Easy to follow and great result

So easy to follow, I made size 6 for my daughter. I'm looking forward to making more sizes in the future! Such a handy farm top.

Easy Sew!

This was such as easy sew and I got so many compliments on the finished pullover. I wish you would list this as a unisex pattern and show more photos of little girls! My daughter looks totally cute in this (made with some girly fleece) and she loves her sweatshirt! Size seemed to be right on as well. Only issue is I used waaaay less fabric than required. Wish I had bought half the amount so I could have made 2 for the same price. I’ll be making more of these next winter for sure.

Love this pattern

I loved making this for my daughter. It came together so easy. The zipper is put on first when everything is flat so it is so easy to do. The instructions are very well written with lots of step by step pictures!
