Washi Tunics

Finally getting around to sharing my tunics!

Note to self :: take pictures before you wear and wash.  (I hate ironing!)

First up, one in a print from Indie by Pat Bravo:

I made this one the standard tunic length suggested in the pattern, but I shortend the seam under the bust by an inch to compensate for my short waist.

Really fast to make since there are no zippers/buttons.   Slips right over your head and it’s really comfy.

Topped it off with my hexagon belt!

Another made from a Kaffe woven check fabric in Teal:

It’s not as wonky as it appears.  The fabric is fairly thin so it hangs a little funky on the hanger.

This one is my favorite in terms of comfort because the fabric is so so soft.

I made it first and shortened the length instead of the seam under the bust.    I like the fit of the other better.

Probably would have helped to make a muslin, but that’s never how I roll!   One day I’ll learn (hmm, most likely never, ha).

I also omitted the neck detailing from the original.   I like the simple classic neckline.   A dress is next on the list!

xo, Lindsey

P.S.  Michelle just released her latest pattern, the Idea Pouch.

I don’t even have an Ipad but I snatched that sucker up.    She is all kinds of genius, check out the pen pockets!?

This is gonna be my sketch pad case.   It’s on sale now for $6.00.   Don’t know how long that will last, but get it now if you want one!

  • Those are so pretty, Lindsey! I have been so close to buying that pattern a few times and I’m really not sure why I haven’t. Honestly, I think the neckline scared me a little. But I love your simple one, so I’m pretty sure you just pushed me over the edge!ReplyCancel
