Out on a limb with Mc Calls 6607

I don't know what possessed me to get this pattern. It's not a style I've ever even considered before. I think I'm too short for tunics and too busty for big low drapey cowls, but I saw the pictures of Margy's and I had the right fabric and perhaps I just wanted to try something different for a change, so I gave it a whirl.
I kind of like it. Its really quick and easy. The pattern envelope says it very-loose fitting and it is. I cut out a 16, but took in the side seams a lot. Next time I would start with a 12. The armholes are way too low for me (the fabric pulls forward towards the bust). I also took out some of the width in the hips. If the right fabric crosses my path, I will make it again.

  1. Love your tunic and the way you have worn it over black. Very nice. I have this fabric too. Love what you have done with it.

    1. I got mine from fabric.com. Its called Viva Hatchi sweater knit. They did have it in other prints, but really, I don't need to be buying more fabric, do I?

  2. Styling this tunic as you have, over all black, works brilliantly on you! The armhole is deep, but so is Margy's one,it must be a feature of the pattern (that you could easily alter in your next on). Hopefully you will stumble across the 'right-fabric' soon to make another...J

    1. Thanks for the compliment. The armhole isn't so low I won't wear the thing, but I will certainly change it next time.
