This kimono styled top was pretty easy to sew. Although the print seems a little bold here,
it's actually pretty sheer and flowy. What attracted me most to this top, was the sleeves and the back tie! They're too cute and different, well to me anyway..
Loose fitting top A, tunic B or caftan C have raised waistline, front casing with tie ends extending into back and tied into bow; top A is below hipline length; tunic B is above mid-knee length; caftan C is above ankle length; purchased leggings.
Size range from 8-24. I used 14.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, they were ok.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Nothing to dislike, the construction was not difficult at all, although I must say, when sewing the sleeve, I didn't do a lot of pinning, (and this is an odd sleeve to sew btw.) soo one sleeve is not aligned evenly. So watch out for that, lol.
Some type of sheer fabric from Hancock.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:None
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes/Yes, I plan to make this over in a solid color sheer.
Conclusion:This was pretty fun to make, didn't take long at all. I made some white capri's to go with this, and the top felt so cool and breezy!
Seriously tho, this is as close as I will ever get to a caftan, mu-mu or housedress, lol. Well,... unless it's a coverall for a swimsuit.....
Click to see the alignment issue, and magnify!
You can kinda see where it's uneven , but it's actually not very noticeable at all. I can live with it!
