    I thought I was purchasing a printable pattern not a draft yourself patter. I could have done this myself.

    This pattern produces a very wide, huge armholed pattern. Definitely take care to pin this on yourself and adjust as you go. I found it was fixable just by sewing up into the armhole a bit. I’m pretty pleased with it actually.

    I have to agree with Retailer. I drafted and cut this very carefully, to the exact specs of the download, and the arm holes are ridiculously huge. Can’t wear it without something underneath, which ruins the whole look. And no way to fix it without losing the too much of the width of the top, which would ruin the drape effect. SO disappointed! And my fabric was so lovely. :( Advice: When drafting, increase the 44 cm measurement on the side of the panel by quite a bit – I’m thinking to 55 cm or so, and leave the other dimensions the same. If the arm holes end up too small, it’s a simple fix to enlarge them, but impossible to shrink them.

      It’s a draft yourself pattern. You have to use the instructions to make your own.

    Am I the only one unable to print this? I can print the instructions and I do have an account.

    I think there is a fault with the drafting of this pattern. The arm-holes are unbelievably over-sized. Nothing like as shown on model. On me they reach my waist!!
