    5 out of 5 Floreat Top for the summer

    Pattern Description: a blouse and dress pattern with an asymmetrical front hem. Can be made sleeveless or with short or long sleeves in a woven or a knitted fabric. The pattern has a different neckline and sleeve patterns for the knit fabric versions included.

    Pattern Sizing: 0 to 20

    Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes

    Were the instructions easy to follow? I did not really use them as I am experienced and do not necessarily need instructions other than checking for sizing and seam/hem allowances. Therefore, I cannot comment on how good or bad they are.

    Fabric Used: 1m of cotton lawn

    Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I cut a size 6 (based on finished garment measurements compared to my body measurements) and used a 1 cm seam allowance instead of 1.5 cm as instructed. I used the interfacing as facings and then fused it directly to the main fabric to reduce bulk.

    Fit: It fits well. Maybe a little too tight in the back. It’s not tight enough for me to want to size up. Please keep in mind that I cut a smaller size than my bust measurement would advise.
    Watch out for: if making this in a woven fabric, consider stay-stitching the front hem to prevent it from stretching out of shape as some of it is cut on the bias.

    Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes. I want to make the dress version as well. I’ll probably be making this one a few times before I am done with this pattern.
