In the mean time I have completed Kwik Sew 3770, view B and McCall's 6242, view A. Both are fantastic patterns!
I used a rayon/lycra knit, from my stash, for the leggings and a mystery knit for the the tunic. The mystery knit was found locally on a flat fold table for $3.99/yard. I didn't worry too much about trying to match the stripes, since it is such a busy stripe pattern. I like the tunic and will highlight a few of the details, but the shape without a belt is too boxy for me. Even though this pattern is rated "easy", there are eight pieces and some interesting seams, so I would rate it a bit more advanced than "easy", although the instructions are very well written so construction goes along just fine.
|The way the collar is drafted prevents seams from showing around the neckline.|
|Not sure I like how wide the shoulders and extra fabric under the arm look from the back as far as shape goes.|
|Fantastic detail: Gusset for modesty.|
|The epaulet would also be fun in a contrasting fabric. It encloses the seams on the inside, keeping it very neat! There are 3 pleats on the front shoulder seam and 3 pleats on the back shoulder seam.|
I will see you again in a couple of weeks. Thank you for your thoughts on the last knit dress, I think it is one of my favorites! Keep on sewing if you can, because I plan to pop into your blogs to see what you all are up to! Aloha for now!
