Description

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.

Material Notes

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.

    I think it fits pretty well, and it’s definitely very well made.

    I honestly think it looks great on you. You could also style it with a belt or something. But just this way, I really like it on you.

    You’re being too hard on yourself, I think it looks cool!
