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!!
