This is a fun and quick pattern (once you have wrapped your head around the clever collar)! Sweet video to help with that. So many lovely variations.

This is a very easy to follow pattern with direct links to construction video clips in the tutorial. The cut is flattering across all the sizes & body types. When you look at the finished product – you simply can’t believe how quick & easy it is to put together. The very first day I wore my first tunic out & about – I was asked several times where I bought it. You know you have a winner when that happens! I plan on making several variations of this pattern for my wardrobe. I also teach sewing classes & this will be in the lineup for students to purchase & sew during the class – I think it will be a great one for newbies. Thank you for such a wonderful pattern with all the extras!

This dress has a lot of options, so the possibilities are endless. I had someone tell me I looked like I walked off of a Pinterest page while wearing it. 🙂 The tutorial is awesome, and even includes video links for some techniques. This is a quick and easy pattern, and easily ranks as a favorite for me.

I have never been a huge fan of cowls for the fit and finickiness of the drape, however this pattern has totally changed my mind on that! This top/dress has a great fit! Its not too tight and not too loose. The cowl sits very nice and doesn’t show off too much cleavage. It also works as a great nursing top as you can just pull the cowl down. I have made a a shirt, tunic and swing dress so far and plan on making a few more. It is also a really easy, quick sew with easy to follow directions.

After watching a tutorial for the Camilla on Lifting Pins and Needles, I had to try it. It’s one of my favorite makes. I‘ve only made the sleeveless version but I got tons of compliments on it. Love that it looks more difficult to sew but it’s easy. The Camilla Cowl is a great pattern!
