A review of Helen's Closet Gilbert Top

Reviewed by Helen Carmichael on 17th July, 2020

Am very happy with the fit and how this turned out. I made a size 14 from the D cup size version, using all the adjustments on the Helen’s Closet blog to modify this into a sleeveless blouse (adjustments to shoulder angle, armscye, yolk, and binding instructions.)

I found the burrito method yoke instructions needed to be followed carefully, but they worked beautifully and thanks to the other tips in the pattern I think the finish is really nice, inside and out.

I chose to use 4 small buttons for my lightweight lawn fabric.

This is a really nice intermediate difficulty pattern and I will definitely be making another view in future.
