A sunshine staple!

A review of Helen's Closet Gilbert Top

Reviewed by @lynnsewsnow on 30th March, 2022

This is my first Gilbert Top – a lovely pattern, with top notch instructions as always from Helen’s Closet, which I was thrilled to receive as a lovely prize in an Instagram challenge. I love the open collar and those little ties on this version of the pattern.

A few details:

  • I cut a size 16 from the sizes 12 – 30 (D cup) option with my usual high round back adjustment and a full bicep adjustment.
  • Lengthened sleeve 1” as a personal preference.
  • Fabric is a Robert Kaufman cotton chambray which had been imprisoned in my stash just waiting for the right pattern to come along – it was a lovely sew and feels so light and airy to wear.

I can see this pattern becoming a staple when it’s warm enough in Scotland to get the arms out! ?
