The Bowery Top Tester Roundup

Hannah Rose| @hannah_rose.smith

“I am very happy with the fit of both of my Bowery Tops. I love how the shape works in both the drapey Rayon and the more structured Cotton.”

Sandra | @stummel 

“I think the pattern is lovely and reminds me of my beloved Forsythe dresses.
I made a size E, graded to an F in the waist and lengthened by 3” and I’m wearing the top now!”

Chloe| @no.idle.hands 

” I love my Bowery Top! I made a size A with the original length and love the fit.  The fit and proportions are just right for me, and I can move my arms freely which can’t be said for a lot of other dolman sleeve patterns out there ;-)….. A twist for my make is that I repurposed it from a men’s shirt, re-using the original placket, pocket and part of the hem. I have to
say that the Bowery is perfect for this refashioning if one can find
the right size men’s shirt! Now I’m eyeing my husband’s closet
sneakily haha…”

“I love the top, it feels great to wear! I made size G lengthened 3″ and my body measurements were a bit larger than recommended for the pattern, but it fit great and I have zero complaints about fit or style”
