Pattern Description: Close fitting. Double needle stitching. A,B: Armhole seams on outside; self binding; ribbon on back; unfinished edges will show. C: neck binding.

Pattern Sizing: Misses XS - XXL. I made a medium and am generally a 12 in Vogue.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes, except I didn't expose the seam allowances as are shown in the pattern drawing and photo. Mostly because I was too lazy to take the extra effort and just wanted to serge this together.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, this is a very easy tunic

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? loose fitting to wear with skinny jeans.

Fabric Used: rayon jersey

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: nothing other then not having the exposed seam allowances.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I have made this top a few times before and have actually worn out those versions. It's a bit rare for me to wear out something since, as most of us who sew a lot have plenty of clothes and not enough closet.

Conclusion: great tunic pattern. It's a great length and I love the raglan sleeves for narrow shoulders.
