DIY TWO PIECE + PATTERN REVIEW NL6461
HI DARLINGS! Well my mind is officially BLOWN… I can’t believe how well SEW IT! Academy is doing. Today is the LAST DAY to enroll. I am taking the registration down until June so no one will be able to enroll after 12pm PST today. We will re-launch in June at a new monthly rate of $11.97 so if you or your friends haven’t signed up for the $9.97 rate this is your last chance. Unlike the six month or annual membership the monthly membership remains $9.97 for the life of your membership if you sign up today.

Okay now on to this fab two piece that I am obsessed with and plan to make A LOT!!! New Look #6461 is an awesome pattern. (pattern review for both pants and top below)
Pattern Sizing: I cut the the 8 in the tunic and a 10 in the pants
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes! Oh my gosh I LOVE this pattern. The pants are so easy and have an elastic waist and the top/tunic is perfect.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved how easy and comfy it looked.
Fabric Used: I used a beautiful LINEN KNIT from Michael Levine for the tunic and a gorgeous SILK/RAYON print I picked up at THE FABRIC STORE on LaBrea
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? YES! I plan to make this two piece at least twice, lol!
