    Fantastic capsule pattern

    I’ve already made a square neck top in cotton with standard sleeve, dress with flutter sleeve and two tiered skirt in rayon, and a matching top and tiered skirt in rayon. They have been perfect to beat the heat on a trip to Japan.

    So happy with my new top!

    I only just recently discovered MN patterns, and this is the first proper make. The instructions are just perfect, and the pattern comes together very smoothly. The neckline and facing are a bit fiddly, (I might skip the interfacing next time to make it less stiff) but the end result is very tidy looking. Because I have broad shoulders, but a small bust I don't trust the measurements and often size up to have enough room for movement. The size chart suggested a size 8 according to my bust size, so I made a size 10 to be sure, haha. But the pattern has indeed a roomy fit, and next time I'll make a size 8. Overall I'm stoked with the result and highly recommend these pattern to everyone - beginner and seasoned sewistas alike! :) I already have the Tania Culottes, the Opal Pants and the Darling Ranges Shirt in the pipeline (fabric drying on the line as I type this), and I'm looking forward to filling my wardrobe with me-made pieces that look and fit great. Thanks Meg, for creating beautiful & professional patterns!

    Love this pattern

    I love this pattern. It's so versatile, with so many options. I have made one top and looking forward to making more pieces. Instructions are clear and easy to follow, even grading the pattern to get a good fit was easy.

    LOVE the Protea Capsule Patterns!

    I love so many things about these patterns. I really like that all sizes for all pieces are only on 2 A0 sheets - I also LOVE the tutorials for every step of the process with every piece of clothing making it so user friendly. These blogs really gave me the confidence to try them all! I really love that you can switch up the sleeves with the tops and the neck is so easy to do and the final piece look gorgeous. I have already made 2 tops and a skirt. I will be using this pattern over and over again.
