|Pattern Description: |
Misses' pullover tops or tunics in two lengths, have an empire waist, a low V-neck with front inset, a bias lower bodice, sleeve and tie variations.
I made view A, with sleeves and lower bodice shortened.
I sewed size 12, with side seams being 10.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, it is silmilar to the picture on the envelope, but it is shorter at hemline. The long sleeves have been changed for short two-piece sleeves. Neckline bias binding, front inset and sleeves were cut in a contrasting fabric.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, they were detailed and very helpful.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the front inset and the way it is attached to the V-neck upper bodice. I also love the thin bias tie ends sewn to the top at the side seams for an adjustable fit.
Rayon Challis (contrast fabric)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The upper edge of the front inset was raised by 1 3/4" and the length of the bias lower bodice shortened by 6 3/4".
A contrast exposed bias binding finished the neckline edge.
The long sleeves were shortened by 15" from the casing line, then sewn to the top as two-piece sleeves, with a stitched narrow hem, slit and tie.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others
I have already made the view with flutter sleeves. I might use this pattern again as I find the version with kimono sleeves very interesting.
I would recommend this pattern to others.
Great pattern with four different styles of tunics and tops.
