Really like the quality of this fabric – I’ve not made it up yet but have no doubts it will be great.
Florence Boxy Tee Fabric
It was great to be able to buy the fabric and necessary extras in one place. I do think a “kit” is fab. I used this as a wearable toile as it was relatively inexpensive and good practice to make up using fabric of this type. I must admit, I wouldn’t of purchased it off the shelf due to it being a bit tricky but I’m pleased I’ve mastered it – the sew along gave lots of encouragement to trust the pattern and cutting and was good to hear Donna with her lovely accent saying it was the fabric at fault when it didn’t look like it would fit (but it did exactly as she said it would!)
Florence Blouse Fabric
Lovely pattern, great instructions and a fab you tube sew along – it was great to follow and learn some new tips especially adding bias binding this way and I’ve never been able to master shirring elastic up until now – thanks Donna

So where do I start……
Let’s start with the finished product, absolutely beautiful! I don’t even wear blouses but I am already planning on another.
This pattern was my first time for a lot of things:
– sewing lightweight woven fabric
– making a woven top
– raglan sleeves
– bias neckline
And I have to say the video is an invaluable resource. I also managed to cock up the fit and Donna took the time and effort to walk me through it. 100% 5 stars for the pattern, instructions, video tutorial and Donna’s patience!

Such a great sew! The dress looks great and is super flattering, the pockets are a fab addition too. The instructions along with the tutorial video really made sewing the dress a breeze even on the tricky parts. I will definitely be using the hemming method on future projects – what a game changer! Donna offered great customer service too when I was unable to download my pattern. Great company all round and I would highly recommend!

What a fabulous pattern. Only three pieces and a lovely raglan sleeve with shirred cuffs. Great hour long YouTube video that takes you step by step through the pattern. Will definitely be making more!

Fabulous wardrobe staple. Easy to follow instructions with a brilliant step by step tutorial on YouTube. As a fairly new sewist, I was able to build on skills already learnt and learn new things, giving me the confidence to move forward. Will definitely try another pattern. Thank you.

I am in love with this skirt! I love how it fits lovely around the waist and hips and then flares out so nicely with the gathers. The instructions are really clear so it’s a great pattern for all levels (I’m a beginner) and it’s a make that will not take much of your time so even better! I can’t wait to make another one

I’m not a massive skirt wearer as they tend to twizzle around on me and drive me crackers. However I gave the Florence skirt a go as I thought if it was made for my measurements then the twizzle may not happen. I can confirm no twizzle occurs!
A lovely pattern to put together. Instructions are clear and well written. It’s the perfect skirt to dress up or down and is ideal for many occasions. Excellent work Size Me!
