I had a great group of testers for my recently released Lou Box Top pattern. And it's high time that I shared some of their lovely creations with you. Seriously they made some gorgeous garments! Read on to see more photos and some of responses about the pattern.

"I loved how easy and quick to sew this pattern is. The mix & match pattern pieces were really different and interesting to work with. A great piece for your everyday wardrobe that will accompany you from morning to night!" Follow her on Instagram @thewardrobeproject

Bottom right, Marjorie Sews: "This is a great pattern that is very easy and requires little fabric. It is perfect for drapey knits, crepes or silks. If you are tall, you may need to lengthen but I made it as is from the pattern with no alterations other than lengthening view Scoop neck A, straight hem." (I love this striped version! Check out other views on her instagram @marjoriesews)
Above, top left Debbie from Lily Sage & Co.: "This is the perfect stash pattern. It's a great pattern for beginners because of it's simplicity, and there is value in the fact that there are instructions included for woven as well as knit fabrics. I like the simple elegance of the design. It fits well and could easily be mofified into lots of different shapes." (I love how she lengthened the top to a tunic length. And the fabric! Read her post about the top here.)

Bottom left, Satvika: "This was a fun, easy project. Great for summer, for layering and for stash-busting. Got some compliments the first day I used it out for dinner. Really versatile piece."

Top right, Meagan Claire: " The Lou Box Top is a really flattering and comfortable blouse. It could definitely be whipped up quickly in fancy fabric for a fancy party, or in jersey for lounging. I love this versatile pattern!" (I love the contrasting fabrics she used. What a great way to stash bust and create a totally different look.)
Bottom right, The Ginger Poodle: "Great beginner pattern, especially if you have never sewn with knits before. Top is very flattering, loose and hides the lumps and bumps. So quick to put together can make a couple in an evening. Plan on making plenty when the sunny weather returns!"
I can't give enough thanks to everyone who volunteered to test the pattern. I'm amazed and inspired by all of their creations. If you make one of your own, use #louboxtop when sharing on social media. I love seeing your creations.
