2 Sleeveless Gilberts !

A review of Gilbert Top

Reviewed by Love, Lucie on 6th September, 2021

I followed the sleeveless hack on the Helens Closet blog which was brilliant. I never would have achieved such success without it. I had no idea about the changes to the armscye that were needed so that it didn’t look like you’d just chopped the arms off.

Helen also advised to size down, as you need less room to maintain movement when you have no sleeves. The advice was spot on.

I choose to include 2 pockets on both shirts, the pattern only uses one, so you couldn’t see my bra through the light weight fabrics.

My measurements put me at a size 12, so I sized down to a size 10. I used the ‘B’ cup pattern.
