Pattern Review : Esme Top

Esme Top using Wildwood fabric | HoneyBeGood

I've been wanting to make the Esme Top for a while, and when Wildwood arrived in the shop last month some of the prints seemed very fitting. This was my first experience with Sew Liberated patterns. I consider myself a beginner when it comes to apparel making (quilter here!), and I found the video walk-throughs extremely helpful.

The patterns also include detailed written instructions so that an experienced sewist can move on without watching the video.
