When I discovered Miss Matatabi last year, I ordered some Kokka 3 min. corduroy (you can see my corduroy dress here). They had a picture of the blue colourway made up into an oversized top which quite took my fancy. I didn't buy the pattern at the time, but kept thinking about it, until I decided that the Stylearc Elani would give me the same sort of effect.
After reading Meg's review of the Elani Tunic, I left off the pockets. My cuffs don't fold back. This wasn't intentional. I block fused some rayon to use for the neck, hem and sleeve facings, thinking that they would sit better in a lighter fabric than the corduroy. I did remember about the cuffs before I sewed the sleeve facings on, but by then I had made facings in the rayon and couldn't be bothered making another set. Not a big deal, I know, but sometimes you need to get finished and get on with other stuff.
I don't think my tunic looks as good as either Meg's or the Stylearc model. Not sure if it is just fabric choice, or body type or if I should have sized down. Anyway, hubby liked it and was surprised I changed out of it to go out to dinner.
