A tunic top with 2 sleeve lengths and pocket options
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Apart from my changes yes..
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Minimal Ottobre instructions as usuall - but they were fine
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
flared tunic top to make as a present.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1. Made sleeves with mini sleeve bands instead of hemming the sleeves
2. Turned and folded the neckline - the binding pulled the neckline out of shape - I am sure that was operator error!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes I would sew it again (as actually the size 170 would fit me!) and I would recommend it to others
lovely quick knit top.
- the instructions suggest sewing one shoulder seam, then attaching the neckline binding then sewing the shouder seam... which is what I did, but I did not like this method and stretched the neckline out of shape......NEXT TIME. I would sew both shoulder seam, prepare the neckline binding and applying it using the pin and quatering method I use for ribbing
- I gathered the sleeve heads by running them through the overlocker on the "2" setting - gathering up the fabric THEN sewing them onto the garment.
