Misses’ and Women’s Tunic: Loose fitting, pull over tunics. (Mine is not quite loose – my preference). Extended shoulders, stitched hem. I made view A that has short sleeve on right side left side drapes, angled hem and optional jewels. (Wrong side of fabric will show.)
Pattern Sizing: Comes in Misses’ (8 through 16) and Women’s (18W through 24W.) I made size 10.
Did it look like the photo or drawing once done sewing with it? Well, yes. It was just a bit more fitted. Like I wanted it.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Well, to be honest I didn’t look at the instructions one bit, so I am not sure if they were or were not.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like asymmetrical sleeves and drapes. The only thing I dislike is that the underarms are VERY LOW. I sewn a whopping 3.5 inches to close the abundance of exposure. ***If you make the top as is be sure to shave and keep your hands at waist level.***
Fabric used? I used a slub knit from the stash purchased from Fabric.com a while ago.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made. Well, 1. This view comes with only three pieces. I used one. “How?” You might say. Well, there is a front and a back. They are identical except the neckline for the front is just lower than the back. 2. I cut both front and back using the back pattern piece on doubled fabric. When it came to the neckline I cut the back as is and cut the front lower. 3. There is also a neckband piece. I didn’t want to fool with it because I was doing quick and easy. I omitted that and just roll-folded the neck seam and topstitched.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Well, I do like it and want to make another but I doubt it will soon. I’m keeping it just in case. Yes, I recommend.
Conclusion. A woman MUST have a red top and I have mine.
Until Later, Schey.
