Pattern Description:
Close fitting and flared tunic with shaped hemline.

Pattern Sizing:
XS-XXL

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes! Looks great!

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy to follow. No issues.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really liked this pattern. I made 2. No dislikes.

Fabric Used:
A 2 way stretch knit from Christine Jonson. Nice fabric.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made a size M and did a 1.5 inch FBA and a .50 inch broad back. There are 2 front pieces, you cut 1 of each. But they are both the same. I only adjusted one and traced the second piece off of it. Why do a FBA on two separate pieces. I am lazy like that.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes! I have made 2. Love it. The front can fly open in a strong wind. So keep that in mind. I normally wear a cami under mine. Just in case.

Conclusion:
Another great wardrobe builder. Easy to make.
