Easy and Adorabe

I loved this top. I have a hard time finding tank tops that fit the dress code at their school, and this one has thick enough straps that it's good to wear to school. The style is so adorable, even European chic! The construction is easy and it's great to have the key hole and tie in the back - no buttons and zips for their hair to get stuck in. They were quick and easy to construct, didn't require a ton of fabric, and turned out so great! I haven't tried the shorts yet - bought the pattern for the top alone.

Skip the Bow and a Six-year-old can make the shorts!

I bought this set solely for the shorts, thinking they were a simple pattern my daughter could use to contribute to her own back-to-school outfit. I was not disappointed. The instructions for sewing the non-bow version of the shorts were kind of disjointed, but the end product turned out great. My daughter loved that there were so many straight lines and such easy construction, and I loved that even with a six-year old at the helm, we could still finish them in a night.

I loved this patter. It was drafted really well and the simple top really allows the cute shorts to be the showstopper. I will be making a lot of these shorts for my daughter and nieces.

Sweet Summer Staple

The Allie top was such a fun sew. My first time doing pintucks, and bias tape. So much easier than I ever imagined. I’ll definitely be making more of these.

Allie top

I made the Allie top in size 2T, but when I took it to my granddaughter I couldn’t get it over her head. I had to bring it home (106 Miles) and make the cutout larger. It turned out cute, but I wasn’t happy about the hassle.

I do love your patterns, the instructions are easy to follow with pictures and notations. I have just about finished sewing the Allie Tops and will start on the shorts later today - just in time before my granddaughters arrive for Christmas.

Cutest shorts ever

I love the Allie shorts and top. Both were easy to put together and I liked the multiple options for the shorts (lined/unlined, bow front/no bow). Once again another perfectly easy to follow pattern from VFT.

Wow! My daughter and I both love the look of these tips and shorts. We made her several tops out of cotton to complete outfits she already had and shorts out of cotton canvas prints that are just adorable. The high waist is cute, cute. They wash well. Adorable together or as separates. Ran true to size.

I made both the top and shorts for my granddaughter - she loved them and so did her mama. She is saving them for our trip to Disney in a few weeks. Her mama wants an Allie top too!
