Pattern Description: MISSES TUNIC: Close-fitting and flared, pullover tunic has front variations, shaped hemline and narrow hem. Wrong side shows on back hemline. C and D: collar.

Pattern Sizing: XS-XXL

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? pretty much!

Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This is my second tunic from this pattern. It has a lovely back sweep
and fits me perfectly!

Fabric Used: A beautiful sweater knit from Marcy Tilton

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made View C, lengthened the sleeves and added a contrast neck binding.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes...the back of this tunic sets it apart from many others.

Conclusion: A really lovely tunic that is quickly becoming a TNT for me. For more details, see my blog

one of my favorite patterns. I love the swingy back, and have noted that some people sew this pattern and alter the back to take that out. Too bad. very cute on you, super flattering, nice fabric!

That tunic looks fabulous! I really love the fabric, pity that you bought it years ago and it will no longer be available. Nice sweater knits like that are really hard to find. Luckily the pattern is still around. :-)
