A girls tunic with empire line yoke and pleated balloon shaped dress section.
This pattern was made in size 134 to allow some room for growth. This size is described as size 8 for kids and it's shoulders are a little wide for my size 7 daughter.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, aside from the modifications listed below
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The neck instructions were hard to follow and I ended up leaving the neck upstand out to give a cleaner line.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the shape. It is simple allowing for patterned fabric to be showcased. The cut is elegant and still allows active kids room to move.
I have used quilting cottons
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The neck stand was left out and a dome closure was used at the shoulder seam. I have added contrast piping along the base o the yoke and used contrast bias trim to form the hem.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes I would sew it again. The instructions were not too clear, but now that I have it sussed it is a great tunic for stylish kids.
While described as a dress, this is more like a tunic in length. With careful layering this can be a year round staple and looks great with leggings.
