Butterick 5100

Pattern Description: Pullover, sleeveless tunic in two lengths and dress have deep V-front neckline and extended shoulders, separate tie belt or purchased belt. D: cowl collar. I made view D with the cowl collar.

Pattern Sizing: XS-XL; I cut an XL but ended up taking in the sides a lot.

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? Instructions? Lol, this was very easy and I didn't look at the instructions.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This pattern was very easy to assemble and really can be done in one hour. I think it took longer to cut out than to construct.

Fabric Used: Some mystery knit that I picked up for about $1/yd.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I used stitch witchery on the armholes simply because I didn't have a matching thread. It only added about 10 minutes or so to construction time.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Although there is nothing extraordinary about this pattern, I may make the V-neck version A to pair with jeans for a more casual look.

Conclusion: Very simple pattern that went together in no time.

Bottom Line:
Fabric: Roughly two yards of mystery knit at $1/yd= $2
Notions: thread from stash
Total $2
