Modkid’s Melanie Tunic (there is also a girl’s version)
Fabric I used:
Blue stripes are Target sheets* & red/blue print is a vintage remnant
Changes I made:
I added a small line of ruching on the sleeve.
What I might do if I make it again:
I would make it with short sleeves! I think the proportions are a little heavy with the swing-y bodice and the 3/4 length sleeves.
Overall thoughts on the garment:
I like it! It is a blousier silhouette than I am normally drawn to, but it’s super comfy and modern. Pockets are always a plus.
Overall thoughts on the pattern:
Just like my Modkid Breeann, the pattern is 100% professional and comes together easily. I did think the arms were a little baggy, but that could be a product of my fabric choice. The directions are clear and easy. This is a great pattern to use up remnants on the sides and pockets!
Perfect for wearing with leggings that don’t have pockets – just stick your phone in your tunic.
The back! I used the sheets’ existing hems, so there are two spots where it looks wonky but.. it’s Target’s fault!
