|Pattern Description: princess seamed tunic and shirt with neckline variations |
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?yes. For what Burda lacks in good written instructions, the diagrams are really useful.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I made the asymmetrical neckline variation. I really liked the angle of it and the added slit/button combo. The bottom slits are also fun.
The fit in the armsyce is awesome. Even my fashion unaware husband noticed how nice the fit is here.
Fabric Used:Striped cotton shirting
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I added a CB seam and zipper (because I despise side zips) and eliminated the back ruching. I like the design detail of the ruching, but this is a pretty close fitting top, and I didn't have enough extra ease to make this feasible.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I think this pattern could be a sleeper staple. It really goes with anything and you could add a million different trims or embellishments to make it more/less dressy/ or more interesting. The princess lines are also really flattering. This is the second time I've made this top--the first time was intended as a muslin, but it turns out I had enough of this leftover poly masquerading as silk to make the whole thing.
Conclusion: This is definitely a TNT for me, and I would highly recommend it though it looks basic.
