I like wearing leggings some days. And when I wear leggings, I need to wear either a dress or a long, tunic length top. It's the most comfortable outfit. I don't have too many tunic length tops for the summer time though, and I jumped at the opportunity to test the new Priscilla Top by Mamma Can Do It!

I made two Priscilla Tops during testing. I really love both!
This pattern is drafted for knit fabrics. There is one length included (this long, tunic length). It has a handkerchief style hemline. It is really beautiful and unique! I haven't seen to many other top patterns around lately with this hemline!
In the tutorial, you will find instructions for choosing your size, based on the fit that you want. I just went by my measurements, and did not adjust size based on fabric type and stretch, however, and I love the fit of both of mine. You can see though, that one is slightly looser fitting than the other. It has to do with fabric type. I'll talk about that later!
This pattern is available to purchase in four size ranges, baby, girl, women, and women plus sizes! This pattern includes such a wonderful, inclusive range of sizes! The women's plus size fits up to 40! 😍 Or, you can grab a bundle with multiple sizes, if you need it! So anyone can wear this pattern, and I believe that it really does look amazing on everyone.
I feel like I say that a lot about patterns - custom size and custom fitted clothing makes a huge difference in how things look. Maybe that's why it always looks amazing!😉
For my first version, the mint one, I used a rayon spandex. It's very light weight, and honestly, due to the stretch, I likely could have sized down, but I really LOVE it! The tank version I made doesn't 100% match up to the pattern pieces - I initially planned to make a sleeved version, and adjusted the shoulders (I typically need a broad shoulder adjustment for sleeved things). Then I didn't add sleeves, and still used the same shoulders.
I would recommend using a fabric with some drape. If not, the pretty hemline might appear a bit boxy.
