Purple People Eater

Pattern Description: Butterick 5247, Misses Tunic, Dress, Belt.  I made view B without the belt

Pattern Sizing:  Available in sizes 8-24.  I cut a 14

I paired the tunic with my favorite black suede booties for a night out with the ladies

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?  Very.  I previously made Butterick 5100 which was very similar in style and construction so this pattern gave me no problems.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?  No dislikes.  Liked how simple and easy it was to assemble and can be styled in many different ways with some accessories.

Fabric Used:  A lightweight purple ribbed knit

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:  None.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?  I would like to sew this again in a print but that would be it for this pattern.  I do recommend it to others.  Quick sew for instant gratification.

Conclusion: Very easy and fun to play around with different looks.  If you haven't tried it already you should.  It looks great on every person I have seen review it on PR.

Cute broach that I picked up in DC for $1

Bottom Line:
Fabric: 2 yds @ 3.98/yd=$7.96
Notions: thread from my stash
Accessories: broach for $1
Total: $8.96
