For shirt/tunic lovers
Hello my dear friends, today for you is the review of this beautiful tunic or shirt that many women are loving for the comfort that it bring to us; I must say that it provides plenty of space to move our bodies around while still it has a good fit, so I would not call it an over sized shirt.
Before starting to sew this shirt, I washed the fabric to prevent any shrinking of the fabric after the garment is done, because when it happens, it is so terrible. So while the fabric did not shrink, I did saw some whitish spots in the fabric when I was taking out of the washer machine and I thought that was ruined, well it was spots of fabric that have been drying already, so guess what??? this fabric is just perfect material for those hot summers. Good to know!
Fabric: shirting fabric
fabric store: local fabric store in Cartagena, Colombia.
Pattern: Vogue 1509 from McCalls
Embroidery: It is an Elephant built in the emboridery memory of my brother sewing machine
About this pattern, I love it and I can not wait to finish the valances of my son's room to make another one.
- I make a change to the pattern. Instead of rolling my sleeves up, I rather make the sleeve 3/4 and avoid myself having the issue of one sleeve shorter than the other. I cut it at 17" long.
- The fit is perfect and I have plenty of space to move around in it and the best yet, it covers my butt so you can perfectly wear this tunic with leggings and not to worry so much about revealing so much.
This is all for now, I hope you enjoy the review and notes about this wonderful pattern that I can not wait to make again and my neighbors love so much.
Have a wonderful week, God Bless you all!
