Pattern: New Look 6620
Fabric: Cotton Jersey (25% stretch)

Description: Misses Knit Tunic Top

I made this top about two weeks ago and it hung in the closet since then. I wasn't too sure about this one because it really didn't turnout the way I had visioned. I thought from the picture that the top was cut a little more a-line than it actually was and since this was a knit, I thought that it would have more ease throughout the hip and I was wrong. It was very tight, so tight at the time that when I tried it on over my jeans, you could see the print of the pockets! I cut it off right above the hip and hemmed it. The instructions were super easy, I made this top in an afternoon. I chose to do View C because I really like the ties on the sleeve much better than the kimono sleeves (I'm kinda tired of that look). I do plan on making this one again... since it has a waistline seam, I'll go up a size.

Pattern: Butterick 4861
Fabric: Wool/Silk blend

Description: Below mid-knee pants

This is View A, another version of the gauchos that I did. This is pretty much the same review as this one... Fast & Easy. Only difference with this on is the surplus pockets and the leg bands. Oh, forgot to take a pic, but I added faux flap back pockets with buttons. Since I made two trendy items from this one pattern, I think this is the last time I'll use this one.
