I had a great time being part of the panel and sewing Liesl + Co. Gallery tunic. A relaxed-fit pull-on dress with in-seam pockets, button-cuff full-length sleeves, and a band collar. It has many details of a shirt but immensely easier to sew. I specially like the trick on the cuffs as I hate the majority of plackets. As sew-along comes to a closure I would love to share my version. I may add that I loved so many lovely versions made of the pattern, which shows how versatile the pattern is.
As mentioned on my initial plans I sewn view B. I know many people like to know others sewists sizes so for your reference I sewn Size 8 with an inch FBA.This is my first time sewing Liesl patterns and I can vouch for the solid explanationsand clarity of the written instructions. The whole process of making this dress and adding a FBA was a breeze. Fit wise; besides the full bust adjustment I lengthed the sleeves and hem.
After the toile I gave up on the idea of lengthening to a ladylike knee length and kept the original volume. I felt that lengthening would make the design unbalanced. Fabric wise; I been a good girl and didn’t but anything new (errr…. plaid). After digging the stash I found this delicious viscose. The drape and body was perfect for the design. The print of pansies is just perfect to transition winter clothing to spring. I didn’t add the belt wraps as planned but with so many cute belts in my closet I decided that having a self tie would restrict the different looks.
