    Thank you.

  15. Your photo shoot turned out great! I love this top. The banded sleeve is my new favorite. It fits so comfortably. Huge win!

  16. You are such a babe. What a great pattern!

  17. BUYING IT!

  18. PLEASE make this in plus sizes! I love it!

  19. Where is the sizing and yardage chart?

  20. Carrie – The sizing and yardage, along with finished measurements, are in the pattern, but let me know if you have any specific questions and I’m happy to help or send them over to you!

  21. I would like to know the body measurements, specifically
    Size L, XL, and XXL.

  22. I was wondering too what the finished measurements are of the xxl? I’m plus size and looking at this top. It’s really an adorable pattern!

  23. Cari – the measurements for XXL are: Bust – 44-46″, Waist – 36-38″, Hip – 46-48″. Hope that helps!

  24. Fun! I actually DIY-ed a pattern similar to this for myself, and I love it. I wear it all the time, and it’s so comfortable. I’ll be sure to recommend this to friends!

  25. Thanks for the measurements!

  26. Ooo, where does that butterfly fabric come from? I love it!

  27. This top looks super comfy and so flattering, I’m definitely going to pick out some cute knit fabric and give it a try.

    Question – Do you have any tips for altering into a maternity friendly top?

  28. Danielle – I got the butterfly fabric from!

    Kursty13 – I would just add some length to the front piece – it’s a fairly long top as it is, but an added curve of a few inches would probably get you through to the end!

  29. So I made one and love it. My question is can you do a kids pattern? I would love to have this shirt for my girls. Especially since my oldest is so tall for her age, she is 6, and I have to buy two sizes to big to get them long enough for her. Pretty please.
    Thanks for an amazing pattern!

  30. I am in love with this top. It is the first time I’ve ever sewn for myself or a clothing item for an adult lol! It turned out wonderful and I have ordered more knits to make more for myself! Thanks for a wonderful pattern!

  31. yay, I just bought this pattern- I’m so excited! It’s a present for someone….shh!

  33. Is there a sizing chart and list of fabric requirements? It’s hard to determine whether or not I want to buy the pattern without those details.

Fabric requirements range from 1-2yd, depending on size and options chosen (XS with no bands requires 1yd, XXL with all bands requires 2yd).
