Great summer top
This is a keeper. Quick, easy, super flattering and fun to sew. I'm not a mom and it works really well as a regular top.

This is my first pattern purchase from Jalie and it is perfect! The sizing was perfect to what my measurements are. The top went together faster than I thought and was just right. No ripping out, perfect fit, and easy to follow directions. I will make many more tops with this pattern. (not a nursing mother and pattern is still great for all of us. )

Attractive, modern appearance!
The top has a modern appearance, and sewed up quickly. The partially floating front (under the "cross-over") would be great for nursing mothers! Wish I had one when I was nursing my babies! For my top, I stitched the front to the under-most criss-cross panel, most of the way across. It felt more comfortable that way. The flutter sleeves are easy and attractive.

Good pattern, instructions slightly unclear
On the whole I love this pattern. Have made it four times now. My only criticism is that when it comes to the very last step of stitching or tacking the front to the bodice it's very hard to work out where to place the stitches and for what length.

Stylish and easy to sew
I have made two of these tops on my serger for two different mothers to be. Both women love their top and have requested another one be made for them.

Love this top
I made this top in a serger class 2 years ago. I just made it again in fabric I purchased at a sewing expo. It is a great top! I have nearly worn out the first one I made. It is very quickly made and fits flawlessly. The only thing I do baste the side seam where many layers come together before serging slippery knit fabric. The top is very stylish and goes well both with jeans and dressier pants. This is wonderfully simple to construct and can entirely be made on the serger if you have a coverstitch on your serger (although I do baste as noted above).

Great top for nursing mothers
I sewed two of this top three years ago with my daughter, wore them every week up to and into my son's pregnancy til I was about 27 weeks. Now I'm wearing them again, and I'm planning to make more - including lengthening this in to a dress version! I also did lettuce edging which is a very pretty finish.
