Simplicity 3867

 This is the first garment from my March/April sewing goals posted here.


 Pattern Description:
Empire waist tunic
Pattern Sizing:
I cut the size 12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Most definitely!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very much so---nothing really tricky about them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I loved the style, the waist tie, and especially the volume of the top
Fabric Used:
A cotton fabric with an array of texture, containing both embroidery and eyelets.

(Here's a closeup of the fabric)

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None whatsoever
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Absolutely! Absolutely! Absolutely!
 (Excuse fabric buckle near top--oops--I sewed the hook and eye in too tight. I hate sewing hooks and eyes--LOL!)
