A few notes before you get cutting and sewing:
- Depending on the size you're making, you may be able to cut your garment along the weft or warp to get slightly different looks. For example, the pattern is drafted for a 44" fabric, but we cut our brown sample from a 47" option. Rather than cut it down to 60" and lose all that waste, we simply made our tunic slightly longer. When you lengthen the tunic, it also lengthens your sleeve. This means more sleeve is gathered into the 'armhole' to create more volume!
- You can also add a belt or darts to create a more flattering shape.
- Take the fabric that was left from the neck hole and create a flower or some type of applique to avoid all waste!
- If you want to bind the neck hole, you can cut some fabric off the bottom of the tunic to create bias tape.
1. Print out or draw the diagram directly onto your fabric with a washable marking tool.
2. Mark your neck hole, armhole, and the slit on both sides.
3. Fold neckline using a rolled hem. As an alternative method, you can serge or bias bind using scraps of fabric.
