I made a size 104 and it's true to size. Sewing the woven placket into the knit is a little finicky but otherwise this is a pretty straightforward top to sew. I left off the pockets per my daughter's instructions. The opening is low (which is pretty clear according to the pics in the magazine) so it really needs a tee under it if you sew it according to the pattern. I think you could get away with stitching it closed more and still be able to get the top on and off.

eta: I cut the bias strips longer than the pattern called for. I just wanted to make sure that they'd be long enough. I'll probably go back and trim them shorter so they're not hanging so far down.

Can't comment on the fit, but it sews up easily and the pieces fit together nicely. Love it for mixing knit and woven.

Love this one! :) I took out the seam allowances (skinny-mini child), so I probably shouldn't comment too much on the fit. I made the 128 for my 7 year old and it will be long enough to wear with capris (even without the seam allowances). I got this Laura Gunn Magnolia fabric in Mustard by accident but it matched my Scandi Chirp perfectly for this project, and gives the solid some texture, love it!

I also made the largest size, 128. Cutting it out it seemed so wide! I did take out about 2 inches in width just because I thought it was going to be too tent like. But otherwise, I think it fits just fine.

I made 2..




This placket looks pretty wonky!
