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 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
