Apparently, Love Sewing Magazine is not available in the USA. I just want to say that while I have heard many people from other places express envy that we in the US can purchase patterns for very low prices, what we don't have are the sewing magazines that the rest of the world has access to. Some that include free patterns!

That said, I found this free downloadable pattern on Love Sewing Magazine's website. FREE downloadable patterns abound on their website. I never want to hear anybody expressing envy about the US getting low cost patterns. Other places can get them for free. OK, back to subject.  0_0

I can't get the instructions for the Think Pink Top in Love Sewing Magazine #78. I can't purchase a copy of the magazine. I can't borrow a copy from the library. Does anyone have the instructions for this top and could tell me if there is anything particularly weird or odd about the construction of it? I know the basic order of construction of a top, just curious if there is anything I should know. For example, recommended fabric or stretch of fabric? Thank you.  :)

Most of our sewing magazines are full of adverts and not much content... I’ve looked at them in the newsagents but wouldn’t buy them. The only one I buy is Ottobre which comes out twice a year. I would far rather have your US pattern prices.
Sorry can’t help with the instructions.

@Margarita I don't usually buy these magazines unless I want one of the patterns as @Efemera says they are mostly filled with ads or things I don't need but I have a Readly subscription and sometimes read the current issue. It does allow me to look at previous issues so you are in luck! I photographed the page on my tablet with my phone so hope the instructions are clear enough.

There are a couple of other bits that I will read later on so thanks for the alert. I think this must be from a year ago.  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]      [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

Hope this works for you!

If anyone has a better method can you let me know!

I agree with @Efemera about our mag's.  They are pretty dire.  The patterns are often full of mistakes and poor instructions.  The content itself always seems aimed at beginners, there is nothing for advanced sewists.  I’ve seen loads of them over the years during my work as we used to get them delivered to the shop I worked at. 
You do have Threads magazine over there.  So much better although even that is getting a little jaded compared to what it was.

I look to see what are the bundled "free" patterns, but have yet to be tempted.

I understand the dissatisfaction with the sewing magazines available to you, but at least you have them.
