Pattern Description:
Loose fitting oversized tunic offers a choice of a collar or hood. View A is sleeveless with a collar. Views A & B have feature a shaped hemline. View B has a front pocket. View C has a high/low hemline

Pattern Sizing:
Sizes XS- M and LG XXL; oversized
I wanted a loose, large tunic, so I made a size larger than usual. But the pattern is designed to be big, so I think I would have been just as happy with my usual size.

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, except I found the front placket instructions a little confusing the first time I read through them. But, when I reached that step, it made a lot more sense and came out just fine.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked that it is oversized.

Fabric Used:
Sweater knit, acrylic (I think)

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No design changes, which is unusual for me!
The only construction change I made was to cover every seam, hem and raw edge with bias tape because my fabric was kinda ravely.
I adjusted the placement of the button and button loop. Instead of a toggle button as suggested, I choose a large, square art glass button.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, Id make this again. I like the cut and fit. It was easy to make. I think View B with a collar would be wonderful in a fleece or flannel.
Yes I recommend this pattern.

This pattern is easy and goes together quickly. Wrong sides of the fabric show on the inside of the hood, so the center hood seam needs to be finished. I finished all the seams, hems and raw edges with pink bias tape. The hem finish on the rear hem is visible in the photo of the front. The seam finish on the neck and hood are visible in the photo of the back (and my half mannequin is clearly visible, too!)
Its comfortable to wear. I love that it is oversized, and next time I will cut my size (instead of one up).
