Sewing Pattern Review- Finn by BLAVERRY

Posted by Heather at Wednesday, January 13, 2016

Recently, I had the opportunity to sew up the Finn top by BLAVERRY. This new-to-me PDF sewing pattern designer was a pleasure to work with. Christie, the brains and talent behind the brand, definitely has a clear-cut vision for her BLAVERRY. Sleek, modern and fun are all adjectives that I would use to describe the BLAVERRY brand.

The Finn top by BLAVERRY PDF sewing pattern includes the following:
-The Finn top by BLAVERRY is sized for 2-16.
-The Finn top by BLAVERRY has three sleeve lengths- cap, mid and long.
-Some reviewers of the Finn top by BLAVERRY lengthened the skirt ruffle in order to make the top a dress.
-The Finn top by BLAVERRY PDF sewing pattern includes nested, trimless, layered pattern pieces (love that!).
-The Finn top by BLAVERRY PDF sewing pattern tutorial includes shaded, step-by-step instructions.
-The Finn top by BLAVERRY PDF sewing pattern includes a sizing chart, a fabric chart, and a hand fabric stretch guide. Measurements in the sizing and fabric chart are given in both imperial and metric.

I sewed up a size six Finn top by BLAVERRY. Technically, Lil' Miss is a size five chest (and six height). However, due to the material that I was using for the body of the top, I knew that I'd need to have her layer the Finn top by BLAVERRY over another top. I wanted to make sure things weren't too constricting. The silver metallic material was purchased locally at Hancock Fabric and the black cotton lycra neckband material was purchased online from Purpleseamstress Fabrics.

The Finn top by BLAVERRY was a breeze to sew up. Actually, I got through sewing the Finn top by BLAVERRY so quickly that I almost thought I must have forgotten a step because I reached the end so soon. Trust me, that is a good problem to have! :-) Directions were clear and straight to the point- not second-guessing or wondering how to proceed.

The peplum "skirt" to the Finn top by BLAVERRY is a great alternative to the traditional dress. It's also a great compromise between my dress-every-day-wearing diva daughter and her need to be comfortable and able to move appropriately in kindy. #momwin

I also love that the skirt part of the Finn top by BLAVERRY is shaped and slightly longer in the back. It's these little details that make a pattern extra special.While this may have been my BLAVERRY pattern, I can guarantee I won't be my last! :-)
