    Love Love Love this top – made the weekday first which was very easy. Then made a weekend – so easy I made 3 tops in different fabrics that I had on hand. This pattern designer knows what she is doing !!!

  2. kim (verified owner)

    This is such a great pattern and I have so far made 7 Kat Tops all in different fabrics so far and have so many lovely comments about each of them.
    I did the bust adjustment and the front hangs beautifully with no pulling across my chest.
    Looking forward to future patterns from this designer.

    LOVE!!! The Kat top has become one of my classic wardrobe staples. The fit is exceptionally flattering with no adjustments, making this my new TNT.

    The Kat top is fabulous, this is a great top with easy to follow instructions accompanying the pattern with outstanding results, I made this version and then I made a version with no sleeves. I especially love the binding it really finishes the garment off professionally. Once my family found out I made this top I now have orders to make them one.

    Love this pattern. It fits so great with just minor changes for my measurements. I have made this about 8 times already. Right now trying to design a long sleeve for it so I can continue enjoying the Kathy top through the winter. Love love this top

    Great Pattern! Very easy to make and looks great on, have made the Kat weekend and making a start on the Kat weekday!

    This pattern is an amazing staple. I have two sewn up and fabric for 5 more. The directions are clear and you end up with exactly the product sold.

    This will be my go-to woven pattern. Nice proportions and not at all boxy. I’m short and busty so I did a dartless fba and shortened the armholes. There was a problem with the link in the pattern to the neckline tutorial and I had trouble with the neckline, but I winged it and it worked out. Looking forward to making another kat top and trying some other patterns!
