I wasn't sure and missed like three sales before I finally decided to buy it.
The concept is what won be over. The access is just so easy, top down, cami up.
I'm so glad I finally bought this pattern. It turned out to be so versatile and now it's my absolute go-to for comfort!
I can dress it up for work with a pencil skirt (and excellent stripe matching I might add!) This is a jersey fabric from Hobby Lobby with solid cotton lycra for the bands and cami (needs good recovery to be stretched back and forth) from Elevated Fashion Fabrics
or when Katy needed models for her always-perfect and funny SVG files over at Thread and Grain but it fell during the same weekend I was testing another pattern, I was able to make three in an afternoon! All using solid cotton lycras from EFF (they go on sale for $5.85/yard!) and Siser Easyweed vinyl cut on my older Cricut Explore (I haven't upgraded to the Maker yet). The Siser vinyl really holds up. Especially if you apply with a heat press.
All of mine are the 3/4 sleeve, banded with the nursing cami option. If something is working for you, why mess with it? But the pattern has tons more combinations to find your perfect one.
Here are some of my Thread and Grain modeling attempts!
This SVG file came from Etsy and is perfect for wearing to the work-sponsored night at the local baseball game! Everyone needs to know just how much I know about the sport! I also banded the sleeves on this one for a pop of color!

I enjoy this pattern so much that I actually used it to hack a new dress! Here's how.
