  1. Lea

    Such a cute top, and a quick and easy sew too !

  2. Patty (verified owner)

    I love this pattern and all of the options in comes with. Very pleased!

  3. Barbara (verified owner)

    This was so easy, and easy to adjust for my youngest granddaughter’s tiny shoulders. Making another today with a cowl and matching leggings.

  4. Victoria (verified owner)

    Love this pattern!

    Sooo easy to make (especially as I’m making a 3T for my daughter having made a few XL women’s for myself!)

    Goes together so fast and I love that we can have matching clothes! ☺️

  5. Sharon (verified owner)

    Very pleased. High/low hemline with cowl is a favorite at our house.

  6. Jaslyn (verified owner)

    Love the high/low hemline. Not to mention the great instructions. Another satisfied pattern from Love Notions!

  7. Melissa (verified owner)

    An absolute favorite! So many options included and great size range will make this a go-to for many years. Love the trimless pages and that there’s also a matching momma top!

  8. Sarah (verified owner)

    Sews up nicely. I love all the options included. I had a little trouble with the neckline growing on me but that was a poor choice of fabric on my part–I recommend using something more stable or with really good recovery for the asymmetrical collar.

  9. Jaslyn (verified owner)

    Love this pattern! Instructions were great and easy to make too. I especially love the high/low hemline!

  10. Davita (verified owner)

    Such a quick sew and with so many options you can make a casual top to pair with leggings. I made the dress with cowl and it was so quick and easy! Love this pattern. 4 stars because I wish it came in smaller sizes too!

  11. Pat English (verified owner)

    I have now made the L’il LDT 5 times. I don’t think there’s a quicker or easier pattern for girls out there that gives such excellent results. Definitely a must-have for any pattern collection!

  12. ammonlane (verified owner)

    I’ve made three of these this month and they are all different! With all the options on it I’ll never get sick of it. The cowl is so great in sweater knit or chunky French terry for Fall and gives a sweater feel. My daughters gonna be living in this for years!

  13. Jennifer (verified owner)

    I LOVE this pattern. So many options and so easy to just sew up. I have made 4 already for my daughter. ❤❤

  14. brenda (verified owner)

    I’ve used this pattern for 3 girls, aged 8, 11, and 12 so far, with plans for more! I’ve loved the fit- enough width at the bottom to flow nicely without them protesting it being too wide! A very lovely pattern!

  15. Trista (verified owner)

    I absolutely adore this pattern. I love all the options and such an easy sew.

  16. Evelyn (verified owner)

    Sew a few top and can’t wait to make the dress! Trendy and easy 🙂

  17. Rachel (verified owner)

    A great shape, and fabulously versatie as well. I really love the fit of this pattern on any shape 🙂

  18. Christina (verified owner)

    Love this easy and beautiful sew for my daughters

  19. Trista (verified owner)

    Such a cute and versatile pattern. It’s a quick and fun sew with detailed instructions.

  20. diane (verified owner)

    I love this pattern. I made a tunic for my granddaughter. Looks great with the free liggins. She is only 2, so she will be styling with this pattern for years!!

  21. Ruthie (verified owner)

    Love this pattern. Made a dress and tunic for my 11 yo. So many different options! The loose fit is superb. The instructions are so thorough. I would highly recommend this pattern.

  22. andreawirtanen (verified owner)

    I’ve used and used this pattern again and again. Rhe design is so versatile and comfortable. My girls love the dress option.

  23. Aiyana

    This pattern was too small on my daughter’s shoulders. The classic tee pattern fit perfectly so I’m not sure why this one wasn’t working. I really wanted to make a few different versions.

  24. sproul818 (verified owner)

    This is one of my favorite patterns to make my daughter. It is quick and easy and the options make it a great 4 season pattern.

  25. Debi Mager (verified owner)

    This pattern helps me earn grandma points with my granddaughter. She loves the tunic with the hood. She’ll come over and look through my stash, hand me some fabric and ask me to make her another tunic. She even knows the name and the views she loves. It cracks me up to hear my granddaughter order her LDT, 3/4 sleeves and hood. I love that my girl knows what she likes!

  26. Marla (verified owner)

    This is one of my most used patterns! I already loved the LDT for myself, and knew this one would be perfect for my daughter. I have used it to make dresses, tunics and nightgowns for her.

  27. 10identical (verified owner)

    So cute, fast, and easy! Sizing is accurate and I love the shape of it (flares out just a little). I like making these a size big so they fit longer, and they still look cute when a little larger than called for. I’ve made many and will be making many more

  28. tracyandcarol (verified owner)

    So easy and fun to make. Used this pattern for the granddaughters at my daughters wedding. Flattering on every body type. They were delighted and so was I.

  29. jlyofmo (verified owner)

    I love this shirt!!! It’s a perfect length and also has so many versions to style it up or down!!

  30. monicakoepfer (verified owner)

    This was a quick sew! Cut the pattern one night and sewed the next day! My daughter loves the high-low dress!

  31. Mary Powell (verified owner)

    This is a fun and easy sew and a great starting point for all kinds of costumes and hacks.

  32. abbott.heather (verified owner)

    Super fast and easy! Versatility makes it good. Love the option for a hood! My little loved it!

  33. Terrie (verified owner)

    Our granddaughter’s favorite pattern. Such a quick and easy sew I don’t mind making her lots of them. Her favorite is the tunic length, but she also likes me to make the dress length on occasion.

  34. Lori Jessen (verified owner)

    This is my granddaughter’s favorite pattern! And since it’s such a quick sew, Grandma can make her lots of them!
