Pattern Review - Lesley Flutter Top for Women

I am so excited to be reviewing a pattern as part of the Seamingly Smitten Summer 2014 pattern tour. 

As you may know, most of the sewing I do is for children or items around the home and I have only made one thing for myself recently which was a skirt. 

So I chose to review the  Lesley Flutter Top for Women which would give me a new item for my wardrobe and a different style to what I normally wear.

The pattern instructions where very easy to follow, well laid out and is aimed towards the beginner sewer. 

The pattern caters for a wide range of sizes 0-26 (XS-XXXL) - USA sizes, but does come with a comprehensive sizing chart so you can select which size suits you. 

Petite, Regular and tall hem lengths are included and there is also an option for a contrasting band.

Well written instructions, a heap of photos, a table of fabric requirements, and suggestions for suitable fabrics  - I chose a silky satin,  this pattern is a must have for any pattern collection.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                            I am quite pleased with how the top  turned out and could actually see a number of these in my wardrobe. 


This top is so versatile and roomy that it could be 
teamed with a long-sleeve top to wear in the cooler months.

I must admit to feeling apprehensive about posting photos of myself but thanks to some wonderful feedback here we are.
