So here's my version:
So, obviously there are some noticeable differences from the line drawings. :)
The sleeves! These are straight up from the pattern, just as drafted. I'm 5'7" and typically with StyleArc, the sleeves are just perfect but not these!
I knew they would be shorter, and I really like the length, so I'm not disappointed at all. Just beware if you print this off as a PDF from Etsy, you may need to alter the length.
Let's look at the neckline for a moment, shall we?
On the pattern, the neckline is a mere slit. To get mine to look like the pattern drawing, I redrew it to more of a keyhole using my french curve and a washable fabric marker. After checking it three or four times, I finally was happy and sewed it. I like it this way!
Oh, I have such a goofy smile on my face! The sleeve cap is very easy to set in. In fact, if you didn't put the side slits in, you could sew the sleeves in flat and then stitch the side seams.
One thing the pattern drawing doesn't show is the button and loop closure at the neckline. I just made a self-fabric loop, sewed it in between the facing and the top so it is nice and neat. The button, which is square and pearly is from my stash.
Another alteration I had was to lengthen the body of the tunic by 2 inches. Had I not done this, it would have been much too short to wear with the white leggings that I love so much!
Thanks for reading!
