|Why has this pattern had so few reviews????|
This is a great pattern. It is super fast, stylish, yet easy! Why, why why are there so few reviews? I don't get it! !
From the pattern envelope: Misses' tunics and leggings. Tunic View A has full-length sleeves and round neckline with self-fabric neckband. Tunic View B has short sleeves with cuffs and scoop neckline with self-fabric neckband. Tunics shown with purchased belts. Leggings, without side seams, have elastic waist. View A are scrunched at the ankle. View B are ankle length and View C are below-knee length.
An awesome thing about Kwik Sew patterns is that all sizes are included in one envelope! It has been a while since I cut and sewed a Kwik Sew pattern, and I had forgotten about the 1/4 " seam allowances! I am so glad I read the pattern pieces so I knew to sew with that narrow of a seam! I also realized how important it is to read the finished garment measurements prior to cutting, especially if it is a pattern you don't sew with much. I made a size medium and I like how it fits: not too snug, but I also don't feel like I am swimming in it either.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, I think it looks just like a blend of view B and A, exactly what I was going for!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The awesome thing with Kwik Sew is the simplicity and speediness of the instructions. I just glanced at them prior to cutting the tunic out.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love everything abut this tunic. The fit, the length, the neckband width, the sleeve length. No dislikes at all!
I used a poly, rayon, lycra knit from Marcy Tilton.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Here is what I changed. This is a short list! I used the neckline on view B, but the long-sleeves of view A. I made my usual 1/2" sway back adjustment and used the XL sleeve and tunic length.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Oh yes, I will sew this again and again. This is an excellent pattern! I can't wait to try the leggings!
Why are there only three other reviews for this pattern? I can't recommend it enough! Wow, what have I been missing by passing this one up? If you are a beginner, or want just a simple, well designed tunic, pick this up. It is as simple as that.
Thanks for reading!
