|Fabric:||Cotton-Lycra Knit [See other projects in this fabric]|
|Pattern Description: Semi-fitted, pullover tunic has yokes, side slits and stitched hems. Back is longer than front, wrong side shows. Front, back and sleeves|
Pattern Sizing: 6-14. I cut a 10 but ended up taking it in quite a bit.
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 I didn't really use them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It's quick and easy. Its a nice alternative to a plain long-sleeved tee. I dislike the finish on the neckline - I don't like turned under necklines on knits. I dislike being told to easestitch and gather my sleeve on a knit shirt. Its not hard to make a sleeve head that will fit in a knit top using just the stretch to ease it in. Vogue makes knits so much more complicated than they need to be.
Fabric Used: A rayon-lycra knit from Gorgeous Fabrics.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I took 3" off of the pattern before I even cut the fabric and another 3" off before I hemmed it. It's very long. I also sewed the side seams with a 1" seam allowance - I cut a 10 based on my measurements but ended up sewing a 6, and there is still plenty of wearing ease. I added a neck band to finish the neckline.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I'll sew it again. I would recommend it, but be prepared to play with the sizing depending on your fitting preferences, and height!
Conclusion: This pattern was fine, I knew I would make alterations because I really didn't want a 'tunic', and I know Vogue's sizing is wonky. But it was a quick sew and I'm happy with the result. More at
