Fit is excellent and the instructions are wonderful and clear. Love all the options!!!
I learned how to do a FBA from this pattern, and the fit is amazing. Love the options, and the bateau neckline which is not as prevalent an option in pdf patterns. Highly recommended!
Love the options, I did with front and back yoke~ Also, extended this to a dress, so it’s like color blocking. I have yoke as a woven, bodice as jersey cotton knit and bottom (extended dress part) as sweater rib knit. So much fun!!

I love this pattern!! Where I live knit is very costly and this pattern is an efficient use of fabric whilst being figure freindly and easily dressed up or down…. this is another pattern that sets love notions above the rest 🙂

This was my first Love Notions pattern and I made my first one up as a sleeveless summer top. It was quick and easy and has become the first of many Love Notions patterns. LN patterns are well constructed with excellent instructions and usually contain lots of options. Definitely my favourite pattern company

I’ve made 3 of these so far. I love having so many options to create unique tops. The fit is great and fits my curves comfortably. It surprises me how quickly this can be sewn together.

Just sewed up my first Tabitha, used some mesh fabric I had sitting around forever. I see many of these in my future as office casual staples.

There are a lot of summer knit tops one can choose from but the neckline on this one was the main draw for me. I love the bateau neck and the extra curve at the front neck keeps it from being too close to my throat.

I have made this with trim along the bottom and it is a perfect top for a night out.

This pattern doesn’t get the attention it deserves! It is a perfect spring, summer and fall pattern with so many variations. My favorite is to do a print with the yoke and hem band and a coordinating solid on the body and sleeves. So pretty!
