Pattern: McCall's 5662, view C
Fabric: Poly/Lycra Jersey
Description: Drapey tunic with self-faced middle sections and looped overlay.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think it does!
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were very easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the drapey-ness of the design. It looks kind of Grecian. I like the looped overlay on the middle section. That's a cute added detail. I also like the deep V in the back.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I didn't have to make any alterations. I used a regular machine stitched hem for all of my finishing. I didn't want to use my coverstitch as I would normally do. I wanted the finish to simple and clean. I added beaded rosettes because I remembered a top in Anthropologie that I'd seen a while ago and thought it would be a nice touch.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? There are very few patterns that I repeat and this one is trendy, so I probably will not sew this one again. But, I do recommend it.
Conclusion: This is pattern was very easy to follow, that had great directions and tips and suggestions throughout.
