything wearable so fast! This is so pretty to pair over a bralette, and fun for spring and summer weather.
Beth Partain –
I can’t believe how fast this came together.
Kyra Delaney –
So simple! Minimal pages to print, only one piece to cut, and only five seams to sew (and a bit of gathering). This is perfect if you want a simple lightweight cover so you can wear your workout bra while working out. The edges are unfinished (since knit doesn’t unravel) making it simple to sew without requiring a band or hem.

Sew sew simple to sew and great for workouts. Only thing is it was far too big for me, and needed to size down even though size S is. My normal size
Emma Polley –
Wow! This top is so quick to sew, I had it printed & sewn in under an hour, including taking the time to put my 3 kids to bed! The back twists are not only a great design feature but also keeps you nice and cool during a workout!
Samantha Burton –
Very fast and easy to make. I love the way this top fits and looks. I cant wait to make more and maybe even hack it to finish off the edges!
Kelly Tuttle –
Love this top. This is THE perfect top for working out and I could see even lengthening it into a dress for a cute beach cover up. VERY quick and easy to sew, and just super stylish!
Shaina Mack –
The Ladies Twist Top sewing pattern is probably the easiest and quickest thing I’ve ever sewn. In an hour this pattern was assembled, fabric cut and top was finished. If you are new to sewing with knits this is a great pattern to try because its easy to make and doesn’t require advanced techniques.
Kelle Lujan –
Super quick and easy sew. Zero hems to finish, one pattern piece to cut, and four seams to sew. The Twist Top couldn’t be simpler or easier. A great addition to your exercise or everyday wardrobe.
Angel Pooley –
Loved it after I completed my second in 2 hours, as the first I did the twists wrong, but lovely quick sew. And will use it in the gym a lot I think!
Debbie Prince –
Super fast make, takes less than a hour! Need to be neat with your scisors though so the raw edges are perfect. x
Jane Hand –
What a quick and easy sew! I found the twisted shoulders were inclined to come untwisted during construction, but once I had that sorted, it was a simplistic straightforward sew. A really great pattern for newbies who look for a quick result with minimal effort.
Erica Nemnich –
Super quick pattern. Love how it works up and the twist!
Erica Nemnich –
Very quick sew. You can get this done in less than an hour!
Juliana Garibaldi –
I love the Twist Strap Top Ladies!! You can use it to gym, with jeans or with our lovely Celine trouser!! It is a versatile top!!
Donna Lowe –
This is a simple and easy pattern. It is great for beginner and a wonder addition to your activewear. It is comfortable and I already have plans to make more.
Stacey Williams –
I am a large woman who would probably never wear this top outside but, I tell you what, I will make many more of these tops to wear around my house and yard. These are perfect for the dog days of summer !
Nali Nali –
The look of this outfit depends on the fabric used. My mid- weight knit is too stiff and the back does not drap well. It is however a very easy and fun sew. I will be making another.
Corrine Smith –
A very quick sew and alot of fun to wear.
Chiara Kruse –
Get ready for summer with this twist back top! This is one of the fastest sews ever, leaving you with plenty of time to enjoy some sunshine. It is also the perfect top to showcase all the fancy back bras 🙂
June Butchee –
The Twist Strap Top is a super easy, quick sew that adds to your workout wardrobe. Add the leggings and the Bralette you’ll have a complete, comfortable set of clothes to work out in.
Amber Stefanick –
This was an amazingly fast sew! This top will be cute to throw on with leggings as part of my “mom uniform” and will be great for hot days.
Khirya Littoria –
Quick, simple… my daughter loves it.
Jamie Adler –

This top is super cute and yet so easy and quick to make. Im excited for the weather to get warm and go hiking wearing this twisted trap top.
Amber Flanary –
Super quick and easy sew! I absolutely love how it hangs, and can’t wait to make some more for working out this summer!
Jess Boaz-Head –
This is the easiest and fastest thing to sew and the results are adorable!
Nadia Cadby –
I love this! Made in Lycra to match my sport leggings and took them both out for a run on the common as soon as I’d finished it. Super easy pattern and a really fast sew. I’m going to have a wardrobe full of these I can tell.
Kristie Harris Tingle –
The twist top was a fast and easy sew! Perfect for those who need a quick top with little time to make it. No finishing required!
Tasha Larson –
Quick sew of unique workout shirt.
Laura Wheelis –
SO EASY! Seriously if you forget to do laundry and need a comfortable workout tank for that yoga class in an hour – just make this. I had it finished before my laundry was done. I really like loose fitting tops when I have to sweat, and this one fit the bill. The open back will keep me cool this summer in Texas!
Stephanie Koehler –
Quick sew. I suggest using a two sided fabric. Just one pattern to cut. I used the AO and my projector and was done in 45 minutes. Made it with. Tie Dye Double Brushed Polly.
Emma Gerrard –
Super quick pattern! It was cut out and made up within an hour as the instructions were easy to follow and simple. Enjoyed working with a knit fabric which I don’t normally do so it was great to start with a simple project!
Devorah Zamansky –
This is my third time making this pattern and I love it!. The pattern can be made in under an hour and most of that time is spent piecing the pattern together. From the first cut of the fabric to the last stitch took me no more than half an hour. The instructions are clear and I love that there are multiple options for the gathers. I used the “double line of stitching” option because I’ve done it many times before and am comfortable with it.
Christine Burrows –
I really enjoyed making this. It was easier than I expected and I think that was because the pattern was so easy to follow. Where it could have been confusing the instructions and pictures showed me just what to do. A cute top that is a bit different!
