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
