The last BundleUP Pattern review.
It's been so fun to show off all of these great patterns and I'm kind of sad that it has to end...
BUT...that means ONE MORE SLEEP until the Bundle sale is LIVE!!!! So while you're waiting, read up on this sweet, fluttery top from Terra's Treasures. Crystal will walk you through it and then Erica will join in on the fun! Also make sure you check out the "Win It Before You Can Buy It."
This pattern will be available in the Women's Bundle UP May 1-8 at a deep discount, and after May 22 at full price in the Terra’s Treasures SHOP.
Are you ready to Bundle UP? This Women’s pattern bundle here at Pattern Revolution May 1-8 is full of really awesome patterns you will want to get your hands on and sew up for yourself! I am Crystal, from Stitched by Crystal, and I get to tell you all about one of the patterns you can grab in the Bundle UP promo! Today I will tell you all about the Pier 7 Top by Terra’s Treasures, which I modeled with my Real Deal Jeans by Winter Wear Designs (review HERE and also in the bundle!)
The Pier 7 Top by Terra’s Treasures features a pleated bodice, elastic below the bust, and flutter sleeves. It can be made from any lightweight woven fabric, so I chose a floral georgette from JoAnn Fabrics for mine. The shirt has a really flattering fit, it hides my mommy tummy, while still being fitted at my waist.
This pattern has a huge range of sizes, from size 00 (31” chest) to size 26 (51.5” chest) and the pattern includes really detailed instructions for measuring yourself to determine which size to make as well as great instructions on altering the pattern for a full bust or a small bust so you can get a really great custom fit! For the elastic below the bust, you can choose to do with elastic shirring or create a casing for 1” elastic, I chose the elastic since my machine doesn’t always play nice with shirring. The neckline on this shirt is finished with a facing. I am not usually a fan of facings because they always shift around on me, but this pattern has a sneaky way of tacking down the facing between those pleats on the front so this facing so you don’t have any shifting issues!
I would say this pattern is best for intermediate sewists because of the pleats and the possibility of altering for a small or large bust. You also need to do a rolled hem on the top of the skirt and it is an option to finish the sleeves as well.
The Pier 7 top makes a great top for spring and summer! Make sure you grab this one in your bundle!
