|Pattern Description: |
Loose-fitting, pullover tunic, has collar or hood, shaped hemline, narrow hem and snap closing. Top-stitiching. Wrong side shows on hemline and hood.
I bought the XS, S, M and cut a medium which seemed quite large.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
beware that if you 5' 4" or under then you will need to shorten the length of this top. If you look at the girl modelling this for Vogue the back come just below her bottom, whereas mine almost falls to the back of my knees, so will be shortening this by around 3" back and front in the morning.
some cream fine knit from my stash.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did reduce the sleeve length by around 3" and even after putting a 5/8" hem on them, they are still quite long.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Hmm I am not sure. Its not my typical style, I'll have to see how I feel about this in the morning after I shorten it.
A nice easy trendy tunic that makes up really quickly, but unless you are 5' 8"+ be prepared to shorten it.
