Butterick 5247 - Red Hot Mama

Butterick 5247 : View C, plus Sash

Hello Everyone, I am trying to figure out this blogging stuff and so much of has happened since the first blog. I thought I would give this pattern a try since ev'rybody made this one. This was made for Valentine's Day.

This is my very first Tunic.

Pattern Review
Pattern Description: MISSES' TUNICS, DRESS AND SASH:
Semi-fitted, pullover tunics A, C or above mid-knee dresses B, D have cowl-like collar, short or long dolman sleeves and belt. Purchased top, pants and belt.
NOTIONS: One Purchased Belt.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, even for a Beginner like me. However, I thinked I attached the cowl neck just a little bit different than the instructions.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I absolutely loved it. It gave me such great satisfaction to complete something for myself.

Fabric Used: Sparkly Red Stretch Knit

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Attatched collar a bit differently and I was short a few inches of fabric, so I had to shorten the sleeves a few inches.

Would you sew it again? Yes, maybe in the Fall.

Would you recommend it to others? YES, Yes

1st Blog Posting...And Confession Time

Hello fellow DIY crafters and sewers. This is it...a plunge into blogging. I know absolutely nothing about blogging and very little, if any about sewing. So come with me on this journey as I learn and find my way.
Confession Time... I have been lurking for the past eight months at several well known sites. My girl at Sewalicous-designs (Katrina) first turned me on to surfing the blog-sites. She is a very special person to me -see, I used to baby-sit her as a child. Now it has become kind of addictive. You ladies have unknowingly convinced me that, I too, can do this sewing and blogging thing.
Sew Watch Out and see what happens...
Thank you all for visiting my site and I hope to have a wonderful experience with my blog.
Help me to learn, be inspired and just maybe inspire others, get motivated and also motivate others.
