|Pattern Description: "Misses Tunic or Top with Neckline and Sleeve Variations"|
Pattern Sizing: 8-18; I made a size 10 but would probably do an 8 next time. This pattern has 7" of ease, which is a bit much even for a swingy top!
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, except for the modifications I made. I actually was inspired by the envelope illustration and chose to make View C in a very similar floral pattern.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like that there are no darts, and fitting is pretty straightforward. As I mentioned above, though, it does run large.
Fabric Used: 1 yard of 54" wide rayon challis, which was barely enough for View C.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I cut the top to be more tunic length in the back and top-length in the front to get the trendy high-low hem thing going on. Since I wasn't doing the ruffle sleeves, I also put the underarm gusset piece and the main pieces together so as to avoid having to sew extra seams.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? It's a great basic top that works well for layering. I would like to sew if again, although if I make another sleeveless one I'll be taking some width out of both the front and back yokes since they're very wide as it is. I would recommend it to others, but be careful in choosing your size.
Conclusion: Love this top!
