I absolutely love fashion and the process of styling and getting dressed. Having that said, this is far from reality when trying to hustle two kids out of the house each morning! I’m usually left with 10 minutes to myself, scrambling to put something together that looks half decent. The Vallea Tunic free sewing pattern is perfect for days when you need to get dressed and go! Although this tunic will have you ready in a flash, you’ll also look fabulous. This simple longline tee has flattering side slits and an unexpected back detail allowing just the right amount of skin to peek through. I used Mood Fabrics’ vegan cupro which feels amazing all by itself. Try using one of Mood’s beautiful silk panels to bring your tunic to another level! Complete your look with jeans or a comfy pair of leggings. How do you plan on styling your tunic?
