A review of Natalie Top
-Fabric Used: Rayon from Cali Fabric
-Instructions: The instructions were straight forward. I had a little difficulty with the neck binding, but as soon as I stopped reading ahead and actually worked my way up to that part, it was simple.
-Ease of Use: Pretty straight forward, all the diagrams are drawn, so I love that!
-Alterations: I graded this from a medium at the bust to a large at the hips per my mom’s measurements and it fits her great!
-Finished Project: My finished project looked exactly like the line drawings!
-Like / Dislike: I didn’t expect to like this pattern as much as I did, but it looks fantastic and now I want one for me. If I were to make it again, I would shorten the arms or place the button tab up higher as I’d like the sleeves to be rolled up more.
Difficulty: This pattern is pretty simple, I would recommend it for a beginner to sewing clothing for themselves.
-Recommendation: I would recommend this pattern to a friend.
-Size: Medium at the bust and large at the hips.
