Ok, this was almost too easy to make, I mean seriously there was literally only 2 pieces!
I have only one, no two gripes with this top/tunic. One, I stand @ 5'9 and this, is not a tunic on me, it's actually a dress, lol. This tunic stops right above my knees! My fault though, I didn't pay that, much attention when laying my pattern out. Two, this is not a bra friendly top! I can just remedy this by wearing a tank, but I will be cutting a few inches off the length before i can actually wear this in public. I had this top on the other day, and my daughter thought I made a cute nightgown, lol.





Pattern Description:
Tunics A, B, C, D are mid-thigh length. A, B: mock wrap fronts, sleeve variations and fabric belt. C, D: loose-fitting with scooped neck and three-quarter length sleeves. C: sleeves have elastic casing and purchased belt. D: ribbon belt.

Pattern Sizing:
Y(XS-S-M), ZZ(L-XL-XXL) View D

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?
Didn't need them

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like that this only involved 2 pieces of fabric. I didn't like how long this turned out to be(dress length), and it's not bra friendly.





Fabric Used:
Bamboo knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
It was really easy to make, but i only need one.

Conclusion:
On the envelope this didn't look that long!! Well, anyway, although I wasn't umber happy with this top, I will wear it with a tank and trim a few inches from the length to make it an appropriate length for me. I mean its doable, lol. I think I'll be happier with view A, in the future.


Playing catch-up with my posting, can u tell I'm off today, lol.
Well, Seeya!
