Pattern Review: B6367- Tunic

I love super easy patterns that don't make me cuss!  But me and sleeves are not friends!  I almost slapped this project because my sleeve would not act right.  This is a versatile See and Sew pattern found here, that is great for beginners.


Pattern Description: 

Pullover tunic (semi-fitted through bust) has neck and asymmetrical hemline variations, long sleeves, and narrow hem. A: Left side slit and V-neckline. B: Wrong side shows on hemline and scoop neckline. I made view A.

Pattern Sizing:

18w-32w, I cut a straight 22w

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?


Were the instructions easy to follow?


What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

I love the lines of this basic tunic, with two neck variations and the asymmetric hems, you can mix and match necklines and hems.

Fabric Used:

Stretch poly crepe from Fabricmart

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

I sewed this straight out the package after taking my flat measurements, this was my muslin. The pattern had 6" of ease in the bust so I didn't need a FBA. I did have to make my sleeves three quarter length since I didn't add my usual 1.5" to the sleeve length so they were too short. I didn't make my usual 2" hem increase, I'm 5'9" and most patterns are too short as the are drafted for someone 5'6. Also, I didn't make a shoulder slope adjustment, the top keep creeping backwards as I moved around and choked me, ugh! I thought I might need to lower the dart, but after assessing the fit I noticed my shoulder seam was falling towards the back making me constantly pull my shirt down, what a pain! ! I need to adjust the shoulders, but I don't know what adjustment to make. I plan on making this again in different hems, I will add to the sleeve and hem and adjust the shoulders.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?



Overall great tunic pattern that's great for beginners, top only h as three pattern pieces that needed minimal fitting. I got some much needed practice with the v neckline.
