I hunted your review down in reference to using a woven for this pattern. Glad to know it works, and I'm revv'n up the layout board even now.

This looks fantastic! I love the long-sleeved shirt under it - great look. Inspiring!

Very interesting way to make up this pattern. It looks good in a woven.

Thank you for experimenting on this dress to turn it into a tunic! I was thinking about the same idea, and you've done the legwork for me :D

Nice job with the tunic conversion - I think it looks much nicer than the dress version shown on the pattern envelope!

Terrific changes to the pattern-I love this tunic and wish I could carry it but sadly, no. It looks great on you.

Wow, what a great style change your fabric makes! This looks great as a blouse with the heavier weight fabric.

I love the structure and body the wool gives this top. It looks great on you - I agree with franticfashion that this really suits your body type! If you recut the cowl on the bias, make sure you post another picture so we can compare the drape :)

Really lovely.

Thank you for your comments. I love your wise suggestion Irene. I can how a bias cut would work so much better. I will have to try it.

I love your woven tunic version! This really is a great pattern. I've recently made it and it's really easy and really flattering. As I was reading your review, I thought that your cowl would drape as you want if you cut it on the bias—I see that Irene has all ready suggested it!

Oh wow, I love it. Yours look 100 times better than the original.

I love your version of this pattern and I think it looks wonderful on you. IMO you are slim enough to pull it off, on anyone with curves it would look like a tent in the heavier, woven wool fabric.

Great look. I didn't even recognize it as the dress from the pattern.

The top looks very attractive in a woven - I like Irene's advice to try it on the bias next time.
Irene said... (5/18/11 8:33 PM) Reply
A worthy experiment! It looks like your cowl is cut on the straight grain. To have any semblance of the knit version of the original design, a woven fabric needs to be cut on the bias . . . and would require more fabric.

I think it looks great as a top.
