A review of Helen's Closet Gilbert Top

Reviewed by Purplesewingcloud on 15th July, 2020

I’m always reluctant to make shirts as the fitting always seems like a big process but this pattern removed all of that.

I made a view A, size 18 in the d cup size range and made ZERO adjustments which is a total miracle. The fit for me is perfect, its slouchy and comfortable without looking too over sized and has a great casual feel.

The collar looks tricky but with helens great instructions it comes together like a dream! all her steps and detailed with great visual diagrams.

If you’re an experienced sewist looking for a great casual shirt this is the one. If you’re a beginner and looking for something similar but feel intimidated I would also recommend this pattern, the instructions will take you through every step of the way and her blog also has great advice and ideas to hack the pattern.

I cant recommend it enough!
