Instant download available immediately after checkout includes:

1. Instructions

2. PAH Pattern file (PAH=Print at home)

My new favourite top

I sewed the Egret sleeveless top a few months ago in crepe silk and I have been wearing it a lot! A simple and quick sew, but so comfy and chic. I am about to make another in a lightweight cotton and I am sure many more versions of it will follow.

Great pattern, easy to sew.

Pattern is easy to print. I Particularly like the inclusion of a shortened version of the instructions for experienced sewers alongside the detailed ones for those less experienced.

So simple but flattering design

This pattern is great! I’ve made the 3 quarter sleeve and the sleeveless versions so far, both in viscose, and have really enjoyed wearing them and the compliments I have received. I made a straight size 8 which is a size down from my usual UK dress size 10- I looked at the finished garment measurements to gauge this. I did have a go at the dress version, but chose a too thick fabric (velvet) for my figure (no waist) so I would agree with a previous reviewer that thinner fabrics work best- silk charmeuse is on my list. I think you get a lot for your money with Sewing Revival patterns and the designs are classics with a twist and won’t date. Thanks!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review and upload some photos of your Egret tops Maria. They look fabulous - and as you have already noted, our fabric recommendations highlight lighter well draped fabrics (rayon/viscose/silk) so if you work within that your dress will turn out just as well I am sure. Kind regards, Janine.

Easy, satisfying make

Love this top (I made the one with the gathered sleeves). It was easy to sew up and pretty quick, although I needed to slim down the sides as it was quite roomy. I'm looking forward to making a few more in different fabrics from my stash (yay! Stash-busting!). Love the gathered neckline, so flattering. I made mine in a lightweight cotton to wear with my Classic Pants and they look great together!

Egret dress

I have made two tops and one dress from the pattern. Each came together pretty well. I really like the gathered neckline as it suits me well. I hacked the dress a bit - adding longer sleeves and a tier at the bottom for winter.

Egret Dress and top

I am really happy with the finished product although it had its challenges. I measured between a size 14 and 16 and went with the 14 which was to big for me. I needed to take the dress in because the arm holes gaped so much. I chose the option of the gathered middle and did not like how this looked on me so I un-picked and was very happy with the belt instead. I had some material left over and made a size 12 top and it was a perfect fit.

Easy Pattern

I love Sewing Revival Patterns, this is probably the 10th garment I have made using them. The ease of being able to download and print at home. I am happy with my egret top. I used a cotton/linen mix fabric, which made the neck a bit bulky, so I increased the length of the elastic and it made it more comfortable around my neck. I recommend using a lighter weight fabric. Overall I am super happy with the result and will definitely be making again .

Great communicator as I had some questions. Quick to respond and very helpful indeed. Great price too. I have cut the pattern out but yet to sew as life is busy. Love the way you get so many variations to the pattern for one low price. Thank you

So quick and super stylish.

So easy to navigate the pattern. I will make this dress/shirt 10 more times before I’ve exhausted the different results.
