|Pattern Description: Misses' top, tunic & dress by The Cut Line, Butterick's Line designed for Dress to Top Options. It is very loose fitting with neckband, gathers, button closure, applied casing with drawstring and stitched hems, long sleeves are warn rolled up and secured with buttons (wrong side of fabric will show) and side pockets.|
Pattern Sizing:Multi-sided for custom fit, sizes range from XS thur XXL, I made a size L but it's a little big.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, exactly as pictured.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy, super straightforward.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I had originally wanted a tunic but didn't have enough fabric, so my top is cut somewhere between view A & B.
Fabric Used: I have had this fabric from JoAnns Fabrics for the past couple of years, left over from a previous project I reviewed on Pattern Review. How I managed to have 2 yards of leftover fabric is a mystery, but a happy one.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Due to the fabrics' flowey nature, I stitched the rolled sleeves down to keep them from looking sloppy, at the sleeve seam and under the button tabs.
I also sewed the casing for the drawstring a little lower as I am somewhat tall and wanted to alter the proportions.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes, it was an easy pattern.
Would you sew it again? This pattern was appealing to me for a different fabric that I had planned for it. Unfortunately, I did not have enough fabric to do the sleeves, and after driving to 4 different stores, sadly I couldn't find any more. It is a white georgette with metallic gold mini dots. So, If I find the fabric I will be making this pattern again.
Conclusion: This project almost didn't get finished! When I tried it on, I had my doubts about the loose nature and it's overall hugeness! But, for the sake of finishing this review, I persevered and after styling with pants and jewelry, the print and overall look doesn't scare me like it did. This leads me to believe that perhaps all those unfinished projects deserve a second look perhaps?
