Pattern Description: Easy to sew loose-fitting pullover tunic top has front neckline slit, optional collar and patch pockets, and your choice of sleeves.

Pattern Sizing: 6-8-10-12 (I made a 12 when I made this between kids about 3 years ago. I will make the 8 when I make it again.)

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? This is a Very Easy Vogue pattern and it lived up to its name.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked slanted patch pockets and the over-sized collar.

Fabric Used: A Ralph Lauren chambray sheet. I took advantage of white contrast twin stitches and positioned the wrist and pockets so they would show.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did not make any.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will sew this again. And recommend it to others. I am surprised that this is the first review of this pattern.
Conclusion: Quick and easy tunic.

Ha, just looked at the pattern...the pictures on the package make it look like a frumpy painting smock not the stylish tunic you created! That's probably why it's not reviewed more lol - I never would've looked twice at this and now I want it.

I was also going to say the pattern illustration looked frumpy and madbadger took the words out of my mouth. So fantastic in chambray!

You elevated this pattern- seriously- your version is adorable and the envelope doesn't even make me pause to look at it. Vogue owes you a check.

I've never even noticed this pattern before -- your version is so cute!! Love how you've incorporated the details on the sheet to add a little something to this top. Love it.
