|Pattern Description: Ottobre labels this as a tunic, but as is it lands at my knees, making it more dress length. I shortened it so that all total with the hem bands I added it hits me mid-thigh. I'm pretty sure mid-thigh is what Ottobre is going for here. Oh, you lovely tall Finns.|
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.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love how simple it is. It makes dressing in the morning easy as you can throw it on under anything, add a pair of tights or leggings, maybe a necklace and you're good to go.
Nothing to dislike.
Cotton/poly ivory jacquard knit plus some nylon tricot for lining
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Because my knit was so so white, I wanted to add some contrast which I did in the way of a hem band and cuffs in a peach pink rib knit. I had to bring the neck side of the shoulder in a little bit too to ensure bra strap coverage. The hem band took the place of the elastic.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I love this style for cooler weather. It's fun and hip and easy!
Conclusion: Another Ottobre winner.
