Petrol/gold fun top
A review of I AM Patterns Gaïa Top
Pattern: Gaia by I AM Patterns is a sleeveless cami top with a V-shaped neckline. The ribbon is used to gather the fabric at the shoulders.
Sizing: EU 36 to 46 (for my make I cut a size 40)
Fabric: 0.85 m Atelier Brunette Stardust fabric
Notions: 2m gold bias tape 1cm wide (double fold)
Modifications: did a swayback of 1cm at the centre back, and later after making a wearable toile, I took a wedge 1 cm at the shoulder point going into nothing at the neckline. Also, I used a 3 cm deep hem, rather than the 2 cm as instructed.
Fit: good. Apart from the neckline and armholes, there is not much else to fit as the top is a loose garment.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?: yes
Watch out for: this pattern is so simple and beginner-friendly that I did not find faults with it.
Make Again?: yes, I’ll be making many more versions of this. It’s been added to my list of TNT (Tried and tested patterns list).
