Fan tail top

Well I’m always a bit stressed using a new pattern and especially a pdf, but my daughter helped me and printed it out etc etc. I was a bit stuck with the side seams where they aren’t the same length BUT I put it aside for a little while and destressed and I reckon alls good Having said that I’m going to make more and I want to buy a long pants pattern as well. I will post a pic of the top when I finish it

Versatile and stylish

I've made 4 of the Fantail now, the first in a linen which I made as per the sizing. I'm a little apple dumpling so being worried about the height of the front, I did lengthen by an inch after the first one. Made another three versions, two in sweatshirt and one in viscose all with the extra inch. After wearing them a few times each now, I realise I really don't need that extra inch afterall. I think going forward I will stick to the standard size as per the chart..

Great instructions!

This top was easy to sew and looks great on. Instructions were really easy to use. I would recommend making the size down from your measurements as it is quite roomy around the neck otherwise.

Fantail Sweatshirt

A great versatile pattern. I have made this with lots of different material, linen, spandex & french terry, all adding something a bit different. Great pattern to follow for a novice sewer.

Hi excellent pattern. Great result. I am usually a size 10 which is the pattern size I used and it is spot on. i like that the back is not too long and gives a really nice line from front to back. Thanks.

I love this pattern so simple and quick to make - I’m an advanced newbie and didn’t have any problems , so much so that I made a second one and am planning a third in so lighter weight fabric.

Simple and easy to follow instructions

Another super easy pattern to follow. This top has a lovely relaxed fit. Looking forward to making it in a more drapey fabric next time (this was in cotton) and will probably go down a size.

So on trend

Great pattern, clear instructions and good fit. If doing a woven fabric again I would either use bias binding on the neck or make the facing bigger as it tends to want to flip up. Otherwise very happy

Very Versatile Top

Again a great pattern from start to finish. I made it in a cotton mini gingham, but used stretch ribbing instead of elastic in the cuffs. I love top stitching, so did quite a bit of this in red. Love it!

Easy to follow pattern, although the sizing seemed a bit off- it was a lot wider at the base than I expected so would go down a size next time.

Fantail

Detailed instructions that are supported by many photos making it an achievable make for all levels. Very wearable, with the detail of the elastic front to pull it all in together, as well as taking it from a top, to a designer look top. Thanks for another super product. I have only made one of these so far, but anticipate another couple of fantails in my wardrobe soon. I did need to take about 5 cm out of the width of the sleeve to suit my body, but easily done.
