I present Simplicity 3786 (hopefully I get a better picture later wearing it). Since it has been well over a month since I began this garment, let me refresh your memory. This is the pattern and fabric:
It's an okay top. I have never been a big tunic gal, but they seem to be everywhere this year and thought I would give one a try. The pintucks do add interest and the elastic insert in the back keeps it from being too blousey. My cotton may be a little too stiff as it still poufs out in front for that much sought-after maternity look. I am hoping a few washings will soften in up a little.
One thing I don't like is the band collar. It's too big and sticks up. If I ever make this again I would make the collar half the size.
All in all, it's okay and it's DONE! Time to move on.......nothing here to see...........
