I sewed this in my usual size using a leather-like knit. Unfortunately the fabric has very little stretch and no drape so it doesn’t fit. But that’s ok, it’ll fit someone down at the charity shop.

Pattern: Burda 03/2009 Tunic 103
Fabric: Leather-like knit.
Modifications: Shortened front and back by 2 cm at waist and 1 cm at hem. Replaced the gathers at centre front with a single inverted pleat.
