When a friend asked if I could make the same top for her I knew I had a winner. (She couldn't believe I made it at first even though she knew I was an excellent sewist!)
I sewed the pattern in 3 different knit fabrics and each product looks entirely different. I easily altered the pattern to add long ruched cuffs--taking out the rushing going down the sides of the arms. I also added a ruched band to the bottom of one as I didn't like the way the fabric rolled to the front--fabric problem not pattern problem.
I added stay tape to the shoulders for stability--was surprised the feature was not recommended in the instructions.
Loved the pattern so much that I bought another pattern--the fringed skirt.

This was so easy and a great fit! I can tell this will be a favorite pattern for me. Can't wait to make more of these! The pattern was true to the size I would buy in the store. The instructions are very well illustrated and explained.

The sizing was very good. I did a trial shirt and won't have to change a thing. I like the format of the directions. I needed a reminder to always read the entire directions before starting a project!

I have purchased $20 patterns before and wondered why I spent so much on them. I have taken two of Angela's Craftsy classes and learned so much, that I thought I should purchase her pattern. What a surprise it was to get such an awesome pattern with excellent instructions. Well worth the cost. I love everything about the Ruched T. Thanks for including the twill tape too.

Wow, a pattern that has a nice style and fits. Can't ask for more than that. I sewed it in one sitting and have gotten lots of compliments.
Thanks for the personal note and twill tape.

Never liked knit sweater patterns....the fit did not look like RTW.
Completed one last night, thrilled, it just looks great. Shoulders are perfect, will make more. Booklet instructions are a nice touch.
First time I purchase a pattern not from a large company, will most likely purchase more.

This is a great pattern for so many reasons. Firstly, I loved the quality of the paper the pattern is printed on. No flimsy tissue paper. And the little message from Angela on the pattern is a nice personal touch. The instructions are detailed and clear and I love the spiral bound book option. I also really liked the styling and shape of the finished garment. It just seemed to have a better shape than some commercial patterns I have tried. I did have to alter the patter to get the correct fit but they were minor adjustments. And if you are stuck, you can always email Angela for help. I will be making a few of these in different colours. I also have the jeans pattern so I can't wait to get into that!

I always had a hard time with fitting because I am extremely short waisted. I made the top using the size measurements supplied and it fit perfectly. And , once cut out, it took about 30 minutes to put together. I love it!

From the looks of it the pattern will be great. As an old school teacher I so appreciate great directions and layouts. I have almost finished one online class of Angela's which has been great and have a couple more in My Craftsy waiting for when I have time. Thanks again Angela for sharing your expertise.

My Pattern arrived swiftly and in good shape. Love the spiral bound instructions! The paper is very nice to work with, heavy and well marked. Thank you for the Twill Tape and your note was appreciated.
