Description

This tunic top was featured in the April issue of Burda Magazine. I found this very funky fabric and thought the combination with this unusual shape would either be great or awful :-)
It was quite challenging to get the cross over part right. With hindsight it might have been better to make the dress version, but hey-ho I might do that another time.

    I agree – it looks great! And it’s probably better then if you had made the dress version. That fabric might have been, err… wearing you, instead of the other way around. (chuckles) As it is, it’s a lovely, playful and elegant garment that looks just perfect, in or out of the jacket. Well done!

      Thanks Charlie! Every time I wear it to work I get so many compliments, which is great. Good to build my confidence. I find it works best with a nice belt to give it a bit more shape.

    When I saw this pattern in the magazine I wasn’t sure about it. But I totally love your version. Maybe I should give this a try!

      Hi Maria – Yes give it a try :-) It took me a while to figure out how to make it, but it was fun to make something that is somewhat unusual.
