Fantail sweatshirt

Made up the sweatshirt in French Terry and it came together beautifully. Fit is lovely and the pattern instructions were super clear. Love the elastic detail on the front that elevates it from being a simple sweater to something a bit more special.

fantail sweatshirt

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.

Fantail shirt

I love this pattern. Great drafting, excellent tutorial and pics. The fit is spot on. There will be many of these tops in my wardrobe from now on.
