    This was so much easier than it looks! Great pattern!

    Such a fun and unique pattern! Finished product looks more complex than it really is. With such a well written pattern, it is so easy to do with great step by step pictures to follow. The nursing option is AWESOME! I hate wearing nursing shirts that look like nursing shirts but no one can tell its so nursing friendly just by looking which also means it can still be stylishly worn after nursing days are over.

    The best fitting pattern I’ve tried! I’ve made the maternity top and maternity dress and they could not possibly fit me any better. I can’t wait to make some non-maternity items from this pattern!

    Love this pattern! It looks more complicated than it is. Love that it takes into account the cup sizes not just chest size – so it provides great coverage while being comfortable and dare I say a bit sexy!

    Love this shirt so much! It’s cute, flattering, and works well with my growing belly. I want a whole wardrobe of them!

    This pattern is top notch and has so many options! With the clear instructions you will make a top that looks much more difficult to sew up than it is.

    I had this pattern for over a month before I finally broke down and started making it. I was super scared thinking it was going to be complicated. Boy was I wrong. Her instructions made everything go together so smoothly. Perfect fit and all. Buy it! You won’t be sorry.
