This tunic pattern is my new love. I just finished making the white one with the red polka dots. This patter is easy to cut out and make.
The fabric that I used is a lightweight linen. Since I made this tunic for myself I practiced as many skills as I could. One of the more challenging skills that I practiced is French seams. I must admit that I would like to have some more practice but I am not dissatisfied with the result.
Since my backside continues to become more and more broad, I added side slits so that the tunic fit easily over my hips.
When I make the next one I will change the assembly so that I can do some things that I want to do. For instance, I will set the sleeve in separately instead of sewing the side seam and the underarm seam all at the same time as the instructions indicate. Are you amazed that I followed the instructions this time? I am. I won’t do it again though. I do say that with humor. I plan to sew the sleeve in differently so that I can finish the underarm seams and the side seams with a French seam. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
I do think that this tunic is lovely but it may be a bit plain for my liking. I believe that I will get out my stamps and my ink so that I can add some ’embellishments”.
