    I made my muslin with a peach skin fabric. The instructions are great, and I love that the pattern pieces are trim-less. Binding the opening in the neckline was tricky because the fabric frayed and it was tricky not distorting the shape of the cut out. Next time I’ll omit the cut out in the neckline.

    At last I have found a pattern in woven fabric that fits me over the shoulder without tightening.
    I’m getting pain when clothes is tightening after removing a piece of my clavicle. It´s a great pattern, perfect in size.

    I love the versatility of this pattern and the ease of putting it together. It was my first Love Notions pattern and Im about to buy my second ?

    I made two Rhapsody in the sew-a-long. One in rayon and one in a cotton lawn. Both turned out great. The instructions in the pattern are clear and easy to follow. I liked the links to the videos in there as well! I’ve just bought fabric for three more!!

    I love this pattern! I’ve made it twice now…once in a rayon and once in a very lightweight cotton blend. Both are in high rotation in my summer wardrobe. This is a garment that captures the current “Boho” trend, without being too loose. I love the creative possibilities of this pattern and am looking forward to making it for fall. The pattern is carefully written. Sizing was spot on for me. Just carefully measured my body then print and cut the size(s) that I needed. I have wide, square shoulders to I needed to go up a size for the bodice, then grade back down for the body. Worked beautifully. Thank you Tami!

    My first and definitely not my last woven pattern! It was a perfect fit, always is!

    The perfect woven top. Very flattering and pretty on.

    I’ve made several Rhapsody’s now and love them all. Its a great pattern. easy to read and easy to follow. The sew-a-long on the blog is great too.

  9. Anne (verified owner)

    I love this pattern! It’s easy to sew and looks great on. I’ve made two so far!

    I have made four versions of this pattern three of the shirt style in different fabrics ( including a sheer chiffon) and one with the dress add on, and they have all turned out perfectly. Very easy to assemble and sew and a great pattern for learning and practicing the burrito method. Very clear instructions and great links to extra information. This pattern is open to creating so many different options you could have dozens of these and they would all look different. I own and sew up a lot of Love Notions patterns, and this would have to be my favourite by far.

    Easy to sew and great fit the first time. I will definitely make more. My husband commented that it fits great. He said this pattern is a winner.
