|Pattern Description: |
MISSES' TUNIC AND PANTS: Very loose-fitting, pullover tunic has side slits, narrow hem and purchased bias tape for neckline. B: button tab on sleeves, wrong side shows on hemlines. Semi-fitted, tapered pants have waistband and side zipper. C: side hemline slits.
Pattern Sizing: XS-XXL
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, it does. I made the top, View B, without the extended sleeve.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, this is a Very Easy Vogue pattern and it truly is very easy!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the high low hem tunic.
Fabric Used: A beautiful turquoise Ikat cotton voile from Sewbaby.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I used the Medium at the neck and shoulders, and then enlarged to what would be a Large at the sides if they had put Medium and Large in the same envelope. I wish that they would put those too together! However, I don't think that I needed to, and I now think it looks a little big on me.
I combined the upper front and lower front pieces so that my print would be uninterrupted by a seam. If I had a solid fabric, I would have used the separate pieces as I think the seam is a nice design detail.
I also cut a self bias strip for binding the neck.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would. It's very easy and a little unusual. The first time I wore it, which was to the grocery store, a random shopper came up to me and complimented me on my top and wanted to know where I bought it.
