Amy Butler Pattern Info
Pattern Rating:Highly Recommend
Current Tags What is a Tag:
Fabric:Cotton  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description:
Tunic with button closure. Four different options - Cami, Tunic, Minidress, and Dress. I made the tunic.

Pattern Sizing:
XS-XL. I cut the Small.

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?
This is the second time that I've used this pattern. I wouldn't recommend it for a beginner, but a seasoned pattern sewist will find the instructions easy to follow.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the simplicity of the pattern. There aren't many pieces to cut. I was able to complete this in an afternoon. The yoke can be a bit tricky to add.

Fabric Used:
Vintage cotton

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I omitted the body lining and the belt. I added a bias trim to the yoke.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would definitely recommend this pattern. This is the second time that I've made it. With all of the options available, it is one that you can revise again and again.

Conclusion:

Super cute! I love your choice of fabrics. The yellow bias and buttons really pop. I've been looking at this pattern for months, so I'm glad to see someone make it recently.
