Pattern Description:

Knit tunic with an asymmetrical high low hem, with front seaming that create the illusion of a waistline.

Pattern Sizing:

I purchased this pattern as part of a weekend workshop with the American Sewing Guild. As part of the workshop we were able to try on several of Linda's patterns in EVERY size. This was great, and in Linda's patterns I wear a size small.

This is not the case with commercial patterns, so I would recommend sizing down in this pattern.

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

My version did not because the Liberty shirt was initially a button up shirt. I eliminated the front placket and buttons to make a knit tunic.

Were the instructions easy to follow?

Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

I liked the A-line, asymmetric high low hem, and the front seaming.

Fabric Used:

Cotton Jersey

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

I cut the front and back on the fold eliminating the front placket. I also made a crew neckline. The rest of the tunic was made according to the pattern instructions.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

Yes, I would sew this again. And I hope to sew this in woven as well. I believe Chambray would be great for this.

Conclusion:

As I mention above I would definitely sew this again. This was my first time sewing a Linda Lee pattern. As part of the workshop I attended I did purchase additional Sewing Workshop patterns. If you would like to see my full review of the Liberty Shirt visit my blog bluesundayblog.

I love your version of the Liberty. I have it cut out in a silk/wool blend. This tunic idea is awesome.

What a great adaptation. I love it. I have made the Liberty Shirt in the sewing with silk class and love the fit. I will have to try it as a Tee.
