    brilliant pattern, made the shirt in viscose linen blend, but added about 5 inches to make it hip length, and the dress in cotton sateen with no changes, both fit beautifully. Then made a 2nd dress in Viscose challis ommiting the back pleat, and works equally well, interested that someone increased the arm length to make a full sleeve, i think i will have a go at this, as the sleeves were a bit of a chore for me in viscos challis fabric, think this dress requires a heavier weight fabric. will definately make again, in both shirt and dress varieties, with increased sleeve this time for some variation.

    I made the shirt. This was a terrific pattern that had interesting shaping and style lines for a simple top. The button placement is brilliant. Excellent drafting. I lengthened it about 2.5 inches. I’ll make it again .

    Well crafted pattern in which all the pieces fit together very well. I added a elbow length sleeve and kept the front construction the same but put an overlapped seam down the front to prevent that horrible fear of gaps or unbuttoned buttons All of the changes worked well and I love this comfortable and stylish dress!

    Not the dress for me. Looked like a housecoat. Was so hoping for a great dress. Just not a style for my body. Did size down to a ten but could have used an 8.

    I recently made the Monty Top using TomKat Stitchery’s Sew along on Youtube. It was my first time making a collar and a front opening with so many buttons! I do not know if I could have done it without TomKat and wouldn’t call it easy for sure. I made it out of a loosely woven wool fabric and regret it as my washer nearly ruined it during the first cycle. Not a fault of the pattern but something I would recommend you watch out for in choosing your fabric! Very cropped, a plus for me.

    Great patttern. Easy to make. I also altered it and made the bottom front 1 piece on the fold. Both blouses are pretty.

    A lovely blouse, but the poor instructions were pretty much useless. A pattern marked as easy ought to have a much more detailed instruction as many moments were not easy., not even for a semi-experiensed sewist.
    The marks on the pattern ought to have some kind of explanation.

    trés joli modèle , bien taillé , élégant
    mais les explications sont insuffisantes
    J’ai heureusement été aidée ( pour le col!!) avec les “tutos” sur internet…..
    Je conseille malgré tout

    This is a really great pattern love how my shirt turned out, I made my shirt out of a Batik and use a light weight interfacing for collar and front facing, the instructions were a little lacking in the info for applying the collar, but ! I made it through!

How Do I Know What Size I Am?

Choosing your pattern size is the most important step and we will help you determine this with these easy to follow steps.

  1. When taking your measurements ensure that you take them against your skin and not over clothing. One can wear a comfortable bra and knickers whilst measuring, as this will provide you with the most accurate measurements.
  2. Tape measure has to sit firmly around the points you are measuring. But be careful not to pull it too tight, as this will give you the incorrect size.
  3. When measuring circumferences (B, C, D, E) it is important to note that the tape measure must remain parallel to the floor. It is sometimes best to take the measurements in front of a mirror; this will help you see the angle of the tape measure.
  4. You will only require the basic body measurements to determine your pattern size which is indicated on our mannequin below:
A. Shoulder Breadth

Place the tape at the edge of the shoulder. Measure along the top of the shoulder blade/across the highest point of the shoulders to the other edge, following the natural slope and allow an extra finger for ease of any movement.

B. Upper Arm Girth

This point is taken as a circumference at your widest point of your upper arm.

C. Bust

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the fullest part of your chest.

D. Waist

This point is taken as a circumference and taken at the smallest part of your waist.

E. Hip

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the widest part of your hips.
