Misses tunics Pattern Sizing:
4-22 Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Other than my using a print, yes. Click Here Were the instructions easy to follow?
Didn't use them What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I thought I liked the sharktail hem. In the end I think there is just too much fabric in the hip area for someone as "hippy" as I am. I don't hate it but I'm just kind of "meh" about it. Fabric Used:
Rayon jersey Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made a 1" FBA adding a horizontal dart at the bust. The rayon jersey "grew" faster than a teenage boy. Although I used Steam-A-Seam around the neck...it was a HOT MESS. I wound up cutting the original neckline off. I cut a 2 1/4" piece of fabric on the crosswise grain. I measured the pattern piece and cut the length 2" shorter. I rebased the neck using the "finger behind the needle" method to ease the neckline as much as I could. Having marked the shoulder seams on the neckband, while sewing, I slightly stretched the neckband to fit the tunic neck opening. To finish it off I used a double needle to stitch on each side of the neckband seam. Click Here
Beware that the underside of the hem shows in places so you'll want to finish it nicely. Click Here Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'm sure I won't sew it again. If I were younger I could probably get away with wearing it as a mini dress. Not how long I want the top to be. On the other hand it's a little too "artsy-fartsy" for me. If you're the type that likes wearable art or are drawn to the Marcy Tilton patterns, you'll probably love this.
