DIY - Cowl Neck Tunic - McCall's M6612

DIY- Cowl Neck Tunic View A - McCall's M6612

I have an obsession with trying to find long shirts or tunics to wear with leggings. My backside has to be covered at all times!! I am totally out of my comfort zone if its not.  When I saw this pattern I couldn't resist. It's stylish and can be worn with tights and leggings.  I do have a short attention span at times so it looked quick enough for me to do in a day or two with stopping to go to work and taking care of kids.

I'm sad I didn't take a pic of the fabric like I normally do for my other posts.  I believe I purchased this fabric at Joann Fabrics.  It was an impulse purchase that I had no idea what I was going to make with it.  You cant tell by the picture, but it has a very faint amount of sparkle to it.  It's a light weight jersey knit. I will tell you, to only have to cut out three pattern pieces made my day and gave me my sewing fix. LOL

The pattern was pretty easy to follow. I think the only problem I had that I had to rip the stitches out a few times was putting the pieces of elastic on the sides for it to scrunch up for a lack of a better word.  Elastic and I don't get along to well with anything that I have to do that needs it.  I can never get the stretch the way I want it or for the way it is supposed to be for that matter.  It came out well this time in my opinion.

This is the finished product. I wore it to work and received many compliments on it so I must have done it right! LOL

I will definitely be making a few more in different colors to wear with different leggings.  I was comfortable in it and that's what matters!! :)

Until Next Time!!
