|Pattern Description: |
From the pattern envelope: "Misses' Tunic, Skirt and Pants: Close-fitting, partially lined tunic has princess seams peplum, and narrow hem. A: wrong side may show on back hemline. B: Stitched hem on sleeves. Semi-fitted skirt or tapered pants have contour waist. All have back zipper. C: Back slit. Custom fit for A, B, C, D cup sizes."
I make the tunic only. That said I'm reluctant to rate this as a recommend with modifications pattern since I only made one item from the pattern. I like this tunic, but I didn't make a muslin and I found that it wasn't my idea of "close-fitting" and ended up taking in the side seams a few times until I got a fit I was happy with.
This is a multi-sized pattern A5 (6, 8, 10, 12, 14) and E5 (14, 16, 18, 20, 22).
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes. I did make some changes to the shape of the neckline though.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I did abandon the instructions half way through since I wanted to insert an invisible zipper before sewing the side seams.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the shape of the peplum and the princess seams. I was not a fan of the neckline so I changed the shape.
100% cotton print.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I lowered the neckline 2" in the front and tapered towards the centre back. Instead of lining the bodice, I finished the neckline with black bias tape.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I don't know if I would make another one because one peplum tunic in the wardrobe I think is enough. But I would recommend this pattern. I found that I had to take in the sides quite a bit so I would making a muslin.
