Newly Updated Bronte Top Pattern with additional sizes!

Friday, March 27, 2015
Hi everyone,

I just wanted to let you all know that I've just updated the ever popular Bronte Top pattern just in time for the weekend!




 It now comes with two additional sizes at the upper end (a size NZ 22 & 24) and I've added finished measurements to the pattern.


Check out picture 5 for updated fabric and sizing requirements.

Happy sewing!

  1. Can I get the extra 2 sizes added, since I already bought the original pattern?

  2. Hello!!

    I have been in discussions with Etsy on how this will work with people who have already bought the older file. Unfortunately at this stage, the new file doesn't filter down to people automatically so I'm going to need to do it manually - which is going to take some time.

    If you could please forward me either your paypal receipt or Etsy Direct checkout receipt, and once a week I will collate those emails and send out the new pattern. jenniferlauren.is@gmail.com

    This is the only way I can foresee doing it for the mean time since I don't have the time to go through all individual purchases separately and I need to some how keep a track of people requesting the new pattern to make sure they did actually buy it (again, trolling through my sold orders isn't really an option for me since there are so many).

    I'm very sorry for the inconvenience and you'll get your new pattern very soon once you email me your receipt.

  3. I really love this top and wish so much that I sewed clothes more often but I get a little scared of screwing up. . .because I've done so in the past (though only I noticed). Granted I am a little more experienced as a sewer that I was last time I made clothes. How long does it take you to make these? I can spend hours and hours quilting with glee but dread making clothes. weird.

    1. Hey Victoria - apologies for the late response :( I think fitting a body can be a scary thing because every one is totally different! At least with a quilt, you have a standard size you are fitting it too, whether that's a single bed or a queen - but a body is a 3 dimensional thing with curves and it needs to be able to move freely (there is nothing worse than feeling restricted in your clothing!).

      However, if you are new to sewing clothes, knits are a great place to start - which is what Bronte is made from. They are very forgiving, even if you have some fitting issues, and they are really quick to make up. If it was your first time, you may want to spend a bit more time doing things slowly and testing your machine settings etc, but these days I can whip up a Bronte in a few hours if I'm taking my time (and one of the things I'm trying to do is take my time and enjoy the sewing process, rather than rush through).

      I did do a Bronte top sew along with colour photos if you wanted to read the process first? It's not as complicated as it looks, promise :)

Thank you so much for stopping by to leave me a comment, like most people, I really do appreciate them all!

Due to the large amount of spam I seem to be receiving for some strange reason, comments may take longer to be published than usual. Apologies!
