Love it!

I used left over from my stash to toile a top and it turned out beautiful! I will be making the dress and a few more tops in the future. I used a lemon and white wide striped top and didn’t find the neckline too difficult as I watched Megan’s tutorial on her website 😊

Jersey fabric . . . .

Decided to try the long sleeve top in a cotton lycra jersey fabric and it worked!! Super careful not to stretch the neckline out and stay stitched to be sure. Also slimmed down the sleeve from elbow to cuff so I could push up comfortably.

Pleased with end result - super comfy top with lovely neckline,

Cute and breezy

As always the MN patterns are fabulous. There is one tricky step - getting the corners of the v insert on the front bodice - but it’s easy of you use a stable fabric such as a cotton. I used a lightweight tencel viscose blend and had to do a lot unpicking, but the problem was my fabric not the pattern. I’m
surprised that this pattern isn’t more widely known - it’s so versatile, great to hack (try extending the sleeves or replacing with on trend balloon style and/or adjusting the skirt length). I love mine topped with a Jarrah sweater when it’s cool.

Cute & easy dress

I was very pleased with my finished Olive dress. I found it easy to sew. The neck insert was challenging, but not so much that it made me want to give up. The instructions were easy to understand and well-written. I definitely plan on using this pattern again. I made the size 14 with no adjustments other than shortening the skirt (I’m 5’ 2”). When I make again, I will probably shorten the bodice slightly. I used printed cotton poplin for my make.

Great top. Great pattern

I made the Olive top with long sleeves in a washed linen. It’s beautiful. As others have said, the insert can be a little fiddly but I used the online tutorial that walked me through the entire process. I am a beginner sewer and it came out perfect. I wear a smaller size on top than bottom and the pattern was easy to adjust. The top is very pretty and feminine. I already have plans to make more. .
