Breeze shirt

Love this pattern.steps were easy to follow. The French seams would make it very professional but I have to admit that I overlocked the seams. Perfect for the hot weather in Thailand .

A great pattern!

Sewed up nicely, for a birthday present for my grandson. A nice look for boys or girls.

Gorgeous, fool-proof pattern!

Great pattern for adventurous beginner (or anyone!)

Like all twig and tale patterns this was super easy to follow and the video tutorials really map it out for you. The French seams make the seems on this shirt so fancy and professional looking. I was super impressed with myself. I already made two shirts and plan to make several more!

Breeze shirt (all sizes) Perfect pattern

Such clear instructions both in the PDF and on the website, a support group too I believe! I didn't need those, the pattern is so comprehensive and easy to understand. If you're looking at reviews to help decide, buy it! You won't regret it.

Quick sew before holidays

3 shirts-3 days!
A few weeks before my 2 grandkids ( 14 month & 3 years) were off to Mexico , my daughter in-law was searching for long sleeve tops to keep the kids protected from the sun.
I happened to see this pattern on my Instagram feed so ordered the PDF .
I made 1 top out of a light weight blue/white pin striped cotton- linen. 2 tops from cotton gauze. They were so quick to make and quite satisfying. The grandkids looked brilliant in them!
