The pattern was easy to work with and I love the neckline. It is folded over and secured at the top and bottom. It doesn't require top-stitching and it lays flat even after washing!! I did added some clear elastic around the waistband to keep it a little bit more secure. I was worried it may end up a little maternity but I think the soft lightweight fabric worked out perfect. It stays flat against the belly but is still flowy enough that I can pig out at dinner!
I picked up the fabric at GirlCharlee about a year ago. It is a rayon jersey knit and it feels super soft. It also doesn't cling to my leggings.....which is reason enough to buy bolts of the stuff.
After looking at the pictures, I think it will look fabulous with my cowboy boots too! I love this pattern and plan to make another one tunic length in a solid fabric very soon! Surprise happy endings are the BEST!!
