Pattern Description:
Tunic
Pattern Sizing:
ZZ L-XXL. I made a large.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Mostly, though see below for design change.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Easy and fast.
Fabric Used:
Heavy poly-Spandex blend.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Because I didn't use a solid,I decided against the outside seams and ribbon.I also tacked the neck down due to a short neck.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would definitely try another view, and I would recommend this for ease and comfort.
Conclusion:
Had the pattern and fabric for 2 years...glad I got around to this. Very comfortable.

Looks nice. Like you I have had the pattern for years and yet to make it. Perhaps it is time for me to try it.
