Thanks Deby for sharing your experiences. I tried downloading the gathered front top but couldn't open it even after downloading Adobe reader. Was told the reader couldn't open the format. Please help. Thanks a lot?

The pattern and instructions are held in two different PDF files, inside a ZIP folder so you need to unzip the file first to get to the PDF files inside. This is explained how to do this in the article here - http://so-sew-easy.com/download-print-pdf-sewing-patterns/
if you are still stuck, drop me an email.

Deby, Thank you for this pattern! I made it in 2 hours and it fits fantastic! I love the princess seam and gather details. So much more feminine than a plain tee!

How do I transfer the A4 page pattern to make it fit a size 16 person?

There should be no need to resize the pattern to fit A4 paper, it fits on both letter and A4 correctly. Once its all printed and assembled, you use the size chart to pick your size according to the closest measurements and cut out the right line - just like a regular pattern.

What a lovely top. Looking through my stash now for the right material. If not I'm shopping. Thanks very much for spending the time and effort.

Thanks so much. I downloaded the pattern and have the fabric in my stash. The scale is perfect. I look forward to making it. The scale was my main concern, but I couldn't print it out separately. I'll probably make a band for the neckline and armhole out of my fabric or get some foldover elastic. The pattern, instructions and video are very well done. I am grateful for your effort in putting all of this material on Craftsy gratis. Thanks, Judith

Is there a way to add sleeves to this.

I don't have a sleeve pattern drafted for it Kristina, but there is no reason it can't have sleeves. You could either draft your own, or copy from an existing t-shirt with a similar arm hole.

It would make a great sewing lesson for new students. I hope you will post some completed projects for inspiration.

Love this top, but am unsure how to print pattern or do I construct it to scale. Initial download came across at 18%.

Hi Linda. If you open the Instructions PDF, inside there are full details including a screen print of how to print out the pattern. You should print at 100%, no scaling or autofit. If you have any questions, my email address is in the instructions. Deby
