Pattern Description: Misses' & Plus Size Khaliah Ali Collection tunic or top with neckline variations sewing pattern.

Pattern Sizing: 10-18 20W-28W

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes but had to read and reread instructions for applying the neckband. I had to pay close attention to make sure I attached the BOTTOM of the neckband to the neckline. Once I realized this everything aligned perfectly.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Love this pattern in a knit versus a woven. Top flows beautifully in the ITY knit. No dislikes.

Fabric Used: ITY knit print and solid. I often joke that my fabric speaks to me. I ask it what it wants to be and it tells me lol. This fabric screamed " I want to be this tunic".

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Very loose fit so only blended from size 20 to size 22 at hips when stitching side seams.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes if I had a need for this style and yes

Conclusion: I love this fabric/ pattern combo. The top is very comfortable. I feel ultra feminine when I wear it.

Your top looks great! I love styles like this - so less confining and they dress up/down so easily. Nice!
