Pattern Description:
Misses’ easy to sew tunics with length variations and tie belt. This versatile mock wrap tunic pairs well with leggings for an easy on-trend look. Make it with a long sleeve, short sleeve or sleeveless with a front flounce.

Pattern Sizing:
I cut a 12, but actually feel like I could have gone down to a 10 to make it a tad bit more well fittingย in the top.

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?
Very!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I didn’t dislike anything major. I liked that it was very clear with instructions and there were no guessing games involved. Personally, I wish the cut were a little higher in the bust area, but it is nothing that a tank or cami cannot solve. Also, the darts did not seem necessary with this particular pattern. I also really love the hem. That is what drew me to this pattern from the start!

Fabric Used:
I used a poly interlock from Walmart. The exact description: Shason Textile Poly Interlock Floral Print.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I plan to make it again! This one is view A. I plan to make B and C, and a C with short sleeves. Not a fan of flounce, so not doing D.

Conclusion:
This was a very easy, quick sew. It took me the course of a few days due to other obligations, but I love it! Cannot wait to make it again. Great wardrobe builder!
